Urban Sketchers meet Feb. 16 at NorthPark

Urban Sketchers Dallas/Fort Worth (Group)

Free sketch outing on Saturday!! We’ll meet at the “Five Hammering Men” sculpture located in the South Court of the mall, between Neiman Marcus and Dillard’s.

At 2:00 pm we’ll have brief introductions, and then disperse to sketch.
We’ll meet back up at 4:00 pm, have our “throwdown,” and head to La Madeleine’s afterward. https://www.facebook.com/groups/urbansketchersdfw/

• 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.

Before sharing your drawings in the pool, make sure they meet these basic criteria and they are done in the spirit of the Urban Sketchers Manifesto:
• You did the drawing on location, not from photos or memory.
• You have written the location of the sketch (town and state/country) in the headline or caption.
• Studio still lifes, posed models, and drawings from imagination do not meet the guidelines or the spirit of the Urban Sketchers Manifesto.
• We also encourage members to write descriptions and stories associated with each sketch.
Images that do not meet these guidelines will be removed.
