On Sunday the 24 September Dublin Sketchers will meet up at the Icon Factory Aston Place Dublin 2 to sketch in the Icon Factory and round and about The Icon Walk and Temple Bar from 2pm and meet for coffee / pint / drinks at 4pm in Fitzsimmons Temple Bar.
The Icon Factory and Icon Walk are initiatives to improve the Temple Bar area. Aga, an artist at the Icon Factory, will be available to talk to people and has said that people may sketch in the studio. See www.iconfactorydublin.ie
The Icon Walk tells a story of Ireland and her artists written on the back streets of Temple Bar. There are many other sketching possibilities around too!
Fitzsimmons Temple Bar is also a good (especially in wet weather) sketching location. On the ground floor, the bar faces onto three streets and the river giving great perspectives!
If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone who looks like a sketcher at 2pm, just choose something to draw and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself. It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get know us over coffee from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

From 4pm, we'll gather for a coffee at Fitzsimmons Hotel Temple Bar.

This week's optional challenge is to hide someone famous in your sketch.
Hope to see you there!
