URBAN SKETCHERS LONDON GROUP MEMBERS This group is for: (1) people who sketch AND (2) who have Flickr Accounts AND (3) who live in or visit London AND (4) who currently sketch and draw on location in London.

Members draw London from the window of their homes, standing in the street, sitting in an art gallery, from a cafe, at a park or on the river - but sketches and drawings must always be done on location, not from photos or memory.

HOW TO JOIN We want to see your existing sketches of London before approving your application. Please provide a link when you apply to a place which shows us your sketches of London

Urban Sketchers Manifesto

• 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.

We reserve the right to remove any of your drawings that don't fit our mission.

We also encourage members to write descriptions and stories associated with each sketch.
