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.

Spring Term 2021
Update 4th January 2021: Due to recent government guidance, our studios will be closed until we can welcome students back safely. We have moved in-person courses online until further notice and our Public Programme team will be in touch with students who have booked a studio-based, out of house or museum-based course. For those beginning courses towards the end of February, we will also offer these courses online, unless we are able to reopen the studios. Bookings are now open. Choose from a variety five or ten-week courses in drawing, printmaking and sculpture, online or in the studio.
