Sketchmaking Workshop

  • O Donoghue Centre and Theatre (map)

Róisín Curé will lead a sketching workshop around Nuns Island aimed at anyone with an interest in its rich mix of buildings, who would love to extend their knowledge through drawing. Róisín will explain how different ways of drawing  can be used to capture streetscapes, interior sketches and other such views of the city.

It is not just about making pictures though, but about observing and asking questions in order to understand what we see.

Guidance will be given on the use of drawing techniques and media, so no previous experience is necessary. 

Prizes will be awarded for the best sketch at the end of the tour!
