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.
At the National Gallery, you will have the opportunity to see the short-listed entries for the Zurich Portrait Prize, with our very own Marie Lemen as one of the super-talented artists! And of course, there's lots more to sketch in all wings of the Gallery.

From 4pm, we'll gather for a drink and to enjoy each other’s sketches at the Lincoln's Inn pub where a table has been reserved. 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 hashtag #dublinsketchers (and #urbansketchers if you're sketching on location from direct observation).
Hope to see you there.
