Urban sketchers draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what they see from direct observation. Their drawings tell the story of the surroundings, the places they have travelled. Their drawings are a record of time and place. They use any kind of media and cherish individual styles. Bring your own drawing tools, join them as they do Danga Bay. Free of charge.
