Our Shoreditch studios were the first home of the Royal Drawing School when it was founded as The Prince's Drawing School in 2000. The converted 19th-century warehouse houses our main campus and head office. All of our Drawing Year classes, forums and lectures, part of our Young Artists programme, and a large proportion of our drawing-based public courses, also run from here.
There are two spacious, fully equipped drawing studios on the fourth floor, with skylights, large windows, daylight lights and a reference art library. The School has also recently developed its ground floor into two new multi-purpose studio and exhibition spaces, and in the basement is our fully equipped intaglio print room.
The new Gallery Studios are kindly supported by Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem
The studios are based in the heart of East London’s art, design and fashion district. They are close to galleries such as White Cube, Rivington Place, Flowers East and the Whitechapel Art Gallery, as well as many artist-run spaces in Bethnal Green, Hoxton and Hackney.
The School at Shoreditch is fully accessible by wheelchair.
