The new academic year brings with it new studios, new venues and new courses as our programme evolves and develops. At Shoreditch, our main campus we’ve converted the third floor of this Victorian warehouse into a spacious new studio from which we will run drawing courses every day and evening with sculpture on a Saturday. The third floor studio adds to our existing attic drawing studios, printroom and gallery space on Charlotte Road, enabling us to expand our programme and welcome more students.

To launch the new studio we will be running a free three-day drawing marathon, Drawing and Feasting. Drawing from morning till night and sharing a communal themed supper together each evening. 

This year our West London programme runs from The London Sketch Club in Chelsea. This historic life room has been home to artists for over one hundred years, a beautiful 19th century studio with high vaulted ceilings and large north-facing windows providing natural light to work from. It is one of the very few original Victorian artists’ studios still in operation today. Daytime courses will run from this venue on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
