Sunday 14th Collins Barracks
Hi creative people,
On Sunday the 14th of May, Dublin Sketchers will sketch at the Museum of Decorative Arts and History at Collins Barracks and meet at 4pm in the cafe of the museum.
There are several exhibitions on at the museum but there is one that I think sounds interesting is called portrait of a century. Over the course of a year, a photographer took photos of people from Ireland or who had connections to the country but born in different years so you have a 1 year old, a 2 year old etc up to a 100 year old person. You might try sketching this or one of the other exhibitions in the museum.
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

Decorative-Arts-History There is parking at the museum which is pay or display. It is also beside the museum luas stop on the red line which is the one before Heuston if you are coming from the city centre. There is a cafe in the museum so we'll gather there at 4pm. A bunch of people who look like sketchers will appear.
Hope to see you there.
