This class will be taking place on Zoom and a selection of materials will be provided by post in advance as outlined below. (If class is booked from the 12/02/21 or after the materials may not arrive in time for the first class) If your billing address is different from the address you want to have your materials delivered to, please email the materials address to drawingschool@rwa.org.uk. 

The course provides practical guidance covering a range of exercises aimed at improving composition, accuracy and observation, with a view to producing expressive and characterful drawings. Portraiture will be studied in the context of full-length figure drawing. Students will establish a solid foundation in drawing from a life model. For four of the five weeks, you will be drawing from either a male or female model. Suitable for all abilities.

We will only provide a refund if this is not possible e.g a Sculpture course. In the case that you have COVID-19 symptoms, you would not be able to attend the class, we can offer an RWA gift voucher.
