Sunday 14 April at Harold's Cross

On Sunday 14th April Dublin Sketchers will sketch in the Harold's Cross area from 2PM.
Meet for drinks at McGowan's of Harold's Cross beside Harold's Cross park (North end) around 4pm

Dublin Sketchers have been invited to participate in the Harold's Cross Festival this year, 13th to the 19th May, where we will publicly display our work. It's not too late to join in the fun. We might even sketch in Harold's Cross mid-week some time between now and the festival. Remember you don't need to have a sketchbook full - even just a couple of sketches from Harold's Cross is enough to take part!

We are participating in this because it’s fun and it’s a celebration of the art of urban sketching. The pieces we exhibit will not be advertised for sale. But if you are happy to part with your artwork, make sure that your contact details are available (name and phone number on a label inside the sketchbook cover or the back of the frame) so any prospective buyer can contact you.

The Harold’s Cross Festival is a community event celebrating everything that is good about Harold’s Cross.  It’s a place steeped in history.
There is much to sketch in the Harold's Cross area including
1. The Park
2. Mount Jerome Cemetery
3. Mount Argus church, grotto, river and park
4. Harold's Cross Road, shops/business's etc
5. Leinster Road area, houses and small parks

Harold's Cross is well served by public transport; Dublin Bus routes 9, 16, 18, 49, 54a and 83 (83A) pass through it, according to Wikipedia

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2PM just chose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It’s a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink 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.
