Other information

Urban sketching is the practice of on-location drawing where people develop their observational skills to make visual documentations of their surroundings. They use art mediums and techniques of their own choosing. Urban sketching does not necessarily mean sketching buildings; sketchers can draw or paint any scene that is naturally available at their chosen locations.

While this U3APP group is not officially affiliated with the global Urban Sketchers community, we will endeavour to maintain the spirit of their aim: To develop an inclusive and supportive group of sketchers who seek to “Show the world – one drawing at a time”.

This is an untutored group. Minuk and Margo will be the coordinators of sketching locations and communications. During the sessions, they will themselves be sketching rather than acting as art tutors.

NOTE: The first meeting is an important information session discussing communication apps and procedures, resources, sketching locations, urban sketching resources and weather contingency plans. The location of this first meeting will be announced closer to the date.

REQUIREMENTS: A smartphone, your own preferred art supplies, and your own equipment for staying comfortable when sketching outdoors.

COORDINATORS: Margo Anderson and Minuk Richards are both art enthusiasts who have a wide variety of art experiences and interests. They have recently discovered the joys of urban sketching and are keen to develop a community of like-minded people to share and explore this activity.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
