Urban Sketchers

Urban Sketchers Singapore is a group of art enthusiasts who sketch on location. Every month a sketchwalk is organized to bring members to different parts of Singapore. In January the group sketched Bedok Reservoir. The February sketchwalk was held in conjunction with “A Changed World” event. Last year, trips were organized to Dempsey Hill, Punggol Waterway Park, Bukit Timah Railway Station and Katong. You can check out their next sketchwalk here. The blog also offers useful tips on drawing for those new to it. More recent updates can be found on their Facebook page.
