Sunday 1st April - Natural History Museum at 2pm

Cork's Drink & Draw group are joining the Dublin Sketchers on Sunday 1st April. They asked us to set the location a few days earlier than normal, to help them with their logistics for the weekend. So, here we are......

This Sunday we're going to The Natural History Museum (Dead Zoo). The architecture of the building is great, and the animals don't move! If the weather is kind to us, venture out to Merrion Square, or even up Upper Mount Street, towards the Pepper Canister Church and beyond to the Grand Canal.

We'll meet at 2pm at the entrance to the Natural History Museum.

If you've not been before, you'll spot us easily as we'll be holding our sketch pads. Don't worry if you're late - just get stuck in with the drawing.

We'll meet again at 4pm at the entrance, and head round to the National Gallery cafe for a drink/cake and to take a gander at each other's sketch pads.

Remember, we're building up a collection of sketches for our exhibition in June, so if you want to work on loose leaf sheets, that would be great.

The website for the National Gallery is for coffee at 4pm.
