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. 

 

From 4pm, we'll gather for a drink and to enjoy each other’s sketches in TapHouse. 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 #dublinsketchers #urbansketchers

 

Hope to see you there!

Despite the public transport restrictions, a good few sketchers turned up at St Stephen's Green and in other parts of the city and country. The sun was shining and it was lovely to look at everyone's sketchbooks
