USk Ax les Thermes
More than 30 sketchers went the 12th of August in Ax-les-Thermes (Pyrenees) for a first international USk meeting (Toulouse, Montpellier, Perpignan, Barcelona…)
Everything was perfectly orgazined. The locals welcomed us with a breakfast and distributed to everyone a badge, a map and a stamped watercolor sheet of paper. We were all invited to let one drawing in order to make a small exhibit.
Les sketchers se sont répandus dans les ruelles de la ville pendant toute la journée, entre établissements thermaux, vieux hôtels, villas arts déco et ruelles commerçantes. Nous avons tout de même pris le temps de nous retrouver autour d'un repas tout à fait convivial installé pour nous seuls sous la colonnade du Casino.
Then the sketchers went through the city heading for old buildings and nice spots to sketch. At noon, we were all invited to share a convivial meal especially prepared for us on the casino's terrace.
The afternoon was a little shorten by a forcasted storm and we all went to give our drawing and made the little exhibit. As a closing to this friendly day, the mayor and the organizers thanked the participants by offering them gifts (ski passes and free tickets to spa !)
Thank you Ax-animation, we hope to meet again here next year.
