History Movement:  

Our mission and manifesto clearly define Urban Sketchers as a non-profit organization. Gabe Campanaro founded Urban Sketchers in 2007. He is a journalist and an illustrator based in Seattle. 

On the forum, he invited other sketchers who enjoy sketching on location to share their sketches with one another. Sketches drawn from life and on location were the focus of the group, not from memory or photographs.  

Most urban sketches are of architecture or street scenes, but they may also depict people in cafes, on their daily commutes, or whatever else catches their attention! Sketching from life and outside a studio setting can be considered urban sketching if it is done from life. 

Today, urban sketching is all the rage, and for good reason. Groups, workshops, websites, articles, books, and videos about it exist locally and internationally. What is it, why is it so popular, and how do you join the movement?

Expert Review

What is Urban Sketching? 

It is a form of artistic reporting. A location drawing or painting is when you draw or paint on location in a city, a town, or a village that you live in or travel to. You have created a unique and artistic way of capturing a moment in time. 

It is a narrative depicting everyday life: the cup of coffee you drink in the morning, the streets you walk on throughout the day, the cars you see, the clothes you wear, and so on. 

What are the requirements for becoming an urban sketcher? 

Prepare your favorite materials: pencil, markers, colored pencils, watercolors, ink, or whatever you prefer. Finally, you need to develop an innate curiosity about the world and develop your observational skills. 

Keeping a visual diary with you will enable you to look back at your drawings later and relive all the sensations and memories of what you experienced. 

Where to Urban Sketch? 

It is a wonderful way to connect with others, you can probably find urban sketcher groups in your hometown and most likely in your city; new groups are forming every day. Sketching outings are free, there are organized weekend workshops, and there are sketching conventions and symposia that bring sketchers together. 

There is also an online community of urban sketchers. A variety of social media platforms allow sketchers from all over the world to interact with each other and share their works. 

Are you looking for some sketching ideas for your next outing? Check out a museum first! There are a variety of interesting and professional displays. Travel light as most museums only let you stand - and typically only allow pen and ink. 

Why Should You Become an Urban Sketcher? 

Is there anything better than sketching a moment to make you feel more present? Certainly not taking a quick picture and moving on. Urban sketching lets you capture your own unique artistic impression by telling a story in the moment. 

Don't hesitate to try it! In this way, you can create a freshness and a direct impression that cannot be duplicated elsewhere. 

How to Start Urban Sketch? 

First, you need to know which materials you want to use. Just pick a few favorites and go! Choose what works for you, whether it is watercolor, pen and ink, or a favorite art journal. 

Urban Sketchers should have these Manifesto 

  • Drawing on location, we capture what we see from direct observation. 
  • Our drawings depict the places we live and where we travel, as well as the things that surround us. 
  • Drawings are records of time and place. 
  • Witnessing scenes with honesty is what we do. 
  • Our individual styles are respected, and we use any media. 
  • We support one another and draw strength from each other. 
  • The drawings we make are shared online. 
  • Drawing by drawing, we show the world. 
  • It is undeniable that urban sketching existed long before 'urban sketching' became a label. The basic concept of urban sketching is to sketch on location. 

Sketching Tips 

1. Observe your surroundings

It is impossible to draw what you cannot see. You should spend time studying your subjects before putting pen to paper, and you can practice translating what you see onto paper by working with photographs.

2. Try not to be a perfectionist.

We recommend that you let go of the idea of perfection if you want to become a better artist. Then you can begin honing the details once you are familiar with the shapes, lines, and shading.

3. Practice drawing.

Doodling stimulates creativity. Figuring out proportions and how different elements work together over time is especially useful when it comes to figure drawing tips, since over time you'll be able to perceive how they interact even if they don't look exactly like forms.

4. Try Drawing Stick Figures First

One of the most important figure drawing tips is to master the stick figure before going for realism. This exercise is based on the same principles that make doodling such an effective way to practice drawing, but specifically geared toward improving how you depict the human body.

5. Change the lighting as often as possible.

Drawing relies heavily on light and shadow. Become more aware of how light and dark interact in a drawing by studying the shading process and using creative approaches to utilizing light and dark.

Urban sketching for beginners course is essential for everyone and completely user friendly.
