Urban Sketchers is an international nonprofit dedicated to fostering a global community of artists who practice on-location drawing. Its mission is to raise the artistic, storytelling and educational value of on-location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel.

It was started by a Seattle-based journalist and illustrator Gabriel Campanario, with an online forum ‘for all sketchers out there who love to draw the cities where they live and visit, from the window of their homes, from a cafe, at a park, standing by a street corner... always on location, not from photos or memory.’

Five of the states from Malaysia has already joined in the mission, and Ipoh is one of them Urban Sketcher Ipoh. Urban Sketcher Ipoh sees itself to be a community to learn together, to share, to have joy and to record the best moments with its drawings to share with the next generations. Urban Sketcher Ipoh has also participate in many cultural and charity events which parallel with Urban Sketcher’s objectives.
