Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket

America's famous seaside resorts

The world-famous summer resort islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are set just to the south of Cape Cod, off the US Atlantic seacoast. Both islands are a photographer’s dream. With stunning landscapes, beautiful beaches, historic lighthouses, charming storefronts, and cottages, plus colorful gardens.

All Virtual New York Urban Sketchers events are one session (10 am -12:30 pm EDT) held on Saturdays. For participants wanting to challenge themselves sketching more of a particular locality or theme, you are welcome to do the EXTENSION SKETCH PROJECT below:

*Please post your finished sketches to the USk NYC Facebook site.
