Let’s Sketch Chicago!

BOO! What are you afraid of?

Sunday, November 1
12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Hosted by Mary Jo Ernst and Urban Sketchers Chicago


Let's face it, we all have something holding us back creatively, 

  • it can be fear of what others will think,
  • nervous about trying a new type of medium or technique 
  • a complicated composition and perspective 

One of my biggest struggles is details, due to a short attention span I rarely take the time to do a detailed sketch. With my sketch in the event banner, the location that I was sketching required quite a bit of pattern and detail so I took the time and captured our trip to collect fossils.

This week we are facing our fears and taking the leap forward. 

If your biggest fear is posting your work, then here is some incentive! 

EVERYONE that posts their sketch on our group facebook page from now until Sunday, Nov 1, 5 pm will be entered into a raffle to win one 9x12” spiral bound sketchbook and a mini companion sketchbook generously donated by Legion Paper, our Sponsor Spotlight this week. Please check our facebook page to learn more about Legion.

The raffle winner will be chosen by random and Administrators are excluded from this giveaway.

See you at the virtual throwdown!

Please include #uskchicago and #uskathome on your posts to Facebook and Instagram
