Dublin Sketchers get together every Sunday afternoon in Dublin to sketch. We go to a different place each week. Check here before hand to see where we are off to. Come along if you fancy it! We start sketching from 2pm and meet at 4pm for a drink and chat. We are part of the global Urban Sketchers community.
It's time we revisit the Hugh Lane - has been way too long! We will all meet at 2pm inside the main door and then spend our usual 2 hours sketching/painting - whatever takes your fancy. There's lots of information on the Gallery here: http://www.hughlane.ie/
If you haven't met up with us before, don't be shy - just have a sketchpad in your hand and you'll be spotted :-)
On Sunday we were at the Chinese New Year Festival in Meeting House Square. A few brave souls sketched outside for the session, while others sought warmth and congenial atmosphere in the Foam Cafe in the Italian Quarter. Here's sketches by Mary C, Ann G and Lorraine, and a photo of the Foam Cafe (who were very hospitable!).
This Sunday we will immerse ourselves in the culture and celebration of the Chinese New Year Festival - specifically the events in the Temple Bar Meeting House Square. The timetable is available here: http://www.cny.ie/headlines/4164C2AF84723C8EFD3461CBD7EADF2D
We will meet at our usual time of 2pm - inside the main entrance by the IFI of Meeting House Square, if you don't see the group straight away don't worry - just look for people with Sketchpads! Meet again at the same place at 4pm and decide from there where to go for coffees/drinks!
I'm home in Cork this weekend so will miss out again but I hope to catch you all sometime soon! All newcomers very welcome - just have a sketchpad in your hand and you will be recognised :)
