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

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


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.
