Taking part in a family workshop

Photo credit: Roy Matthews

Join us for a free family workshop all about architectural spaces, from the buildings by Italian architect Renzo Piano in our latest exhibition, to the historic and contemporary architecture of the Royal Academy.

How can architecture inspire and inform other art forms? Explore the buildings around you in this free family workshop all about experiencing space differently. Create costumes and constructions based on the architecture of our current exhibition, Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings. Renzo Piano’s work features in cities all over the world and in this exhibition 16 of his most important projects are explored in detail. We also take inspiration from spaces across the RA, led by artist Rosemary Maltezos.

Take a drawing tour of the RA to explore its contemporary and historic architecture, led by artist educator Jeanette Barnes, whose drawing of Renzo Piano’s London landmark, The Shard, was a joint winner of the Hugh Casson Drawing Prize during the 2013 RA Summer Exhibition.

All materials provided. Children must be accompanied at all times.
