One of our goals is to create a global network of sketchers, and one way we are doing that is by inviting you to contribute to a collaborative sketchbook of locations across the world with your art submissions. We are always looking to grow our community, and invite you to participate.
We’d love to see the world through your eyes.
All submissions must follow our values.
Even if English is not your first language, we will work with you to edit text for clarity if needed. You may also submit posts in other languages, and we will try to find volunteer translators to work with you.
For best reproduction of sketches, we recommend using a scanner for art submissions. If a scanner is not available, photograph the sketch and use photo-editing software as needed to make the image as sharp and bright as possible.
Limit photos of sketchers sketching.
Show us through drawings rather than photos of the places.
All accepted guest post submissions go through a collaborative editorial process.
We reserve the right not to include all the images originally submitted.
All submitted text may be edited for accuracy, grammar, and clarity.
Sketching alone on location is great, but it’s also fun to sketch with others. If you would like to meet up with others nearby, see if there’s a USk chapter in your area.
Our mission is to raise the artistic, storytelling, and educational value of on-location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people worldwide who draw on location where they live and travel.
