Dublin Sketchers are a loose collection who gather every Sunday afternoon in Dublin to sketch. We go to a different location each week. Check here on a Friday to see where we are off to. Come along if you fancy it! We start sketching from 2pm and meet at 4pm for a chat/coffee/drink. We are part of the global Urban Sketchers community.
It's time we revisit the Hugh Lane - has been way too long! We will all meet at 2pm inside the main door and then spend our usual 2 hours sketching/painting - whatever takes your fancy. There's lots of information on the Gallery here: http://www.hughlane.ie/
If you haven't met up with us before, don't be shy - just have a sketchpad in your hand and you'll be spotted :-)
On Sunday we were at the Chinese New Year Festival in Meeting House Square. A few brave souls sketched outside for the session, while others sought warmth and congenial atmosphere in the Foam Cafe in the Italian Quarter. Here's sketches by Mary C, Ann G and Lorraine, and a photo of the Foam Cafe (who were very hospitable!).
This Sunday we will immerse ourselves in the culture and celebration of the Chinese New Year Festival - specifically the events in the Temple Bar Meeting House Square. The timetable is available here: http://www.cny.ie/headlines/4164C2AF84723C8EFD3461CBD7EADF2D
We will meet at our usual time of 2pm - inside the main entrance by the IFI of Meeting House Square, if you don't see the group straight away don't worry - just look for people with Sketchpads! Meet again at the same place at 4pm and decide from there where to go for coffees/drinks!
I'm home in Cork this weekend so will miss out again but I hope to catch you all sometime soon! All newcomers very welcome - just have a sketchpad in your hand and you will be recognised :)
