Your Life Is A Blank Canvas-  Fill It!

Urban Sketch LA is a narrative - it's a way to tell a story - your story and of those around you.

Drawing is a suspension of time. It's a pause button on the craziness of our lives.

To draw from life is to be present.

It's not about perfection or knowing "how".

It's about making space for discovery, creation and imagination.

What is it?

Urban Sketch LA is a pop-up art studio where we teach people how to record life here in Los Angeles through words and drawings.
