Urban Sketchers Manifesto

• We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation.
• Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live and where we travel.
• Our drawings are a record of time and place.
• We are truthful to the scenes we witness.
• We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles.
• We support each other and draw together.
• We share our drawings online.
• We show the world, one drawing at a time.

Here’s a link to our Flickr group where you can see some of the drawings

  1. I would very much like to join your group, was unable to make first couple of meetings, but hope to make the next one. Marian Roberts

  2. I would love to join Urban Sketchers, heard about it through one of your members at a Life Class I attended in Norwich this week. Patricia Harper

    • I love all forms of craft, especially anything using reclaimed materials, though I am an all out, self confessed rookie

  3. Do we need a link or Email about the new “Wednesday Group?” for the benefit of members not present when it was proposed, with a start next Wednesday?

    • Hey Peter, we pretty much meet every Wednesday morning at 10.30 in the Forum for the open air painting group, and the middle Sunday of each month… keep an eye on the this blog for ‘the next meeting date and place.

  4. Hi – I’d really like to join too but am a bit of a wuss when it comes to new social situations! Whereabouts in the Castle are you meeting on the 15th?

  5. Hello, I am keen to do some sketching in Norwich and am interested in the group, but am very much a beginner sketcher. Is the group for proper artists only, or is it open to people who like to do a bit of sketching? If the latter, please can you let me know how to join? I can’t find a list of dates for sketching outings on the website. How far in advance are these planned? Thanks, Jan

    • Hey Jan, you would be more than welcome to join us – we’re an open group that meets once a month somewhere in Norwich (that’s Norwich, England). Our facebook page lists meeting places and times so you can always check out https://www.facebook.com/groups/688039714652725/. We’re actually next meeting on Saturday the 16th December in Marzanos (which is the coffee shop in the Forum) at 12.30 so feel free to just turn up, keeping an eye out for a handful of people sitting drinking coffee and holding sketchbooks!!
