Dublin Sketchers get together every Sunday afternoon in Dublin to sketch. We go to a different place 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 drink and chat. We are part of the global Urban Sketchers community.
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.
From 4pm, we'll
gather for a coffee or Christmas drink to end the year, at the Forty Foot, Wetherspoon. Here is a link.
We could have an informal portrait / life drawing session were people can take a turn, sitting for short 5 - 7 minute poses while the rest draws.
If the weather is fine, you could draw Westland Row station, the oldest suburban railway station in the world, or Oscar Wilde's birthplace opposite. As we'll be in the coffee shop for a couple of hours, do remember to BUY a drink while you draw!
The session is from 2pm - 4pm roughly, and we'll have our usual gathering to check out each other's work in the same place.
If you haven't been before keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketch book and come and say hello. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are - it is Sunday after all!
