Let's Sketch Auckland

March 22-23-24

Following on from New Plymouth in 2017 and Wellington 2018, Urban Sketchers Auckland announce a weekend of sketching.

We will kick the weekend off with a drink and draw on Friday evening, a chance for those who have arrived in Auckland early to catch up. We'll follow-up soon with a venue to be confirmed.

On Saturday morning we'll meet under Selwyn Muru's 'Waharoa' sculpture in Aotea Square at 9am where we'll begin the days sketchcrawl. A relaxed morning of sketching will take us through some of central Auckland's most sketchable places.

We'll make our way from Aotea Square up to the Auckland Art Gallery on Kitchener street, into Albert Park and eventually down to Takutai Square in Britomart for lunch. After lunch we'll make our way from Queens Wharf to the Viaduct, Wynyard Quarter finishing in Silo Park.

On Sunday we celebrate Auckland's place as South Pacific capital at the Pasifika Festival. Pasifika is a sketchers delight with pan Pacifc performance stages, arts and crafts on show and of course delicious food.

Stay posted with details and times to be confirmed.


  1. Thanks for the head's up! Sounds great. I probably wont be able to make it to Friday night as it's my partner's birthday, but Sat and Sun sound great! Let me know if I can help at all.

  2. I’m in akld a few times next mth but doesn’t coincide unfortunately. Have a good one.

  3. I'll be there, but working until late on Friday night, so my flight doesn't get in until 10am saturday. Looking forward to it.

  4. Hi Murray - me and my partner have our accommodation booked - yay! - so we're coming up. Just need to find some of those famous cheap flights, which is proving a bit harder! Really looking forward to the event and meeting Auckland sketchers. Cheers - Anne
