The RWA presents a programme of one-day Art History Day Schools delivered by experienced tutors and academics. These fascinating sessions often link in with RWA shows or key exhibitions in galleries elsewhere (Tate Britain and Tate Modern, for example). Each day school provides an introduction to a number of subjects, from the sculptures of Barbara Hepworth, to the theatrically inspired paintings of Laura Knight and Walter Sickert.
