Sunday, 24th July - IMMA at Kilmainham


Hello Sketchers,

This Sunday, the 24th July, we go to the IMMA / Irish Museum of Modern Art.

There is a chance it will rain – in this case the museum interiors and the multitude of different exhibitions can offer some points of interest… In case the weather permits, the museum garden is a great place to be.
For information about the museum and exhibitions, see http://www.imma.ie/en/index.htm

We will draw and paint away from 2pm. We will meet at the Gallery Café at 4pm and have a chat, some nibbles and look at each other's work.

We are an informal gathering who meet every Sunday to share our love of sketching. We have fun exploring interesting places and events around Dublin. We always visit places that are free of charge and accessible by public transport. (You're welcome to suggest a location yourself if you want.)

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. Just have a sketch pad in your hand at 2pm and we'll spot you! (You need to bring your own drawing materials.)
Looking forward to seeing you at the weekend or in the near future.

See you there,

Dublin Sketchers

On Sunday the 26th June Dublin Sketchers are going to...Stephen's Green for the People's Art Exhibition.

The starting point at 2pm will be at the centre of the park itself.

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.

Here's a website of the exhibition http://www.peoplesart.ie

From 4pm, we'll get coffees from Butlers and go back to the park and fins a place in the grass or in a bench! (In case of bad weather conditions, we might have to look for shelter at Stephen Green Mall, just beside the park.
This is where Butlers is Butlers at graft on.


Hope to see you there!
