Join our weekly online art club! It’s designed for everyone (beginners and practising artists) and we’ll focus on a new technique each week. Booking essential.

This is an online event and will be held as a Zoom webinar. All you’ll need to participate is a pencil, paper and rubber.

After a difficult year, we want to celebrate our community in this series of free, live-streamed workshops. Join our artist tutors in the Royal Academy for the opportunity to be inspired and get creative, using drawing materials you’ll have at home.

Each Saturday morning session will be led by a different artist, and you’re welcome to drop into as many or as few as you’d like. All you’ll need is a pencil, paper and rubber, with each session exploring different techniques and styles.

Drawing is a practice both universal and ancient. These workshops – using the most basic of materials, pencil and paper – reconnect us with the present moment. You’ll learn to relate your mark-making to both your surroundings and your imagination, rendering your thoughts, feelings and ideas on paper.

You’ll be taught drawing techniques inspired by RA collections and exhibitions, as well as working from life models and objects from around your house. Sessions are suitable for all levels, so whether you’re a seasoned sketcher or a complete novice, you’ll find activities to inspire you.

These workshops will be delivered via a live webinar. Book your free tickets using the buttons below, and you’ll be emailed your unique link to each workshop session.

Please note: participants won’t be on camera, but will have a chance to share their work with us by posting it on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #RASketchClub or on our Facebook Group.
