Drawing on Experience

Royal Drawing School

The Royal Drawing School was established in 2000 as the Prince's Drawing School by King Charles III (then the Prince of Wales), who was committed to raise the standard and profile of drawing as a route to innovation across fine art, filmmaking, product and game design, fashion, animation, and architecture. The school has grown into a key resource for anyone who wants to learn to draw, offering more than 350 drawing classes every week to more than 1,000 full- and part-time students of all ages and abilities.

As an independent educational organization, the school is committed to ensuring that talented students are able to benefit from its teaching, regardless of their financial circumstance. The school offers a variety of programs across two campuses in London that are taught by more than 75 practicing artists, and it collaborates with such institutions as the National Gallery, the British Museum and the Royal Academy. All programs, as well as international artist residency opportunities, are supported by a range of scholarships.
