Urban Sketching

"I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing." - Vincent van Gogh

What is urban sketching?

It's the art of drawing whatever you see, wherever you are. Raleigh artist Scott Renk and his son, Jacob, show us how they approach this art form and share how you can do it, too!

Jacob says he likes drawing because "if you're ever mad or sad, you get to just sketch..and feel all better."

Where would you go to sketch? What would you sketch? Share your creations with us by either tagging us on Instagram @tincankids.
