Sketching Sunday 25th Jan

Hey there,
Would anyone be interested in going to the Bodies exhibition this Sunday? http://bodiesdublin.com It's €20 in and it's unfortunately not Van Hagens' work but it's still a great sketching opportunity. Life drawing without the skin. As usual if anyone has any alternative suggestions please post them here.

There's an article in today's Irish Times about it - supposed to be a fantastic exhibition.. would love to go. Like anything though, reading - "it's not for the squeamish" just makes me wanna go all the more.. though I'll most like gawk!! €20 eh.. how about we go but not make it the sketching session? It's a bit steep and it may be better to have an alternative for those who don't want to go?

I was thinking along them lines but decided I'd leave it up there in the absence of alternative suggestions. I'd like to draw some of it anyway.

I'm not for the squeamish either ;)

hmmm well it's a one hour session by the looks of it and total cost of €23 if booking online, €3 convenience fee!!

It's open from 10am to 8pm - so we could go after sketching in town somewhere?

It sounds interesting on many levels - 20 euro is kinda steep but might go after the sketching session. but absolutely post it as an alternative.

What would people think of sketching and wandering around the Chinese New Year Festival -

Wolfe Tone Park
Jervis Street, Dublin 1
Sunday 25th January 1pm – 6pm
If cold, we could just go into the Church - can get coffee's etc. but it's a nice place to sketch if all else fails? Then wander over to the Bodies exhibition afterwards?

People in general, if I could be so bold, consider it a fantastic idea and worthy of it's own separate post ;)
