The Drawing Gap Open Day

The Drawing Gap: A springboard to undergraduate study and creative careers for school leavers.

An intensive, skills-based, foundational course taught by the Royal Drawing School's prestigious faculty of contemporary fine artists in Shoreditch, London. An experience aimed at 18 - 23 year olds and gap year students in drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture, taught full-time over 3 months.

We would like to invite prospective students to join us for an online open day on Wednesday 10 August from 4pm. You will be able to take hear more about this new course and participate in a Q&A.  

Broaden your creative thinking and problem-solving skills through an immersive fine art course tailored to school leavers. Over one term, students will become part of a creative community and learn how drawing can be the starting point for all creative disciplines.
