About the RWA Drawing School

Catering for all levels and abilities, the school provides a supportive and inspiring environment in which to explore the possibilities of drawing, printing, painting and photography, amongst many other creative activities. 

The school offers a wide range of courses and workshops, with something to suit every skill level. Students benefit from full access to the RWA’s facilities, including free entrance to exhibitions during courses and workshops – a fantastic space to be inspired. 

The school began in 2007 with the aim of celebrating the importance and diversity of drawing. In 2011 it moved from Paintworks to the RWA and has continued to offer a diverse range of courses and workshops ever since.

RWA Friends are eligible for 5% discount on all Drawing School courses and workshops.
