Sunday the 23rd of April - Experience Japan Festival at Phoenix Park

 Some sketches from earlier today

On Sunday the 23rd of April, Dublin Sketchers are going to the Experience Japan Festival which is happening in the beautiful surrounds of Farmleigh in Phoenix Park. 
There is a shuttle bus that goes from Parkgate Street (the main entrance to the park, stop 7078) and leaves you at the festival. 



The starting point is at 2 pm besides the Martial Arts Stage located in the middle of the Festival Area. Here is a map of the Festival: Experience Japan map

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone who looks like a sketcher at 2 pm, just choose something to draw and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself.  It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get to know us over coffee from 4 pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

From 4 pm we'll gather for coffee at the Nancy Hands Pub & Restaurant  www.nancyhands.ie (it's very close to the Phoenix Park’s main entrance, on Parkgate street). We have tables booked for Dublin sketchers there. A bunch of people who look like Sketchers will magically appear.

Hope to see you there!

16th April (Easter Sunday) Dublin Sketchers at St Stephen's Green Park

On Sunday the 16th of April Dublin Sketchers will sketch in St Stephen's Green Park from 2pm and meet for coffee at 4pm in Stephen's Green Shopping Centre.



If the weather is fine, Stephen's Green Park has plenty to offer. If not so fine, the Food Village of Stephen's Green Shopping Centre has windows look down over the top of Grafton Street and St Stephen's Green. Remember to buy a drink or food if you are sitting there for a while!

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone who looks like a sketcher at 2pm, just choose something to draw and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself.  It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get know us over coffee 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.

Here's a website about the location http://ststephensgreenpark.ie/

From 4pm, we'll gather for a coffee upstairs in the Food Village of Stephen's Green Shopping Centre. The windows look down over the top of Grafton Street and St Stephen's Green. A bunch of people who look like sketchers will magically appear. As it's Easter weekend, it might be quieter than usual, but hopefully more than one person turn up.


Here's another website about the place to meet for coffee http://www.stephensgreen.com/dublin-shops/the-food-village/

This week's optional challenge is to incorporate spring or re-birth into your sketch.

Hope to see you there!

Sunday 9th of April -Chester Beatty Gallery

On Sunday the 9th of April Dublin Sketchers are going to the Chester Beatty Gallery























The starting point is at 2pm in the atrium of the Chester Beatty. 

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone who looks like a sketcher at 2pm, just choose something to draw and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself.  It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get to know us over coffee 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, since the café at the Chester Beatty is usually packed we'll gather for coffee at the Bull & Castle pub just up the road facing Christchurch. A bunch of people who look like sketchers will magically appear.


Hope to see you there!
