A big thank you to James who organised all the venues in February.  

We begin the month of March on Sunday with a visit to Ireland’s Oldest Pub - The Brazen Head.

We’ll meet at 2pm at the entrance to the Brazen Head.  Don’t worry if you’re late - just get stuck in and draw whatever takes you fancy.

Outside the Brazen Head there is a great view of the Four Courts, or you could stroll up to Cook Street and attempt to draw the Medieval City Walls.

At  4pm, we'll meet again at the same place for refreshments and a chat.   
If you haven't been before keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketch book and come and say hello.
