How to register for the Symposium

This Site Has Been Archived

You're browsing an archived site from the 2011 Urbansketchers Symposium. This site is no longer active. Login and comments have been turned off to prevent spam comments and user registrations. Feel free to look around, though. Don't forget to visit our main site at for all future Symposium plans as they develop.

Symposium registration opens Monday, March 28, at 5 p.m. GMT (You may use this time zone converter to calculate what time of the day that is where you live.) Here are some instructions to help you complete your registration successfully:

1. Create a site account

As part of the registration process, you will be asked for your login and password to the site. If you haven't created a site account yet, you will be asked to create one.

2. Why do I need a site account?

After your registration is completed, your site account will be upgraded and you'll be able to sign up for the sketching sessions of your choice where space is available (see How to sign up for workshops.) With your site account, you will also be able to interact with fellow participants, change your workshop choices at any time and start blogging on the site — you know us urban sketchers, we don't just draw the world, we share our sketches online and learn from each other!

3. Payment processing

At checkout, you will be directed to the Urban Sketchers Pay Pal page to select your method of payment. You may pay with credit card or use your Pay Pal account. You'll be redirected back to the Symposium site after you place your order.

4. Questions?

If you have questions before, during or after the registration process, please don't hesitate to contact us at and we'll try to answer your questions as soon as possible. We anticipate high demand, so the sooner you complete the registration, the sooner you can secure your spot and start looking forward to a great experience in Lisbon this summer.
