Drawing Dublin is a unique chance to draw and learn about the many sculptures dotted around Dublin. As we draw we will learn about the subject of the statue - whether it is Constance Markievicz ( a revolutionary nationalist in 1916 & the first woman to be elected to the British house of commons in 1918) or Oscar Wilde (a poet & playwright) By the end of the workshop, you will have a notebook full of drawings and lots of new stories about Dublin's community, culture & history! Each participant will be given a sketchbook & pencil and will also have access to a whole host of other materials such as oil pastels, charcoal, pens & ink!
Hi! I'm Heather, an artist & lifelong Dubliner! I studied fine art (drawing & sculpture) in Dún Laoghaire college of art in the south of Dublin. Since then I have held art exhibitions in places as far flung as Hong Kong, Beijing, London, Italy and, of course, on home turf in Ireland. I love drawing and believe that we can all benefit from taking the time to sketch the world around us. Drawing Dublin will combine my passion for drawing with my local knowledge of the culture, history and art of Dublin. Come along to learn and draw at the same time!
Depending on the day (& the weather!), We will be exploring the statues in St. Stephen's Green, Merrion Square, The Natural History Museum, the National Museum and the National Gallery! If the weather is dry we will definitely be drawing outside!
最多可有6位年满18周岁的参与者参加。 Guests should be prepared to be outside for 2 hours.
You don't need to have any previous drawing experience - the workshop is for complete beginners and experts alike. :)
