Workshops Around the World

This is an exciting year for Urban Sketching! Urban Sketchers is 10 years old this year and they’re celebrating with year-long workshops all over the world. Excited? Click  this link to see where all the workshops are. Each city lets you pick from 10 workshops being held throughout the year.1010

Workshops in the San Francisco Bay Area

The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of Urban sketchers is excited to be holding it’s own series of 10 workshops all over the Bay Area: 10 teachers you’ve been wanting to take a workshop with, and workshops geared towards all levels of sketchers!25_usk-10classes-san-francisco-bay-area2To read more about those workshops, go to this link. If you’re interested in a Bay Area workshop, get in touch with me at suhita@gmail.com and tell me what classes you’re interested in. I’ll walk you through the registration process. (Note: I am only handling San Francisco Bay Area registrations. For all other workshops check for the appropriate person to contact.)

We have quite a fantastic lineup of workshops, so register soon. And whether you are signed up for a workshop, thinking of signing up, curious about urban sketching, or just want to meet and hangout with urban sketchers, everyone is invited to our launch party on Saturday February 11 at Arch Art & Drafting Supply in San Francisco. The event will kick off with a sketch meet-up at San Francisco’s Mission Bay at noon, followed by the launch party at Arch Art & Drafting Supply at 1:30. USk classes will be introduced and individual instructors will be available for a meet-and-greet session. Come join us even if we’ve never met before, we’re a friendly bunch!

My workshop in Seattle

I’m not teaching at our local 10×10 celebration but I am teaching with one of my favorite USk chapters, in Seattle! (this link will take you to all the Seattle classes, check them out.)

My workshop titled Capturing Chaos: Drawing a Crowd is at Pike Place Market in Seattle on May 6th, 2017. And while these sketches below are not at the Pike Place Market (they’re from a little fishing village in India), I am hoping we’ll come together and make energy-filled sketches like these! Excited? I am!

To register for Seattle workshops, contact janewingfield@gmail.com and put “Seattle 10×10” in the subject line of your email. Let her know what workshops you want to sign up for.  Jane will let you know if there are still spots open and she will help you through the registration process.

    Hi, Suhita!
    I have a granddaughter who turned 16 recently and she draws constantly and I think she is pretty good. She lives in Saratoga and I have been thinking of a gift for her important 16th birthday. A drawing or urban sketching workshop would be just the thing, I believe. Can you give me an idea of anything you might be doing toward the end of the summer? It can be anywhere – San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Mexico, Los Angeles or wherever. I think she would really love this. Any ideas? Lee Kline
