Drink and Draw Venue

The Dutch symposium team are very pleased to announce this year’s Symposium Drink and Draw venue.

Every year, the symposium has a place where sketchers from all over the world can meet after a long day of sketching and exploring the host city. Whether you have a symposium pass or not, it is a place where you can meet sketching friends, whom you already know for a long time but only had chance to talk to on social media. The ‘drink and draw’ location also offers you the opportunity to meet friends from previous symposiums.

We are happy to announce this year’s drink and draw location for the International Urban Sketchers Symposium in Amsterdam: Amstelhoeck.

Urban Sketchers Netherlands in front of Amstelhoeck

Amstelhoeck is a unique Grand Cafe located on the Amstel, a stone’s throw from our main venue, Zuiderkerk. The Grand Cafe has a large terrace with perhaps the best view of Amsterdam on the Amstel river, Munt Tower and typical canal houses. You can see many boats passing by. A perfect place to sketch, relax, have a drink and a meal.

10% discount with your symposium pass

As a special welcome to participants with a symposium pass, Amstelhoeck offers 10% discount off your bill if you show your symposium pass on symposium days (24-27 July 2019).

 “Tot ziens bij Amstelhoeck!”
