This little poem appears in this months magazine- thought it a good overview of what USK do!


In a bustling city, where stories unfold,

An Urban Sketcher, with sketchbook bold.

With pen in hand, and eyes so keen,

They capture the scenes, like none have seen.

On cobblestone streets, they take their stride,

Seeking beauty in every corner, far and wide.

They sketch the buildings, with lines so fine,

Breathing life into paper, like a rhythmic rhyme.

In parks and cafes, their subjects abound,

People laughing, streets alive with sound.

With quick strokes and vibrant hues,

They freeze moments in time, forever to peruse.

Through rainy days and sunny skies,

They unveil the city's secrets with their artful guise.

Every stroke tells a tale, a narrative so clear,

Urban Sketcher's magic, drawing us near.

From towering skyscrapers to quaint little lanes,

They capture the essence, where history remains.

Their sketches unfold, a visual delight,

Whispering stories, from morning till night.

So let's raise a toast to the Urban Sketcher's craft,

Their passion and talent, leaving us daft.

For in their drawings, we find a treasure,

A glimpse into life's urban splendor and measure.

Stoke Urban Sketchers.
