Urban Sketchers Almere
Urban Sketchers Almere is a local collective, part of the global Urban Sketchers community. The goal of urban sketching is to discover the environment in which you live in a different way and to share the appreciation for it by publishing your sketches on social media. As soon as you start looking at your own city through your urban sketching eyes, your enthusiasm and pride grows. It also provides something interesting in the street scene. Where people are drawing, conversations arise with curious passers-by. In this way it creates an open atmosphere between the city residents.
Urban sketching has a broad inclusion, because it evokes creativity and the desire to draw to connect.
USk Almere, founded by artist Zita Christie, organises monthly sketch walks, workshops, talks and demos.
