On Sunday 31st October, Dublin Sketchers will sketch around George Street Arcade from 2pm. If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at your arrival, 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 when we get together at 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.
Note that the market is open until 6PM so it should be moderately busy. As it is Halloween day it could be fun to sketch people in costumes or incorporate some spooky creatures in your drawings. Pics and history of this gorgeous building here: https://georgesstreetarcade.ie/gallery/
Rather than meeting in a pub or coffee shop, we'll gather outdoors to catch up and check out each other's work. At 4pm, we'll meet at Castle market (square outside George St Arcade where Grogan's Pub is). In case of rain cafés near include Simon's Place, The Market Bar, and many more. Benches and seats are hard to find in the area, so a folding chair comes handy.
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. See you there!
