24th April National Gallery

On Sunday the 24th April Dublin Sketchers are going to the National Gallery. There is an exhibition of 10 Da Vinci sketches. If you are interested in this exhibition, the website says you should book a ticket at website below. The tickets are free but they want to control numbers.
There is also going to be  a march/parade going from Merrion Sq to O Connell st which starts at 2pm that is related to 1916. If the weather is nice and it's not too crowded, you could possibly try and draw people at that.

The starting point for sketching is at 2pm is the entrance of the gallery. Here are the websites www.nationalgallery.ie and http://www.reclaim1916.ie/news/
From 4pm, we'll gather for a coffee at the cafe of gallery. A bunch of people who look like sketchers will magically appear.Since it's 100 years since the proclamation, your optional challenge is to imagine the past so maybe draw people in clothes from the past.
Callout: If there are any members interested in picking the places for May, can you talk to me or Jessica on Sunday or email dublinsketchers@gmail.com.
If anyone is interested in drawing tomorrow Saurday 23rd, there is a drawing group who go drawing in various parts of the country. They will be in Dublin this weekend and have invited any interested members to join them. Tomorrow they are going to the  experimental archaeology centre in UCD. They are meeting at 12. There is a map of meeting point on their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/sceitse/    In the afternoon, they are planning on going to wax museum and they are planning on going to Dr Sketchys in the evening. Anyone interested in Dr Sketchys should book tickets in advance as it is the last  session for 6 months and there will be extra people there. http://www.drsketchysdublin.com/  They are planning on visiting a few places on Sunday but may join us for coffee. Look at their facebook page if you want more information.
I hope to see you on Sunday
Mandy
