27th December and 3rd January


Dublin Sketchers are taking a break for 27th December and 3rd January before making plans for 2021.

If you are new to Dublin Sketchers - we normally get together on a Sunday afternoon somewhere around Dublin to sketch from 2-4pm, and meet at 4pm for a drink and to check out each other's work. In 2020, we’ve done things a bit differently. Check back here in the new year to see how we’ll be sketching in January.

Plan for Sun 20th December - meet in central Dublin or get festive from home


Due to popular demand, Dublin Sketchers are going to get together on Sun 20th December in central Dublin to sketch (location below). Because it gets dark early, we will meet at 2pm to say hello and show our sketches. You can choose to sketch before or after.

If you can't make it into the city, then why not stay local and sketch in your Dublin neighbourhood.

The theme for this week is Christmas decorations or take inspiration from a favourite yuletide song.

It goes without saying that everyone makes sure to keep 2 metres apart and follows government advice

on Covid-19.

Here's a link to the government guidelines 

https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/cf9b0d-new-public-health-measures-effective-now-to-prevent-further-spread-o/

Remember -

- Keep 2 metres apart.

- Don't touch other people's sketch books or share your sketching kit.

- If it's raining, we won't move indoors together. 

- the use of face coverings is now recommended in busy or crowded outdoor spaces where there is

significant congregation.

- Louise is the named organiser.

Because it worked so well last weekend, we’re going back to the same place.

So, at 2pm on Sunday 20th December Dublin Sketchers will meet in Merrion Square.

We will meet in the raised cobbled area opposite the Merrion Square entrance to the National Gallery of

Ireland.

The big red arrow below marks the spot. So long as it's warm enough and the weather holds,

we'll probably be there til around 3.30pm.

If it's set to rain all afternoon, we'll just sketch from home.



You might like to sketch before or after we get together at 2pm. Merrion Square has loads to offer in terms of sketching, or wander through the National Gallery of Ireland and do some flash sketching. Check out the Gallery’s current visitor guide HERE.

New to Dublin Sketchers? If you have not been out with Dublin Sketchers before, and are going to come out on 20th December, please email dublinsketchers @ gmail .com before hand to let us know. 

If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to dublinsketchers @ gmail .com or post it to the Dublin Sketchers Social WhatsApp group if you are on that. Please edit your image so that it is low res and properly oriented for posting to the website. If you're on Instagram, use #dublinsketchers #urbansketchers

We’re looking forward to seeing each other and each other’s sketches.

Dublin Sketchers has been happening for nearly 13 years. 

It keeps happening because everyone helps out. 

Once a year, folks who come out regularly put in €2 to pay for the website. 

If you are coming out on Sun 13th December, 

please throw €2 into the pot.

Sunday 13th December - sketching in Dublin city or on theme of candles & lights
