First stop was the Red Town Sculpture Park where students dropped in and out of various galleries sketching and discussing the weird and wonderful sculptures and paintings.
Next was a brisk wander through the narrow lanes of Xizang Insect market. A fragrant and certainly exciting experience had by all! Thankfully nobody came home with any creepy crawlies and favoured the plants which have already been used in observational drawing.
Lastly was a leisurely stroll through the former Dongtai market for some photography. A fashion shoot was taking place which excited our students who also took the opportunity to take in and snap away at the exterior and interiors of these simple but impressive buildings.
