Urban Sketchers 城市速寫
等了又等，終於仲有不到一個星期就到我地尋找星洲之旅出發喇！今次我地會飛到去新加坡同Urban Sketchers Singapore 合作參與佢地o既Sketch walk，穿梭新加坡不同地區畫畫及透過活動認識多一點新加坡的歷史還有Sketchers的故事。
到底Urban Sketchers Singapore係一個咩組織呢？Urban Sketch – 『城市速寫』又係點樣架呢？我地希望去之前同大家作個介紹。其實小編蘇珊第一次接觸到『城市速寫』係因為團友豆腐人～豆腐人旅行時將自己既畫作製作明信片寄番黎比我地，當我地收到時感覺好特別，每一張都係獨一無二，憑藉豆腐人當時係個個景點所見之物加上自己既感覺畫上明信片上。而Urban Sketcher Singapore其實就係Urban Sketchers係亞洲既其中一個分支，我地香港都有屬於自己既Urban Sketchers Hong Kong分部架！每一個分部都各有各特色丶各自舉行Sketch Walk，但有一點是相同的就係Urban Sketchers將喜歡『城市速寫』既朋友集合一齊，大家互相交流繪畫技巧，分享故事，用畫訴說歷史。
Urban Sketchers每一年都會舉辦一個大型的速寫活動 – International Urban Sketchers Symposium。組織每年根據收到的計劃書中挑選設計最好的一個地方舉辦，邀請全球的速寫人到所選地方參與，佢地亦都會邀請專業的美術老師丶藝術家等等係活動舉行其間開設工作坊教授參加者繪畫的技巧，每年都吸引過百的速寫人參與。今年活動就會係Manchester舉辦，希望將會有一年會輪到香港啦！
小編蘇珊平時都係睇住豆腐人畫，今次都係第一次參與速寫活動，期待一星期後與新加坡既sketchers 見面同埋帶佢地既畫作番香港比大家欣賞！～ o(^。^)o
Time flies, finally our team will be arrived Singapore next week and start our Singapore sketch trip. We will join the sketch walk organized by Urban Sketchers Singapore and travel around the city to learn more history about Singapore and collect stories from sketchers.
So what kind of organization Urban Sketchers Singapore is? What is Urban Sketch? Our team would like to share more about the organization to you before we go to Singapore. I learn about Urban Sketch from my teammate – Tofu~ which she always send us the postcards with her drawings when she travelled to other countries. The postcards are really special as every card is unique as the drawing was different every time. Tofu drew the card with her feelings on the environment and the scenes she saw at that moment. Urban Sketcher Singapore is one of the Asia branches of Urban Sketchers and there has a Hong Kong Branch too! Every branch has their characteristic and they will organize different sketch walk on their own, however, the identical point is they gather all the people who like Urban Sketch to share drawing skills, stories and telling histories from their drawings.
The difference between Urban Sketch and the normal drawing is that Urban Sketchers only draw on location where they live and travel, they may draw the scene look out from the window of their homes, at an famous attraction, a station, or even a street corner and not limited to the use of the drawing tools and paint and you can be a Urban Sketcher even you have not learnt anything about drawing. Urban Sketchers won’t draw the scenes from photos or memories. Urban Sketching is an activity let people relax and enjoy the view of the city.
Urban Sketchers organize an International Urban Sketchers Symposium in different city once a year according to the best proposal received for that year and invite Sketchers from different countries to join the event. The organization will invite art lecturers, artists etc. to set up workshops or activities to teach people drawing skills and attract hundreds sketchers to join. This year the Symposium will be held at Manchester and hopefully the event could be held at Hong Kong someday in the future.
Urban Sketchers Manifesto:
- We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation.
- Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live and where we travel.
- Our drawings are a record of time and place.
- We are truthful to the scenes we witness.
- We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles.
- We support each other and draw together.
- We share our drawing online.
- We show the world, one drawing at a time
Our team is looking forward to meet the sketchers in Singapore and bring their sketch back and share to all of you!
