About Royal Drawing School

The Royal Drawing School is an independent, not-for-profit resource that aims to raise the standard and profile of drawing through teaching and practice. We are one of only a few institutions in the world offering in-depth, quality tuition in drawing from observation

The Royal Drawing School runs over 250 different full and part-time drawing courses each year for adults and children of all ages and abilities. 

Our courses are taught by a specialist faculty of over 75 practising artists, and we are committed to the continued training of future teachers of drawing.

All our courses are heavily subsidised, with a wide range of scholarships, bursaries and concessions making them accessible to all, regardless of background or circumstance.
