**Bhubaneswar:** In order to imbibe culture and heritage among youths and connect them with the ancient past of the glorious city ,the Bhubaneswar chapter of Urban Sketchers on Sunday started its maiden drawing on location from Old Town area of the City.
Next Sunday, the group has planned to sketch the banks of Bindusagar.
In their first attempt, the Urban Sketchers sketched the Mukteswar-Kedargouri temple complex. The sketches will be displayed on the precincts of the temple during a session titled ‘Show and Tell’. The sketches will be preserved and displayed for public viewing on special occasions.
Urban Sketchers have planned to sketch temples in the first phase. They will move to Unit I and Unit II areas, police stations, Gol Market and other prominent old buildings of the City at a later stage.
Urban sketchers are part of a global community which practises drawing on location every weekend in cities across the world.
There are 23 members in Urban Sketchers Group in Bhubaneswar. The members maintain a network of blogs and online groups where the drawings accompanied by stories are shared with co-members in other parts of the world.
