Sunday 20 August, 2017 - Liberty Park, Dublin 1



Hello everyone!  
We hope you are keeping well despite the crazy rain these days. 

For this Sunday we have partnered with the Treeline Project to offer you a new exciting sketching location: Liberty Park (Eileen McLoughlin Park), Foley Str., Dublin 1.  

As usual, we will meet there at 2pm and then have a coffee together later on.    

For the coffee-time we'll go to the Cleary's Pub on Amiens Street at 4pm. It's a pub with some interesting history (it was mentioned in a Michael Collins’ documentary as a pub where he held meetings. Images of Collins hang in the pub to this day.)   

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone who looks like a sketcher at 2pm, just choose something to draw and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.   

A bunch of people who look like sketchers will magically appear.    

Hope to see you there!

Sketches from Temple Bar

After a few wet Sundays, yesterday turned out to be dry and nice. We had a lot of fun sketching the colourful pubs and crowds around Temple Bar. One of the highlights of the day was seeing our very own sketcher Davey busking on the street! At least three sketchers did him a portrait to thank him for the great show :-)

Sketches from Portobello area

August in Ireland is not the driest month. But we won't let that spoil the fun. There were plenty of cafés and pubs in the neighbourhood, with lots of interesting visuals to keep us amused for the afternoon. Definitely an area we'd love to explore again on a dry day.

Welcome to new sketchers, Nadia and Marylène. We hope you enjoyed the outing despite the rain!

And thanks to the Eatyard for the shelter, delicious food, and friendly staff at Burn Baby Burn and The Box Burger!

Sketches from Griffith College and Noshington

Bit of a damp squib of a day, but we sketched between the showers .... most of us over hot beverages and tastey food in the very welcoming Noshington on the South Circular. We all had a shot at sketching each other, with much amusement along the way.

Some people might not have made it to Noshington cos of the rain, so do email in any sketches and we can put them up.

Sunday 30 July - Griffith College

This Sunday 30 July, Dublin Sketchers are meeting at Griffith College, South Circular Road, Dublin 8.  

Griffith College is located in the grounds of an old army barracks and contains many stone buildings to admire.  There are also many picturesque little streets to explore in the neighbourhood with some beautiful nineteenth century red-brick houses.

Our starting point is 2pm at the front entrance of the college. 

If you can’t find any sketchers at the beginning don’t worry … and if you’re late you won’t be the only one.  It’s Sunday afternoon and we’re not famous for our punctuality.  Just get started and keep your eyes open for other sketchers. 

We’ll meet again at 4pm and adjourn to Noshington Café (across the road from the college entrance) for coffee and a chat.  

If you haven't been before, keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketch book and come and say hello.  Dublin Sketcher’s is FREE – just bring your own drawing materials.


Hope to see you there!
