Sketches from Print Museum.

Here are the sketches from the print museum. There was a fingerprint or dust on the lens of my camera which is why the pictures are slightly blurred in centre- I  didn't realise until I got home and I was transferring them to my computer.

Sunday 24th August - Kilmainham

On Sunday the 24th August Dublin Sketchers are going to Kilmainham.

If you're feeling flush, pay into the gaol and take your sketch pad and pencil on the tour! Otherwise, there's loads to explore and draw outside in the area. The new complex opposite the Gaol has some interesting architecture, or pop over the road and sketch the graves or the grounds of IMMA.  If we're plagued by rain, why not head into IMMA.

We'll meet at 2pm at the front entrance of the Gaol.

From 4pm, we'll gather for The Patriot Inn for a beverage and to check out each other's work.

The Patriot Inn is just outside the back arch of IMMA, near Kilmainham Gaol.

This week's optional challenge is to draw a sketch without taking your pencil/pen/brush off the page.

If you haven't been before keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketch book and come and say hello. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! 

Hope to see you there!

Sunday 17th August Iveagh Gardens

On Sunday the 17th August Dublin Sketchers are going to The Iveagh Gardens behind the National Concert Hall

We'll meet at 2pm at the angelic fountain in the middle (not the waterfall at the side!)

From 4pm, we'll gather for a coffee at The Bleeding Horse to share sketch books over some kind of liquid sustenance.

This week's optional challenge is to sketch one of the statues in the garden.

If you haven't been before keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketch book and come and say hello. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! 

Hope to see you there!

Sketches from Botanic Gardens

Soft day, drops of rain, plants taking human form... Yes, an afternoon out with Dublin Sketchers





Sunday 10th August Botanic Gardens

On Sunday the 10th August Dublin Sketchers are going to The Botanic Gardens. Picture all those beautiful botanical things lying waiting for you to sketch them.

We'll meet at 2pm at the main entrance.

If you haven't been before keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketch book and come and say hello. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! 

From 4pm, we'll gather The Gravediggers pub (also known as Kavanagh's, I think). This is easy to walk to from the Botanic Gardens: find the new gateway between the Botanic Gardens and Glasnevin Cemetery. Walk through it and follow the cemetery wall round to the left until you find a big imposing gateway. Go through it (yes, it's open) and you'll find a green with the pub on it

This week's optional challenge is to allow the plant life to take on human qualities.

A big thank you to Des for arranging the locations for July.

In August, John C is choosing where we are off to every Sunday!

helping out with making Dublin Sketchers Happen

Loads of people this year have helped to make the Dublin Sketchers happen! Each month, one person chooses the Sunday locations and spreads the word via email, this website and facebook.

If you'd like to contribute, we're looking for people to arrange locations for September and October. It's easy and great fun - it just takes about 15 minutes!

Do email dublinsketchers at gmail dot com if you want to help!

Sunday 3rd August - Tallaght

As we have an exhibition in Tallaght Library coming up, we thought that on Sunday 3rd August we'd go sketching in Tallaght. Meet outside the library at 2pm and back there again at 4pm to find a coffee shop. Rua Red coffee shop is closed, but there is one opposite, and Italian coffee shop, that is open on Sundays (I can't find the name on the google). It's near the Red Line Luas stop.

If you're new, just look out for friendly looking folk brandishing sketch pads and wander up and say hi. As its Sunday, we're not always the most timely bunch, so get stuck in with the drawing and find us all at 4pm!

SUNDAY 27 JULY - DUBLIN CASTLE (SAND SCULPTURES)

Sand Sculpture 2013

Hello all,

This Sunday we are going to meet at Dublin Castle.  It will be the opening day of their annual Sand Sculptures event which is always worth checking out.

We'll meet at the main entrance to Dublin Castle on Palace Street (beside Chez Max Restaurant) at 2pm.

We'll meet again at the same place at 4pm and decide where to go for coffee (maybe to the Dubh Linn Castle Cafe overlooking the castle gardens) where we can discuss our plans for an Sketcher's Exhibition in Tallaght Library in four weeks time.

Hope to see you there






SUNDAY 20 JULY - HERBERT PARK & THE RDS

 
This week we are going to meet at The Herbert Park Hotel in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. 
 
From there we can wander through Herbert Park or cross the bridge to sketch the RDS buildings.
 
We will meet at 2pm at the main entrance to the hotel.  If it's your first time, just keep a look out for people with sketchbooks - that's us
 
We'll meet again at 4pm at the same place for a coffee and a chat.
Hope to see you there.

From St Ann's Park

Lovely day out in St Ann's Park. It rained a little here and there, but most folks found some shelter to sketch. The cafe staff were really friendly, and didn't mind Carolina pouring her tea on her water colour paper! Lovely to see Phil from Pleine Air as well.
