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. Other studio-based courses take place in the West London studios of collaborative partners. 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.

Summer School 2020
The ongoing uncertainties regarding social distancing measures mean that we are unable to offer our Summer School as planned. Courses for adults will now run online delivered through a combination of live and interactive specialist tuition, working from live models, and art historical resources with time for observational and imaginative work in the home studio. Bookings are now open.
