Friends and Academicians' Room members life drawing

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 focal point.

In this session, participants will create drawings that have active areas of information in focus, as well as areas that are out of focus.This creates a focal point and acts as a “home base”. The aim is to hold the viewer’s eye for a few moments in a particular area before it moves off to explore the rest of the drawing, therefore offering a more varied retinal experience.

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