Day one of the 5th International Urban Sketching Symposium found people - you guessed it - sketching! Check-in for the Symposium and late registration for the Sketching and Activities passes began in the afternoon, and later in the afternoon attendees took part in the first of several sketch crawls before the Welcome Reception at Casa da Cultura.
