Art: Drawings

A guide for finding art information in ACC libraries.

Urban Sketchers

Urban Sketchers is an amazing group of sketchers from around the world who sketch together - in their hometowns as well as on trips together to several continents.  Join their Facebook page to see what they do.  Or see where the nearest Texas chapter is!  They also sponsor a symposium annually.

They hold workshops around the world and also a annual symposium.

Maybe you want to start an informal or formal group of sketchers yourself!

They wish to raise the artistic, storytelling and educational value of location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel. We aim to show the world, one drawing at a time.

Our Manifesto

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