First Thursdays at the Royal Drawing School

Every first Thursday of the month we provide a free drawing session, in collaboration with Time Out and the Whitechapel Gallery's First Thursdays

Drawing sessions run during term-time and the holidays, 6.30-9pm. 

Please note: Places are not bookable in advance and are allocated on the evening on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited and we apologise in advance that we cannot always accommodate everyone who arrives on the night.

Basic drawing materials such as charcoal and newsprint are provided free of charge, feel free to bring along any of your own materials and paper to draw with. 

Sessions may differ each month, some will be with a clothed or life model and others will take advantage of the vibrant London street life and take place out of house.

This month's session will take place out of house around East London with a tutor. Please meet at the studios in Shoreditch prior to the beginning of the session. Contingency plans will be made for poor weather.
