On Sunday 29th September from 2pm,

There's great views down Grafton Street and over the park

We'll meet there at 4pm for drinks and to check out each other's sketchbooks.

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.
We're 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.

Hope to see you there!

A few sketches from Hughes bar


Apologies in the delay in posting these. I'm missing a few sketches and names, so email them to dublinsketchers@gmail.com and I'll add them here. A great evening of sketching and listening to pub conversations. Great fun sketching each other too.

Sunday 22nd September around Smithfield





On Sunday 22 September Dublin Sketchers will sketch around Smithfield
from 2pm and meet for drinks at 4pm in Costa Coffee
at the south end of the square near the Luas line.

Plenty of colour in the area -
pop into the Cobblestone Pub at the top of the
square to sketch the musicians or the moody smoking area,
heading into the Generator Hostel to capture the atmosphere,
check out the Lighthouse Cinema and tackle the great architecture and
angles or push a bit further afield to the grounds of St Michan's Church.

There's big windows in the coffee shop in Fresh to look out onto Smithfield square
and also great views from the Costa Coffee. Don't forget to drop a few sheckles
if you're sketching in a cafe / pub...

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.

Hope to see you there!
