Chilly SoCal = Sketching in the Coffee Shop!

As the temperature dipped it seemed like a good idea to take the club into our local coffee shop.  The owner had one request.  Everyone buy at least one thing.  Teenagers?  After school?  No Problem!

Los Angeles Sketches

View from Pacific Pallisades
Mar Vista
Santa Monica

My name is Eric and I am in the 12th Grade. I love sketching buildings and different types of structures because it's one of my favorite things to do during my free time. I also draw because I am looking forward to studying in Urban Studies.

Welcome to the Animo High School Urban Sketchers group!

Animo Venice Charter High School is delighted to be the first High School blog to appear on the Urban Sketchers site.  Inspiring young sketchers to "see the world one drawing at a time."

We are hoping to eventually be joined by many high school or secondary school sketching groups around the world and in our own backyard of Los Angeles.
