'In establishing the School, it was our hope that we could provide a space in which expert teachers could help our students to see the world with greater clarity and sensitivity, whether that vision was ultimately expressed through painting, sculpture, illustration, animation, film or design. It is my firm belief that drawing is one of the most direct ways of engaging with the world and, like music and dance, needs to be taught and practised throughout an artist's life.

The Royal Drawing School [is] dedicated to ensuring that observational drawing remains an evolving and vital force in the arts, in perpetuity. I am determined that the Royal Drawing School will continue to grow as a specialist, educational resource of international standing and that it will remain open to all, regardless of background or circumstance.'
