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. 

No need to sign up just turn up on the evening, though space is limited and places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. 

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 week's session will take place in the ground floor studio at Shoreditch with a tutor and clothed model.
