Scetise 46- Slievenamon- the artic Sceitse

Ascending Slievenamon

The sketchers at mountains top

Walking off Slievenamon

Kilcash castle nearby

For our 46 sceitse, we went walking up Slievenamon in south Tipperary. Was a great day for it, a snow covered mountain! No greater mountain walking experience, feels like another world. Was a lovely day besides, even though the forecast was terrible.

Dublin Sceitse moved to April

We had to move our Dublin event to April as we were having trouble finding accommodation. So to celebrate our 4 year Anniversary Sceitse will be going to Dublin for 2 days of sketching!

The best news tho is, is with the change we were able to re-arrange dates so we could all go to Dr Sketchy's Ireland that night! So by day we will be sketching at UCD & the wax museum, by night we can carry on the sketch fun in Dr Sketchys and perhaps even have a little Drink and Draw in the pub afters!

Hopefully we will still see ye all in April:

Forest Sceitse- Killeagh Woods

On a quiet Sunday in March, Sceitse will be heading to the woods, to sit by the river, listen and sketch, to wander in old woods, watch the light play, and sketch, to gape at old ruins overgrown and sketch! Not only will this be a great relaxing day wandering around the scenic old estate woods of Killeagh, but we will also have a guided tour of the forest by a local guide! So come join us, all welcome, no matter the level:

Slievenamon Sceitse

Come February the 14th we return once more to sketch mountain walking, where we will be tackling the mythic Slievenamon, featured in stories Fionn Mac Cumhaill featured on the mountain. Should be a nice easy walk though with fantastic views of the mountains around it; Galtees, Knockmealdowns, Comeraghs, Blackstairs, mount Leinster. All welcome, no matter the level!

Sceitse 45- Limerick city

King Johsn castle

Sketching ontop the castle

St Marys cathedral and its lovely ornate medievaldoor

Hunt Museums collections, our last stop in the day
We spent the day wondering around Limerick city a week or so ago, Was a great day out, and we were even greeted by some local Limerick artists. Limerick is a city which has much to offer, we will have to go back at some stage!

Dublin 2 Day Sceitse

In March Sceitse will be in Dublin for 2 days of sketch madness. We will be paying a visit to UCD's Experimental archaeological centre, where we will be sketching various re- built structures from Irelands Ancient past and wandering around the wonderful wax worlds of Dublins wax museum in Temple Bar; from a whacky kids world, to chambers of HORROR, to much more besides.

Both the day after and that night will be filled with more sketch fun, as we sketch drink, sketch talk and sketch whatever else you can combine sketching with. Come join us as we sketch our way around Dublin! All welcome no matter the level. More here:

Limerick City Sceitse- Sceitse goes to Limerick!

In the coming weeks, Sceitse goes for the first time to Limerick and we are starting off in the centre of it, the city itself! Limerick city is a place decked in sketch spots, will be hard to fit even a portion of it in one day. The highlights include: the impressive King Johns Castle, the Medieval St Marys Cathedral (fancy windows galore!) and the Hunt Museum, with its impressive collection of anything from Egyptian artefacts to early medieval Irish crosses, from decorative crafts to artworks from the greats like Picasso.
