Urban Sketchers International Symposium
Strathmore is thrilled to be a supporting sponsor of a unique and exciting Urban Sketchers event: The 4th International Urban Sketching Symposium being held in Barcelona, Spain. The Symposium is a three-day workshop running from July 11-13. Artists from around the world meet to draw, learn, and participate in field sketching sessions, lectures, panels and exhibits.
Each year participants gather in a different host city to get one-on-one interaction with local and international workshop instructors coming from every corner of the globe. Past Symposiums have been held in Portland, Oregon; Lisbon, Portugal; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Urban Sketchers is nonprofit organization with a mission is 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. They aim to show the world, one drawing at a time.
As part of our support for this year’s Symposium, we are providing our Watercolor Artist Trading cards for each of the participants. We hope everyone has fun creating and trading small sketches from around Barcelona! For more information on Urban Sketchers: http://www.urbansketchers.org/
