10x10 Fall 2018 Workshops

Urban Sketchers Seattle – Fall 2018 10x10 Workshop Program

Seattle’s USk 10x10 workshop program was so overwhelmingly successful in the Spring that we have decided to continue it through the Fall! We are bringing back your favorite instructors from Spring – Steve Reddy, David Chamness, Stephanie Bower, Jane Wingfield, Andika Murandi, Gabi Campanario, Michele Cooper, Sue Heston and Anita Lehmann! In addition, Gail Wong, who taught in the 10x10 program last year, is returning with two sessions, and we have a new instructor, Eleanor Doughty!

The 10x10 workshop program is a worldwide initiative to offer educational workshops wherever sketchers live. Launched in celebration of Urban Sketchers’ 10th anniversary in 2017, the program brings a variety of courses on urban sketching techniques taught by talented local instructors in their home cities.

Registration begins Sunday, June 24, 2018, 9 a.m. The cost for each 3½-hour workshop is $60 plus processing fees. Registration will be processed by the event management website, Brown Paper Ticket. For workshop details and other information, please read the FAQ and download the program PDF.

Important: The email address you provide when you register through Brown Paper Ticket is our only means of communicating with you. We need your current email so that your instructor can contact you with information about where to meet, possible last-minute changes, or other updates. If you prefer that we use a different email address for communication purposes, please contact us at
