November Night Sketching

The nights are starting to get chilly, and what better way to embrace the cool November breeze than having an evening sketchwalk in a park?

This month, Urban Sketchers Philippines will do some relaxing night sketching at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City. We will start the session at 5pm sharp with a short meeting and a lecture on techniques.

MEETING PLACE: Caramia Gelateria, beside Amici

Please be there by 5pm so that we can begin the meeting-lecture right away while there's still some natural light. :)

***The works that will be produced on November 22 may be chosen as part of the Urban Sketchers Philippines exhibit in January.***

Let's catch (and sketch) the Lights and Sound show too! The show happens every 30 minutes starting 6pm.

We'll regroup at 8pm for show & tell, then have dinner together so we can discuss our plans for the next three months in detail.


  • Loose leaf acid-free drawing paper/board, maximum size 8.5"x11" (short bond size). Spring-bound sketchbooks are also okay, because the sheets can be torn off.
  • Your choice of materials, but keep in mind we will be sketching at night, so lots of lights and shadows. :)
  • A small flashlight/headlamp/LED light with a clip that can be attached to your sketchbook/pad/drawing board and allow you to see what you're doing.
  • Foldable seat/ a piece from an old tarp /something you can sit on.
  • Water and food to munch on while you're sketching (we'll be having dinner late).

We have a lot in store for Urban Sketchers in Philippines in the coming months, so we hope you can attend our November sketchwalk and dinner meeting!

Our agenda for the meeting:

  • December Sketchwalk
  • Urban Sketchers Philippines exhibit preparations (November to December)
  • New Year Party / Exhibit opening (January)
  • January Sketchwalk & Sketching Basics Workshop
  • January (ad hoc) sketchwalk: Papal Visit
