We have a great range of studio and online Christmas courses for adults and children this winter, so there will be something creative to fit around everyone's busy holiday schedule. .
Each course is a one-week, intensive period of study and practice, allowing experienced or budding artists to immerse themselves in drawing, painting or printmaking. We have new courses as well as returning favourites to encourage you into the studio this winter. You can browse all our courses here: https://www.royaldrawingschool.org/courses/public-courses/
Highlights include the new course Drawing the Figure: The Studio as a Stage which will use theatrical set-ups to explore composition and the figure. Drawing, Painting and Materials: Internal Landscapes is an online course in which we will explore the domestic objects of everyday life around us, working from still life and surrealist traditions.
The Etching Week provides the opportunity to expand your skills in a supportive and directed environment, whilst new course Experimental Printmaking in the Life Room combines working from the model with print techniques to give students a new and unique way of responding to the human form.
Young Artists (10-15 yrs) can discover the art of the seasonal pantomime or explore the history of printmaking this Christmas through a one-day workshop on 11th December.
