Welcome to the Symposium's blog

The countdown to the Symposium has started. It's exactly 116 days away, not even four months!

Are you ready? Have you booked your flight? Do you know what sketching gear you're going to pack? What places do you want to visit around the scenic Pacific Northwest of the United States?

This blog will be the central hub of information to help you prepare for the trip and get the most out of the Symposium, our first educational initiative as a nonprofit. Here you will find schedule details, interviews with the presenters, and insights about drawing and life in Portland, also known as the City of Roses.

As a starter, check the interactive map and see where local urban sketchers have already uncapped their pens and used up their watercolors. You can also follow links on the sidebar to learn about local attractions or public transportation.

We hope that, by the time the Symposium starts, participants will already know each other a little bit from the exchanges had on this blog. We will also be blogging the Symposium here for those who won't be able to come to Portland.

If you have any questions, leave a comment here or contact us directly. To register, check PNCA's website.

Looking forward to meeting you in Portland!

P.S.: Symposium poster available for download here in different sizes, including hi-res 11'x17" for printing purposes.
