How to Participate

The mission of Urban Sketchers San Francisco Bay Area is to connect local on-location sketchers and show our city and region, one drawing at a time.

One night a month, usually the FIRST THURSDAY, we host a sketch night that is open to the public, along with occasional weekend events. Please see the EVENTS page on this blog for the event location, or see the sign up form on the home page if you are interested in joining us to sketch and want to receive notifications by email. You can also contact us directly using the contact form on the home page.

San Francisco Bay Area urban sketchers are invited to share their drawings on different USK platforms:
The only requirement for posting on those online forums is that the drawings be done on location, from direct observation, following the spirit of the Urban Sketchers Manifesto. Beginners with no artistic background whatsoever are welcomed and encouraged to participate, so please jump in!

Blog Correspondents
As with global Urban Sketchers blogs, participating on the USK SF Bay Area blog at is by invitation. Sketchers who post on USK blogs are known as "correspondents." They are invited based on the quality of their work, style, originality, and overall skills as visual storytellers. The goal is to make the blog as diverse as possible.

Correspondents come from all diverse backgrounds, from painting, architecture, journalism, advertising, illustration, graphic design or teaching. All of them share the same passion for drawing on location.

Being a correspondent means a strong involvement in our community of sketchers, including posting to the blog regularly —a minimum of once a month— and offering feedback to fellow sketchers. Correspondents not only add individual drawings to the blog but also narrative explaining the circumstances in which the sketch was done or a particular story behind it.

When a new blog correspondent is invited by the blog administrators, they are asked to agree to our shared commitment:
