Ways of Drawing: Mini Drawing Marathon

Free Evening Drawing Marathon

Shoreditch studios: 5 – 7pm


To celebrate the release of the Royal Drawing School’s first book, Ways of Drawing: Artists’ Perspectives and Practices (Thames & Hudson), join us for a free Drawing Marathon, taking over our Shoreditch studios for one evening. Six courses will run from our three studios, each course taught by a member of Royal Drawing School faculty who contributed to the book. Bringing the book to life, the courses will reflect the three main sections of Ways of Drawing; Studio Space, Inner Space and Open Space. Students select two courses, each lasting 45 minutes with a 15 minute break in between.

This is a free event, but booking online is required. There are 60 spaces available. 

Once booked, we will contact everyone to receive class choices for the evening. Places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. You may choose two sessions out of the below, one from 5 - 5:45pm, then one from 6 - 6:45pm.
