An exclusive opportunity to enjoy monthly life-drawing sessions for Friends and Academicians’ Room members in the Sir Hugh Casson Room, designed to be both rewarding and fun. This month’s session concentrates on developing a visual shorthand.

Using a series of short poses, students will attempt to perceive the subject in its entirety using a limited number of marks.The aim is to distil the essence and attitude of a particular gesture. These poses will progressively increase in time, so that the initial gesture drawing is then further refined.

To book, please call 020 7300 8090. Friends of the RA can also book online.
