The symposium is an annual educational and networking event organized by Urban Sketchers, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the practice of on-location drawing.
In addition to USk Manchester, several Urban Sketchers Regional Chapters in the area are contributing to the production of the event: USk Yorkshire, USk London, and USk Birmingham. We'll be talking more about this at a later date.
Sketchers of all levels, experience, and backgrounds are welcome!
