Make your mark with a gift to Urban Sketchers

When you give to Urban Sketchers, you’re making it possible for our growing community of Urban Sketchers across the globe to gather, draw, and share together.

Why Donate to USk, a Non-Profit Arts Organization?

Together with your support, we will expand to offer more collaborative events for Sketchers worldwide and reach wider audiences in an ever-changing world. Your donation today will make urban sketching accessible to more people.

Have you been inspired by urban sketching? Perhaps you’ve tried it yourself, or flipped through our Global Sketchbook. The community we’re building at Urban Sketchers has room for everyone—if you believe in the power of telling the story of our surroundings, now and into the future, please make your gift today.

How is my Donation used?

USk Reportage Grant

The USk Reportage Grant Program 2023 is now open to individual sketchers, chapters, and creative collaborators worldwide. Visual storytelling lies at the heart of the USk movement. Reportage is visual storytelling that focuses on contemporary events, telling their story through on-location drawings and a narrative formed by firsthand accounts, research and interviews. The program is designed to highlight the best examples of these efforts and to inspire new artist-reporters in our community.

Community Grants

USk chapters worldwide are invited to partner with a local community group (not-for-profit, school, art organization, city agency) to develop and implement a workshop for that group.

Regional Events Grant Program​

The USK Regional Event Grant Program will provide a official chapter team with up to $2,000 (USD) to promote urban sketching through to your chapter and connect the community of sketchers around your location.
