Sunday 26 May - Olivier Corner Gallery

 

On Sunday 26 May, Olivier from the Olivier Cornet Gallery at 3 Great Denmark Street will welcome us from 2pm and we will meet for drinks at 4pm at the Castle Hotel (there is a bar in the basement). There's an interesting exhibition at the gallery at the moment. And plenty of space to sketch in the hall, stairs and in the stockroom. Please be careful if you're using watercolours. No oil paints allowed.

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. 

 

From 4pm, we'll gather for a drink and to enjoy each other’s sketches at the Castle Hotel. A bunch of sketchers will magically appear.

 

 

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 are posting your sketch on Instagram please #dublinsketchers #urbansketchers


Hope to see you there!

Sketches from our sketchwalk, Sunday 5 May

5 hours, 6 locations, the sun was shining. Perfect day for a sketchwalk celebrating International Urban Sketchers Week. We followed in the footsteps of the Vikings and Anglo-Normans who built a wall around the city of Dublin. Not much of it is left. But there was so much to sketch all the same!
