On Sunday the 1st May Dublin Sketchers are going to the generator hostel in Smithfield. There will be a market on with live music, yoga and film screenings. There are a couple of pubs and cafes around that might be nice to sketch from if you find the hostel too busy.
The starting point at 2pm is at the entrance of the hostel.
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 the facebook event page for the market https://www.facebook.com/
From 4pm, we'll gather for a coffee at the cafe of the Lighthouse cinema which is across the square from the hostel. A bunch of people who look like sketchers will magically appear.If you need directions, the cinema has a list of buses etc that stop nearby.

This week's optional challenge is to create an image you'd imagine on a postcard since it's the start of the summer.
Hope to see you there!
