Sorry, we are no longer accepting applications for this Life Drawing Session.

The Friday Self-Directed Life Drawing course offers an opportunity for professional artists and students to practice working directly from the live model in order to maintain a high skill level and practice drawing. These are self-directed sessions and there is an opportunity to work for extended day long poses and shorter gestural poses.


Artists interested in participating in this course should apply by completing the online application form.

  • A short CV (PDF documents only. Maximum file size 500K);
  • Up to three low resolution images of their work. Preferably recent representational works (JPG format only. Maximum file size 500K);
  • Please note that places on these courses are limited.


As part of the RHA School Access Programme, two free places on RHA School Workshops, Courses, Life-drawing sessions and Masterclasses will be offered. One to an artist currently enrolled at any of the third level art colleges in Ireland. The second free place will be offered to an artist of merit at any stage of their career. This additional free place has been made available through the generosity of an anonymous donor. Artists and art students who wish to be considered for these places should include a CV, three images of current practice and a cover letter providing a short statement indicating how they would benefit from attending any of the RHA School activities as part of their online application.

Queries about any of the RHA School classes, workshops or masterclasses should be forwarded to the Academy Co-ordinator, Kate McBride. Phone: 01-6612558 or email: kate@rhagallery.ie
