Sunday 3rd November | Natural History Museum

On Sunday the 3rd of November Dublin Sketchers will sketch at the Natural History Museum, on Merrion St Upper (D2), from 2pm and meet for drinks at 4pm in McGrattans Café Bar.

The Natural History Museum is a great spot to get sketching something a bit more unusual for a city: also known as 'The Dead Zoo' (sadly), this place boasts about 10,000 exhibits from the natural world. If you are not too much interested in drawing animals, then you might concentrate on the ‘cabinet-style’ building and get some more architecture on that sketchbook :).

Should the weather be kind to us, this is a handy location to go sketching in Merrion Square Park or just to enjoy a sketching-promenade in that lovely area.

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.

Here's a website about the location:

From 4pm, we'll gather for a drink at McGrattans Café Bar, just across the Natural History Museum at 76 Fitzwilliam Ln. Here, a bunch of sketchers will magically appear.

Hope to see you all there!
