Yes, you read that correctly. There's a dog life drawing class happening in Dublin. 

It takes place on Thursday 22nd February in the A4 Sounds art studio just off Dorset Street.

Artists of all abilities are welcome with Eimhim McNamara showing attendees how to correctly sketch the furry models.

Tickets are €15 and we suggest you buy yours soon as this is sure to sell out.
