Urban Sketchers, a nonprofit organization, is all about drawing. By promoting the art of drawing on location around the world, they are hoping to raise awareness and get people out and about recording their observations with pencil to paper. Saturday, they will be at the Burke Museum to draw with you.

The event, hosted by the Burke Museum, will be a day of drawing in the museum with SUS’s there to offer tips and suggestions. The Burke will have some specialty object available for close viewing and they will also be supplying art materials for you to use.

All you need to do is show up ready to be inspired and surrounded by a museum-full of artists and wonder.
