London by Urban Sketchers Open Exhibition. 8th-16th October. Mile End Park, Art Pavilion.

Urban Sketchers have a truly delightful exhibition running at the Art Pavilion in Mile End Park from now until the 16th October. It is open 11am to 6pm daily. With a large variety of styles and subjects and there will undoubtedly be something that catches your eye.

Tomorrow is our monthly litter pick 10-12 and I’m sure we’ll be popping in post-pick to have another gander.

Over 100 works of art will be on show, all drawn by urban sketchers, in London, on location. Some of the artwork will be for sale. In addition to the exhibits, there will be several urban sketching activities. You are welcome to join in any and all of them: 

  • Urban sketching demonstrations (see schedule below)
  • A large scale communal artwork (material for this will be provided), and
  • A typical Urban Sketchers London ‘sketchcrawl’. 

You’re free to watch the demonstrations, or bring your own art materials and draw along with the urban sketchers. 

Their monthly ‘sketchcrawl’ in Mile End Park will be on Saturday 15 October. They’ll start by meeting at the Art Pavilion at 11 am. See the sketchcrawl blog post for more details.  

There is no need to register for any of these activities. Just turn up with your art kit!
