A community of artists have been giving us a different view of our cities, one drawing at a time. They're called Urban Sketchers and they're working in Seattle and communites around the globe. Artwork from 55 cities is featured in a new book, The Art of Urban Sketching. The book is edited by Gabriel Campanario, the Seattle Sketcher and founder of the Urban Sketchers group.
Gabriel and Gail Wong, coordinator of the Seattle Urban Sketchers group, joined Margaret to talk about their artwork, the booming urban sketcher community and how they chose the pictures that were included in the book. At the end of the segment, several sketchers in the audience showed off their artwork.
