Sunday 7th March - Ideas!?

Hey there, please post suggestions of places to go sketching in the comments of this post. Pat mentioned last week that the Collins Barracks have some of the National History's exhibits so that could be worth a visit. Also for all the martyrs who want to sketch outside, there's lots and lots of bricks :D

I would be interested in going to see the Natural History. It may be quiet this time of the year, hopefully!

Heya, we haven't been to Collins Barracks since May last year, it was really busy then.. lots of kiddies! Tom did a cool dinosaur sketch :D

Sounds good to me!

Count me in the Nat. History in Collins Barracks sounds good. Can't wait until they reopen the old one, that'll be a place to draw.

Also University Church on Stephens Green that Tracey originally suggested got back to us and are happy to have us visit at 2pm on Sunday 21st March.

Excellent, can't wait for that! Has been years since I was in the Church! There is also the Georgian building beside it that was restored in conjunction with UCD's History of Art Department Professor Alistair Rowan. Will try and see if it does open - but it would have to be another day!!

The Natural History Museum on Merrion Square is supposed to be reopening in April but it will probably be swarming with visitors for a while.

Newman House sounds good for another time, here is more, and some lovely sketches.

Yes, there's loads of bricks in that building; 1,002,466. I counted. I'm buying a special brick drawing pen...
