After a few proposed locations, we decided to start a series of school sketches, starting with St Teresa's school which was established in 1885. Since I had to tell my ex-teachers how many sketchers we were expecting, so that they can inform the school principal and the guards that we were coming during the weekend, I estimated about 8 sketchers. Therefore, we were pleasantly surprised with the turn out of 14 sketchers, including one new sketcher. Catherine, Gabrielle & I recalled going to school here, years ago. Quite a lot had changed since then. New covered walkways, new landscapes, new extension blocks, new outdoor furniture, new paint, etc.
We missed out on a group photo this round because the rain came suddenly & chased us away. All the close-up shots on artworks are courtesy of Jee. Here are photos Jee took of us sketching, after he completed his own sketch. View more of our activities on our Facebook Group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/USkKuching/
LoadingMy alma-mater, while I sat under the tree, infested with dropping tiny leaves, mosquitoes, sand flies, wasps & other bugs. (blots were unintentional. from swatting flies) Urban sketching really made me observe details that would usually miss the fleeting eye; like missing letters in the signages, an ex-mission school with Arabic words inscribed on the walls of the school hall, non-symmetrical decorative columns, etc. cool!
