Welcome to my sketching-art-travel links repository site. I am Cecilia Evasco, a facilitator for the Virtual New York City Urban Sketchers group.  I created this site because participants from the virtual sketching events I help to facilitate on a weekly basis have asked me for access to the web sites I published for prior events.

In addition to listing previous event web sites, I would like to catalog here links on useful art tips and art techniques published in the bi-weekly newsletters by the New York City Urban Sketchers group.

Lastly, I would like to share some travel tips that I learned from sketching events and from my immediate family members who have traveled the world more so than most people.
