Get Out and Sketch

Now that spring has arrived, take your sketchbook outside. For inspiration, visit the Urban Sketchers website . A nonprofit organization “dedicated to raising the artistic, storytelling, and educational value of location drawing,” Urban Sketchers provides a forum for architects and artists to submit their on-location drawings to the blog or Flickr Group. Created by illustrator and journalist Gabriel Campanario, a staff artist and blogger at The Seattle Times, he aims to organize educational workshops and raise funds for artists’ grants and scholarships. How long has been since you’ve taken the time to sketch?
