Join two of the Royal Academy’s graduating artists, Will Pham and Sung Tieu, for a guided tour of the annual RA Schools Show, offering you a chance to explore the work of the next generation of artists.

The RA Schools accept a maximum of 17 students each year onto its three-year postgraduate fine art course and this annual show is a culmination of their time at the RA. A rare opportunity to meet some of the most talented artists working today, see a diverse selection of compelling artworks and exhibitions and experience the historic RA Schools’ studios (normally hidden from public view).

The RA Schools is the only institution in Europe to offer a free postgraduate programme in contemporary fine art. Former students include J.M.W. Turner, William Blake and John Everett Millais, all the way to Eddie Peake, Catherine Story, Matthew Darbyshire and Turner Prize nominee Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. Established in 1769 and still independent, it is the longest running art school in Britain and continues to fulfil its founding aim to support and train the next generation of artists.

The tour lasts for approximately 45 minutes.
