Sunday 17th September 2023 - George’s Street Arcade

On 17th of September, Dublin sketchers will be sketching around George’s Street Arcade from 2pm. Artists will then meet at The Long Hall (51 South Great George's Street, Dublin 2, D02 DV74) from 4pm to show each other their sketches.

George’s Street Arcade opened as South City Markets in 1881. It is a Victorian style red-bricked indoor market of stalls and stores with a unique atmosphere. It is a great place to sketch people as there are several cafés inside. The red brick exterior is stunning and also offers many sketching opportunities. 

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! Please bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to 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!
