The Prince's Drawing School, London:
The Prince's Drawing school, located in Shoreditch, in the heart of London's East End, is an educational charity dedicated to drawing. The aim of our school is to raise the standard and profile of drawing through teaching and practice, and to make it possible for every child with an aptitude for drawing to achieve their potential. Our faculty of over 35 practicing artists, work on the premise that drawing is a living, evolving language. Our well-lit studios and gallery are in a converted warehouse in Shoreditch, the heart of London’s East End creative community. Each term there is a series of public evening lectures and discussions, every spring a series of film evenings, and every summer a free drawing marathon.
The Postgraduate Programme is a unique one- or two-year programme of study to allow students to concentrate on drawing, as an end in itself or in relation to other areas of practice. The course lasts one academic year, with the possibility of an optional extension to two years. It offer students the opportunity to explore a wide range of drawing practice.
The culmination of the year is the end of year exhibition, held in the gallery space at the school building on Charlotte Road. The exhibition is held in October and is open to the public for a month.
We run 26 courses over each ten-week term, during the daytime Monday–Saturday and most evenings. Geared mainly for students with some experience of drawing, enrolment is open and you don’t need to submit a portfolio.
