SUNDAY 16th JUNE 2019 – BLOOMSDAY


Subject:  16th. June 2019



On Sunday the 16th of June Dublin Sketchers will sketch between the Garden of Remembrance and the park at Mountjoy Square, taking in that very Joycean route along Gardener Row/ Great Denmark Street and taking in the exhibition of notebooks by some of our members at the Olivier Cornet Gallery (3 Great Denmark Street, D.1) in honour of Bloomsday. The gallery will also have a performance which starts at 3pm and there will also be a cheese tasting!

From 4 o’clock, we will gather in the Old Music House for coffee and a chat. 
( Everywhere is likely to be busy but hopefully this will be just enough off the main drag) 

If the weather is truly terrible, you can also take refuge in the Hugh Lane Gallery. 
If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose 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.
A bunch of sketchers will magically appear. 


This week's optional challenge is to : Paint : Bloom related food items 


Hope to see you there!

Sketches from Iveagh Gardens today, Sunday June 9th. 2019

Today,  there was limited entry areas available into the Iveagh Gardens, due to work being done,   and as we entered through the little flower garden gate,  we were happy to avail of the unusual views afforded us there.
 We also welcomed some Urban Sketcher visitors from the USA.

The park is beautiful and hidden - the weather however is quite uncertain so I have asked for permission to sketch in the front hall of the NCH building : this is to be confirmed. At the worst case, we can gather earlier in the D2 cafe on Harcourt Street.
