It's Your First Sketchcrawl?
All that is needed is something to draw on and something to draw with. Use any kind of media you would like. Pen, pencil, watercolour and sketch on a pad of paper, a clipboard, a sketchbook or anything you like.
The Urban Sketchers' Manifesto
The most important aspect of the urban sketchers manifesto is that we cherish our individual styles and we support each other and draw together.

Show the World Our Ottawa Sketches
At two points in the day we will gather and do a "show and tell". This is not mandatory. It's a great way of seeing each others interpretation of our surroundings and seeing the different styles.
Likewise, the point of a World Wide Sketchcrawl is to share our sketches with other cities participating in the event. There is a dedicated "Forum" on the official website (click this link: http://www.sketchcrawl.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=75) where you can share your sketches with other sketchcrawlers around the world!
Here are a few of the cities that have signed up:
Montréal, Québec, Canada
Los Angeles, California
San Francisco "City"
Stevens Point, Wisconsin
Zierikzee (The Netherlands)
Svolvaer, Lofoten Islands, Norway
San Vicente de la Barquera (Cantabria, Spain)
Taipei, Taiwon R.O.C.
Share your photos on the SketchCrawl Forum. If you are not sure how to do that, there are detailed instructions at this link: http://www.sketchcrawl.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=2224
