Meet the Correspondent: AJ Tauber








Although she loves the visual arts, AJ considers herself more of a writer than anything else. Nonetheless, she is an enthusiastic cofounder of the regional Urban Sketchers group in Oʻahu (Hawaiʻi). She hopes to one day produce sketches that are as jaw-dropping as the ones regularly posted on the Urban Sketchers website.

Having a lifelong interest in anthropology, AJ is naturally drawn to the ‘storytelling’ aspect of sketching and values in particular the human connections that the pursuit documents and creates. She first encountered Urban Sketchers online in 2012 and later had an opportunity to mingle with fellow sketchers in Lyon, France, and California, USA (San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego, Davis). These occasions were memorable for the ease with which sketching allowed total strangers to immediately find common ground and communicate.

Thoroughly hooked, AJ would like to improve her sketching skills, as well as visit with other Urban Sketchers groups worldwide.

    Hi AJ,
    My name is Alan. This will be my first time attending one of your events. Since the map function wasn’t working on the meetup website, I was wondering if you could give me your cell number? My number is 489-2896. Mahalo.

      Hi Alan,

      We look forward to meeting you! I’ll text you my number closer to 0900 in case you are enjoying a restful Saturday morning. Feel free to text / call if you have trouble finding us. See you soon!

    Is the group still active? I will be visiting Oahu in 2021 and would like to sketch with the group. What colors should I pack for Hawaii-I work in watercolors.

      Hi Theresa! We definitely hope to be active in 2021. Please reach out as your trip draws near or keep an eye on the website. As for watercolor choices, the very basics seem to be popular here (even the paint sets that one would find at school). Hope to sketch with you at some point, AJ.
