Urban Sketchers Elects New Executive Board and Advisory Board

Urban Sketchers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to raising the artistic, storytelling, and educational value of location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel.

On December 9, 2013,  the Urban Sketchers (USk) board of directors reorganized itself into two separate boards: the Executive Board and the Advisory Board.

The Executive Board consists of officers and committee directors who work together to carry out the business and mission of the organization on a day-to-day basis.

The Advisory Board is made up of people with a wide array of experience, knowledge, viewpoints and skills. This group, which includes many former members of the original USk Board, represents the international, multidisciplinary nature of USk. Its members act as advisors to the Executive Board and as advocates for USk’s mission.

With these teams in place, we look forward to a new year of “showing the world one drawing at time".
