Workshop Instructor: Marina Grechanik, Tel-Aviv (Israel)

Marina Grechanik was born in Belorussia and graduated from an art academy in Minsk. She now lives in Israel and has been working as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer for the last 15 years. Marina initiated the USk Israel group – regularly leading sketchcrawls, coordinating the Urban Sketchers Israel blog and organized and curated two group exhibitions. She planned and instructed several urban sketching workshops for children and adults, amongst them during USk Symposium in Barcelona and Singapore together with Ea Ejersbo, and was invited by Lisbon USk and to instruct a workshop and a master class.

Sketching is one of Marina’s passions. Everywhere she travels, she takes her sketchbook along with her. But the real essence of urban sketching for her is finding stories in everyday routines, and combining sketching with daily tasks like taking care of her children, working, or running errands. “A sketchbook and a simple pen – that is all you need to go on a journey every day. Drawing is seeing, so you just need to open your eyes wider and start to sketch!”
