Urban Sketchers Barcelona

In search of the sketcher

“In search of the sketcher” is a tour around the neighbourhood of the Born in which the participants will find artists with whom they will be able to share the history of the place they are drawing, and that they invite to draw with them.

All the visitors of the Born CCM who want to participate in the Big Draw will receive a map and will be invited to go and find the sketchers who throughout the day (in three sessions of two hours in each place chosen by the organisation) will draw emblematic places of the neighbourhood.

The participants (kids and adults) are invited to draw these same points of view and they will be able to pick up from the Born CCM all the material they need.
At the end of the tour, the participants will be able to leave their drawings to form another giant mural with all the works of the day.
The drawings of the sketchers of the Association will be scanned and will form part of this temporary collective exhibition.

Urban Sketchers
Urban Sketchers is a non-profit making organisation with a network of groups all over the world with the aim of spreading drawing as a tool of expression and communication. In 2017 we are celebrating the tenth anniversary at a world level. (Amongst other activities, we have jointly organised with 30 cities from all over the world a course about the use of drawing to explain the stories that surround us in our city).

Nowadays, our community of artists gathers together between 80 and 200 people, depending on the event that is organised, and we can find amateurs and professionals with the aim of showing our daily activity, our cities, the stories that we can find there where we find "drawing to drawing".
