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 positive and negative space.

The aim of this session is to make drawings which are shape-orientated rather than subject-orientated. Customary perception (what we know based on assumption and visual memory) versus aesthetic perception (the shapes we can actually see in front of us, unique to our viewpoint). Students will be encouraged to evaluate negative space with equal scrutiny, recognising the wholeness and inter dependency of all parts of the subject. Poses will vary from short to more sustained.

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