Enjoy an exclusive life drawing session for Friends and Academicians’ Room members.

Our much-loved life drawing sessions for Friends and Academicians’ Room members are back!

Whether you’re a regular participant who wants to hone their skills or you’re trying life drawing for the first time, these three-hour regular and immersive sessions, taught by expert teacher and practising artist Mick Kirkbride, are a wonderful way to experience life drawing in a supportive and friendly environment.

This event is open to Friends of the RA, RA250 Friends and RA250 Supporters, and members of the Academicians’ Room only.

Mick Kirkbride is a graduate of the RA Schools, and for many years he was Senior Lecturer in Visual Studies at the London College of Fashion. Mick has taught drawing at all levels, most recently as drawing tutor on a range of post-graduate specialisms at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
