Registration and the sale of passes for the Amsterdam Urban Sketchers Symposium 2019 has ended. All the 500 passes were sold out in less than 15 minutes.
On the Facebook page "USk Amsterdam 2019 International Symposium", there were happy people who managed to purchase the workshop passes, and there were also many disappointed people. I've been invited to make videos at the event so thankfully I don't have to compete with others for passes.
It's definitely frustrating if you're one of unlucky ones. If you have decided to buy a pass but did not get one, don't let that stop you from going to the symposium. I'm referring to those who would only go if they have a pass. Even if you're not attending any of the workshops and demos, I can assure you that if you go, it is still going to be an incredible and unforgettable experience.
Unlike the previous years where Sketching Passes were sold just so you can come and sketch along, this year, it's free for all and everyone is invited. You'll get to sketch with so many like-minded people, in fact, you'll see them everywhere on the street during the symposium days. The excitable energy can be felt in the air. So if you have time to spare, don't miss out on this chance.
I've arrived in Manchester! First thing I did was to go out looking for other sketchers! Here's the video below:
I'm surprised I was able to upload a video using my hotel's free WiFi which is so unstable! Gosh, looking at how slow the upload speed is, I'm not sure if I will be able to upload videos daily. I'll try my best.
The Urban Sketchers Symposium in Singapore has just ended yesterday. Time flies when you're having fun. It was terrific to see old friends and make new ones.
It has been a very inspiring experience to see so many people come together for the love of sketching. And it's great to see many who are so enthusiastic about learning from their instructors.
Over the past few days, I've made several videos and through them, I hope you can get a sense of what the symposium is like. The video below covers the last day. You can see all other videos at https://www.parkablogs.com/tags/usksingapore2015
