Young people’s programme: drawing into painting

Workshop

● Fully booked

Saturday 1 February 2020
11am — 3pm

Painting at the RA

Experiment with traditional media using drawing to develop ideas for a finished painting at this free, full-day workshop for young people aged 15-19.

In this workshop led by artists Harry Baxter, develop ideas for creating new artworks using a variety of traditional media. Focusing on the journey from drawing to painting, you will work with charcoal, pen, ink and collage before translating ideas into a final painting using watercolour and gouache.

Harry Baxter divides his time between creating his own art and working as a freelance artist educator and lecturer. He graduated from The London City and Guilds Art School in 2001 with a degree in fine art painting. He has won travel scholarships to study the work of the Mexican Muralists and is an honorary member of the Worshipful Company of Painters and Stainers. His work has been exhibited in The Discerning Eye, The Rockwell Arts Space, The Denman Arts project and with the Le Gun arts collective. Since 2006 he has been teaching practical art-making workshops, leading gallery tours and lecturing at the Royal Academy of Arts.

Our new young people’s programme invites students from all backgrounds, aged 15 to 19, to take part in practical art workshops. Led by professional artists, these free, day-long sessions will take inspiration from our world class exhibition programme and the RA Collection, working with new materials and discussing different approaches to making art.
