WHAT IS SKETCHY TUESDAY?

Sketchy Tuesday is an urban sketching adventure. Gather with a group of architects, sketchers, designers and enthusiasts every Tuesday in September at noon to sketch the city and chat with a great community.

Grab your own lunch, sketchbook and drawing utensil of choice and meet us at one of the following off-the-beaten-path locations around San Francisco. 

Share your sketches with the group on our website and Instagram by using the hashtag #SketchyTuesday or emailing your drawings to nicole@arterrasf.com.

Every Tuesday at noon in September, a group of sketchers, architects, landscape architects, designers and enthusiasts will be getting together to sketch.

Sketchy Tuesday was created by Landscape Designer Alyssa Erickson at Arterra Landscape Architects, who invited the team to go outside, get "lunch together and sketch our surroundings in sketch books." From our first outing to Del Popolo Pizza at the Front Cafe, we were hooked and Sketchy Tuesday quickly became an office tradition. We feel like the weekly sketching has improved our drawing skills and livened up our design process and we've looked forward to the weekly event so much that we wanted to share the idea. We've partnered with the AIASF for their annual festival Architecture and the City to bring this free event to the public every Tuesday in September. We've also invited some great architects to be Special Guest Sketchers. We're planning on keeping this going once a month after September, so stay in touch!

So, grab your favorite lunch, sketchbook, pen/pencil/marker/carrot-dipped-in-ink and join us at one of the locations below!

Be sure to share your sketches by using the hashtag #SketchyTuesday on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, or by emailing your drawings to nicole@arterrasf.com. (Let us know if you want your sketch to be posted without your name.)

Can't make it? Throw your own Sketchy Tuesday! Gather your colleagues, friends or take a moment for yourself and sketch! Stay in touch with your fellow sketchers on this website and by sharing your sketches. If you'd like us to include your event on the site, send your information to nicole@arterrasf.com

LET'S KEEP THE ART OF SKETCHING ALIVE.
