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

The format of the 2017 Summer Life Drawing Sessions will remain a self-directed exercise for professional artists wishing to work directly from observation of life-models. RHA Members will facilitate each day. Sessions are being offered on a weekly basis on Thursdays over five weeks, commencing on Thursday, 29th of June. Easels and boards are supplied and artists bring their own paper and preferred drawing or painting materials.
