Urban Sketchers — Tacoma:

This is a group for all sketchers who love to draw the area where they live, work, or visit. Urban Sketches are always done on location (not from a photo or from memory) while looking out a window at home, from a cafe, standing by a street-corner, or other convenient location. In our greater-Tacoma area, we are working to build a group of Urban Sketchers who regularly attend our outings and post their sketches on our Flickr site or on our Facebook site, in support of the mission and manifesto of the global Urban Sketchers movement.  The Urban Sketchers always welcome all who would enjoy sketching with the Urban Sketchers community. For sketch dates, locations and other information go to 

About Urban Sketchers, the movement: The original Urban Sketchers group was created in 2007 by Seattle Times journalist, Gabi Campanario, aka 'The Seattle Sketcher.' The Urban Sketchers blog began in 2008, and a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the art of on-location drawing began in 2009.
