Drawing Attention #3 > New ad space and sketcher updates

In this installment of Drawing Attention, our occasional posts with news about the urban sketchers community, we'll start with announcing the availability of ad space on the main Urban Sketchers site.

We became a nonprofit in December of 2009 with the mission of fostering the art of on-location drawing and connecting sketchers around the world. An initial round of fundraising brought in enough donations to cover the filing fees associated with establishing nonprofit status -- and for that, we're grateful.

Going forward, there's only so much we can do to fullfill our mission with empty pockets. To raise funds that we can put back into our community via scholarships and grants, we are now seeking sponsors to advertise on the blog. To place an ad, advertisers can click where it says "Support Urban Sketchers by advertising here" on the sidebar and follow the instructions. (We will keep ad content focused on the artistic nature of our community, making sure ads complement the content you see on the blog and have value to our readers.)

And now, on with some news from our members and correspondents!
Thanks for visiting and happy sketching,

Gabi Campanario
