About Us

Urban Sketchers is a friendly all-volunteer network of people from all walks of life around the world who draw the cities they live in and travel to. Our mission is to "Show the World, One Drawing at a Time."

Urban Sketchers London is one of more than 300 chapters of urban sketchers worldwide.

We organise monthly sketch walks in London which are completely free to attend - no registration or membership required. 

You can find out about forthcoming sketchwalks on our blog.

Our vision and values 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.
