Learning about art

Year-Round Creative Events for Life-Long Learning

The RWA offers a range of ways that you can participate and be inspired by art, both on site and across Bristol.

Whether through a workshop or course at the RWA Drawing School; a fascinating Art History Day School; free, fun activities for all the family in Easton and Redcliffe; training in creative thinking for your company, or an absorbing artist's talk, the RWA's year-round programme of creative events will inspire you and deepen your understanding and enjoyment of art.

The RWA is committed to supporting creative endeavour and nurturing artistic talent, for people from all backgrounds.

The RWA would like to thank Bristol City Council for their support for this work through the Openness funding stream. Scribble and Sketch events have also been supported by the Joan Hawkins Trust and Quartet Community Foundation.

Here are a selection of past events that we've put on for free for families and children of all ages.
