Urban Sketchers is a blog and Flickr file-sharing group devoted to promoting the practice of drawing what you see in cities and then sharing those drawings.
Contributors are asked to follow a few fairly elastic rules including:
- Draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what you see from direct observation
- Be truthful to the scenes you witness
- Share your drawings online
The blog features lots of great sketches, and links to hundreds of urban-related online drawing groups from all over the world. Don't neglect to check out the Urban Sketchers Flickr group. It's a lot of fun to browse through. Doesn't look like Athens has its own group--yet.
