Sunday 9 August, Dublin Sketchers out on the streets.

On Sunday 9 August Dublin Sketchers will be out and about in central Dublin to sketch (location below) or sketch locally to you if you prefer.

It goes without saying that everyone makes sure to keep 2 metres apart and follows government advice on Covid-19.


Here's a link to the government guidelines

From 2pm on Sunday 9 August Dublin Sketchers will sketch around City Quay and Custom House Quay between Talbot Memorial Bridge and Seán O'Casey Bridge. There are stunning views from both sides of the Liffey. If you are new, get stuck in and keep your eye out for other people sketching and say "hello."


Rather than meeting in a pub or coffee shop, we'll gather outdoors to catch up and check out each other's work. At 4pm on Sun 9 August,  we'll gather near the arch beside the CHQ building, on the North side of the Liffey


Remember -


- Keep 2 metres apart.

- Don't touch other people's sketch books or share your sketching kit.

- If it's raining, we won't move indoors together. 

- Wear a face covering on public transport and in shops.


(There are bathrooms in the CHQ building, and some coffee shops that will hopefully be open on a Sunday)


If you can't make it into the city centre, then why not stay local and sketch in your Dublin neighbourhood. If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to dublinsketchers @ gmail .com or post it to the Dublin Sketchers Social WhatsApp group if you are on that. Please edit your image so that it is low res and properly oriented for posting to the website.


Please remember to keep things socially distant.


Looking forward to seeing you there.

From 2pm on Sunday 12th July Dublin Sketchers will converge around Merrion Square to sketch. If you are new, get stuck in and keep your eye out for other people sketching and say "hello."

If you are looking for a theme for the day, there's loads of great sculptures in the park, or sketch the lamp-posts (Merrion Square is the unofficial open air museum for Dublin lamp-posts through the years).

Rather than meeting in a pub or coffee shop at 4pm, we'll gather outdoors to catch up and check out each other's work. If it's raining, we won't move indoors together.

At 4pm on Sun 19th July, we'll gather on the grass in front of Dermot Morgan aka Father Ted's chair and space out in a large circle to show our sketches, keeping 2 metres apart. Please make the circle bigger if needed when you arrive.



- Don't touch other people's sketch books or share your sketching kit.
- Maybe bring something to sit on rather than using a bench (which might be in high demand).
- Arrange your own refreshments if you fancy it.
- The toilets in the National Gallery are open. There is a one way system in operation at the gallery: enter via Merrion Square and exit on Clare Street.
- If it's raining, we won't move indoors together.

If you can't make it into Merrion Square, then why not stay local and sketch in your Dublin neighbourhood. If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to dublinsketchers @ gmail .com or post it to the Dublin Sketchers Social WhatsApp group if you are on that.
