Sunday 11 December - sketching Christmas around Grafton Street

This Sunday (11 December 2022), we will be sketching around the Grafton Street area, from 2pm. It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas, so let's sketch Christmas decorations and lights, shop windows, crowds, carol singers etc.

The forecast is for cold dry weather, so wrap up well. If you would rather be warm, you can sketch indoors at the Duke pub, Stephen's Green Shopping Centre or other cafés and pubs in the area.

We will meet together at the Duke pub on Duke Street from 4pm.

 

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm at The Duke pub.

Don't worry if you're late; most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

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.

Sunday 4 December - State Apartments at Dublin Castle

 

This Sunday (4 December 2022), we will be sketching at Dublin Castle, from 2pm.

The OPW have kindly agreed to give us free access to the State Apartments. You just need to go to the ticket desk at the entrance and say you're with Dublin Sketchers to get free access to this spectacular (and warm) indoors space.

Note that this is a tourist location, so make sure to pick a spot that is not in the way of the tours that are given at regular intervals.

Also, we have been asked to use DRY MEDIA ONLY. No watercolours or gouache. No bottles of ink. This is an opportunity to try out pens, pencils, markers that may have been languishing in your studio. If that's not an option for you, there is plenty to sketch outdoors.

We will meet together at the Long Hall pub on South Great Georges Street from 4pm.

Dublin Castle used to be at the heart of British rule in Ireland before independence. Lots of history there.

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm at The Long Hall.

Don't worry if you're late; most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

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.

27 Nov 2022: Capel Street


This Sunday (27 Nov 2022) let's take our sketchbooks to Capel Street, from 2pm.

We will meet together at The Boar’s Head from 4pm.

Capel Street is one of the most culturally diverse streets in Dublin, affording you to buy almost anything you need but didn’t know where to look. Earlier this year, it was made free of vehicles, making it the longest traffic-free and pedestrian street in Dublin. 

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm at The Boar’s Head🍺 ☕

Don't worry if you're late; most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc. 🎨

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.
