Dublin Sketchers 15th January IMMA from 2pm and IMMA coffee shop at 4pm

On Sunday the 15th of January Dublin Sketchers will sketch in the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Kilmainham from 2pm and meet for coffee in the IMMA coffee shop at 4pm.

PLEASE also read the next post about a TRIP to the ARAN ISLANDS....

The loose starting point is the foyer of IMMA.

This week's optional challenge is to incorporate a snippet of over-heard conversation in your sketch. People say great things when looking at modern art.

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. New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself.  It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get know us over coffee from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

Here's a website http://www.imma.ie/

From 4pm, we'll gather for a coffee at IMMA coffee shop in the basement. A bunch of people who look like sketchers will magically appear.

Hope to see you there!

So far we have 4 people interested in going to Inis Oirr 2nd to 5th February (3 nights). With a few more we will I'm sure get access at least to the island hostel.
I suppose you could look at this trip as 'Extreme Sketching' because of yhe time of year and the location but the rain coming in from the Atlantic often passes over the island and doesn't start until it reaches Connemara. The light at this time of the year is extraordinary with the natural grey limestone pavement merging with the sea and the sky. The journey will be in the spirit of those great explorer/sketchers of the past beautifully recorded in 'Journeys and Journals' (Abdelouahab & Lamazou) and 'Explorers' Sketchbooks (jones & Herbert) who were not put off by weather or location. It's a chance to see and record the loneliness and isolation of a place before the cuckoo comes in Spring bringing thousands of tourists. Pat
