Come Sketch with us! All ages. All skill levels.Those who love to draw are invited to come draw with us on our Sketchcrawls around the Portland metro area. Bring your own sketching materials.
This group was started in the fall of 2008, with a dedicated google group for organizing sketchcrawls. We officially joined Urban Sketchers in March 2010. Portland was the site of the First International Urban Sketchers Symposium.
Check the calendar for our next sketchcrawl.

We follow the Urban Sketchers 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.
