Amber Sausen, the President of Urban Sketchers welcomed the more than 500 Sketchers to the 8th International Urban Sketchers Symposium. Gabi Campanario, spoke of the founding of Urban Sketchers, its growth and where the movement is today. The audience was taking in every word, silent, except for the scratching of pens in sketchbooks. Best of all – Uma was sitting next to me!
