Urban Sketching Symposium

Urban Sketching Symposium
Co-sponsored by the Urban Sketchers blog and Flickr group and the Pacific Northwest College of Art, the 1st International Urban Sketching Symposium is slated for July 29-31, 2010 in Portland, Oregon (USA). Registration is now open.

You can find all of the relevant information, including instructors, location information and accommodations on the symposium’s blog.

There is an interactive map of the area, pinned with locations that contributors have sketched, though I would like this even more if it was actually linked to the sketches, rather than just Google’s location photos.

In cooperation with Enrico Casarosa, founder of SketchCrawl, the last day of the symposium will coincide with the 28th World Wide SketchCrawl.

For those not able to consider attending, this is still a good excuse to pay another visit to the always changing landscape of the Urban Sketchers blog and Flickr group, and through them, follow links to the contributors’ blogs and web sites.

  1. At 350$, an absolute ripp-off.

  2. Thanks for posting this Charley. I live in Portland (and PNCA being my alma mater) I urge all Portland artists to sign up. Of course if you don’t live in Portland, this is a great excuse to come visit a beautiful city at the perfect time of year!
