Mais uma colecção de esboços de Manchester

[By Shiho Nakaza in Manchester, UK] Here are some more sketches I made in Manchester outside of Urban Sketchers Symposium. (And what I’ve learned in the sketching workshops are on my blog post here.) What struck me the most when I first landed in Britain this summer are the clouds, which are ever-present and dramatically […]

Memórias de Manchester

[Por Marina Grechanik, em Manchester] Uma das maiores questões que me coloquei enquanto fazia as malas para a viagem do Manchester USk Symposium foi que caderno de esboços levar. Decidi preparar um caderno de esboços em acordeão - formato que adoro, mas que só uso em ocasiões especiais. Este formato permite contar histórias em continuações, como se o convidasse a [...]

Still jet-lagged but feeling wonderful!

[Paul Wang, Singapore] Still a little tired from my 3 weeks travel in UK but definitely warm and fuzzy inside. I had a wonderful time attending and teaching as one of the Manchester symposium’s workshop instructor. Very privileged to be able to meet with 48 workshop participants from around the world. We had to battle […]

Art Nouveau, tijolos e pontes em Manchester, USK Symposium

[por Lapin em Manchester, Reino Unido] Apaixonei-me totalmente por Manchester durante o simpósio, e a semana foi demasiado curta para apanhar no meu caderno de esboços todos os edifícios inspiradores à volta. Não sabia muito sobre Manchester antes, apenas que o meu bairro em Barcelona, Poblenou, se chamava Manchester espanhol, devido ao seu [...]

One pub, 13 takes

[by a collection of Symposium Sketchers] The Urban Sketchers Symposium in Manchester just wrapped up last week. And the hands-down winner of the most sketched building was a little pub that you just couldn’t miss: The interestingly colored (quite unusual in the city of red brick) Peveril of the Peak.  I asked those that were […]

Manchester United

(by Fred Lynch, near Boston, Massachusetts, USA) I fear that I sketch less than of anyone who attends Urban Sketchers symposiums. Everywhere I go, I see participants sketching and I think, should I be sketching now, and not walking? Not eating? It’s astounding to see so much sketching enthusiasm. As an art professor, I’m always […]

Manchester depois do simpósio.

 [Javier de Blas, symposium 2016 correspondent] After the symposium I have extended my stay for a couple of days, coming to live by the Castelfields canals. On Sunday there were still some sketchers at work by the area, Lapin, Gérar Michel and Nina Johanson among others. How fantastic days, relaxing and drawing on my own those […]

[By Kumi Matsukawa, symposium  correspondent in Manchester, UK] Symposium Day 4: W19: Richard Alomar- Manchester Green; Sketching Urban Green Space.

Simpósio de Manchester. Dia 4: Sketchwalk F, w18, w17, A6

 [By Javier de Blas, symposium 2016 correspondent] The Symposium last day was not the easyest to correspond, at least in my case.  Sketchwalk F was on an always seductive subject as is China Town. But as we all know chinesse ornaments are full of details. Paul Wang gave an interesting and very complete lesson on […]

Um enorme obrigado a Manchester!

Saturday night we wrapped up another Symposium. We appreciate everyone following along here on the Symposium blog; please continue to as we’ll have more recaps from Manchester and news about the 2017 Symposium. I’d like to give the biggest thank you to Simone Ridyard, the local host of the 2016 Symposium, whose incredible passion for […]
