Public courses

We offer daytime and evening courses in drawing suitable for all levels, from complete beginners to experienced artists and creative professionals. Our Shoreditch studios in East London are at the heart of the School providing studio-based courses in our converted Victorian warehouse. We now run online courses for those unable to attend our studios. Out of house courses take drawing out of the studio to locations across London in museums, galleries and in the city’s streets and green spaces. Read more about the programme here. All of our course rates are subsidised and we also offer a comprehensive concessions scheme. All courses are for students aged 18 and over unless otherwise stated.

Easter 2021

One-week online courses in drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture in the Easter holidays start from 12 April. Due to government guidance, our studios will be closed and all courses delivered online until we can welcome students back to our studios safely.
