Thanks to the very nice people of the Schule für Gestaltung in Aarau I was able to switch off my computer for a couple of hours on Friday and go out to sketch in the sun with their students. The afternoon startet at the school, where I gave a brief presentation about Urban Sketching, and then we went downtown for a short sketchcrawl. The students seemed very motivated and many started sketching as we waited for the bus to the center. Despite being their first year at the school, it was obvious that many had been drawing for a long time. After the sketchcrawl we met in the garden of the museum Forum Schlossplatz, where we shared our sketches and were offered a nice aperitif. A luxury-sketchcrawl so to speak!
Besides sketching outside I had the chance to visit the current exhibition at the Forum Schlossplatz. It’s called Seismographic Sounds and explores sound, noise and alternative music from around the planet. It was fun to sketch while listening to all those exotic sounds.
Thanks again to the Schule für Gestaltung Argau and the Forum Schlossplatz for the great day.
