Take a post turkey stroll and sketch with the London Urban Sketchers at Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland this Christmas. The Urban Sketchers meet up is on the 27th December so why not treat yourself to a new sketchbook and pens. Even better pop them on your Christmas list!
Winter Wonderland serves up a double dose of festive spirit and is a great location for sketching. So peel yourself off the sofa and away from the TV and get drawing!
What Will I Need?
You don’t want to be loaded up like a mule when sketching out and about. Take a sketchbook, a Watercolour Travel Set or a tin of Watercolour Pencils, a water brush, a couple of Pens – maybe a fine liner and a brush pen, pencils and you are good to go.
What Is Urban Sketchers?
Urban Sketchers is a non-profit worldwide network of artists who sketch the cities where they live and travel. It aims to encourage on-location drawing and to connect those who love location sketching. The project has been hugely popular with the international community of urban sketchers now estimated at 50,000.
Urban Sketchers was founded by Illustrator and journalist Gabriel Campanario, a Seattle sketcher and blogger at The Seattle Times.
“Artists of all ages and skill levels have stories to tell,” says founder Gabriel Campanario. “Urban Sketchers is a free group that provides a platform for them to renew their love of drawing and to learn more about storytelling.”
Sketchers all over the world now draw and share their life through their Sketchbooks. Everyone from the city commuter to the travelling artist sketch the streets, architecture and people that make their world.
Communities of urban sketchers have formed 60 groups in 29 countries since Urban Sketchers began and last weekend they celebrated five years of sketching! Happy Birthday Urban Sketchers!
“We aim to show the world, one drawing at a time.”
The Urban Schetchers Schedule For The Day:
The Urban Sketchers will be meeting at the Tyburn Pub at 11.30 am to sketch at Winter Wonderland between 12.30 and 3.30 pm with free entry! Warm your cockles and compare sketches afterwards at the Tyburn Pub over a festive tipple or two.
