Sketching Sunday 25th

Ok lads and lassies - this Sunday I propose we go and visit..

The Chinese New Year Festival Carnival

Wolfe Tone Park, Jervis Street, Sunday 25th January 1pm – 6pm

It looks like a good day out - with "interactive art workshops, Chinese food and craft stalls, information booths, a well-being marquee and authentic Chines
e performances such as lion dances and martial arts displays." If it's too cold to wander out, we can pop into The Church which is nearby and also an interesting place to sketch in its own right.

Stephen is interested in visiting the Bodies Exhibition which is currently running in the Ambassador and looks really good - here's a link to review in the Irish Times. We might pop over to that in the evening - it's open until 8pm.

Another idea.. is the Lightwave Exhibition currently running in the Science Gallery - here's a link - might be worth popping into and it's on until 9pm.

So - a full day and plenty to sketch. All newcomers welcome, meet up at 1pm at the front door of The Church on Mary St. See you there!! (Sketch pads out if you're new or send a mail to to contact us beforehand if you like!)

Fantastic. See you there. Also the Chinese new year after party starts in the Church bar at six so we might wander in there... You know, to round the day off.

Great work Tracey Jessica and me will be there from one on. Looking forward to it. And if anyone is coming for the first time just look out for us we'll be drawing in sketchpads so just come up and say hello and after a bit of sketching we'll prob go for a drink in the Church bar at three pm
