Event Sponsored by:
The Royal Academy Schools is delighted to be holding the seventh RA Schools Annual Dinner and Auction. This exclusive black tie fundraising event will take place on 19 March 2013.
Chaired by Penny Lovell and supported by Keeper of the RA Schools, Eileen Cooper RA, this is one of the RA’s most successful and exciting fundraisers. Works in the live and silent auctions will be donated by graduates of the RA Schools and Royal Academicians. All funds raised go to the Schools Endowment Fund and support the running costs of the Schools, providing the students with bursaries to cover living expenses while they study.
The RA Schools is a small, independent, institution offering the only 3-year, full time postgraduate course in fine art in the UK. Run by artists for artists and admired world-wide as a centre of excellence, it is the UK’s oldest art school founded in 1768. Students across the globe apply to attend the post-graduate course.
