Demonstrate and Create workshop

© Justine Trickett

Join us at the RA on the second Saturday of every month for an artist-led taster workshop, focusing on a specific artistic technique each session.

Taking inspiration from RA founding member, Thomas Gainsborough, join us in this workshop to work from life and paint invented landscapes in watercolour.

In these monthly workshops, our artist will demonstrate artistic techniques relating to an object in the RA’s permanent Collection or to a specific historical architectural feature of the building. This will be followed by a short creative session, supported by volunteers, in which you can create your own work inspired by the technique.

To sign up look out for our volunteers in the Wohl Entrance Hall, Burlington Gardens from 1pm. These sessions are free but spaces are limited.
