On Sunday 12th June the Dublin Sketchers are going to the Irish Architectural Archives at 45 Merrion Square, from 2pm to 4pm.


We normally are a very flexible group, but since this time the place is being opened specially for us, we would like to encourage punctuality: please try to arrive on time so that the facilitator doesn't have to keep opening the door.
Also we've been told to use ONLY DRY MATERIALS for the day (pens and pencils and not paints). Thank you!! :)


Here's a website http://www.iarc.ie 


From 4pm, we'll gather for a coffee at the Doheny&Nesbitt old pub, in Baggot Street.
Here's a web of the place http://www.dohenyandnesbitts.ie


Hope to see you there!
