Royal Drawing School
The Royal Drawing School presents drawings, prints and works on paper by 30 artists graduating from The Drawing Year, the School’s postgraduate programme. This selling exhibition showcases the next generation of fine artists, illustrators, designers and animators, who have spent the last year exploring their practices through drawing.
The Drawing Year was founded in 2000 as the School’s flagship programme, and offers a year of intensive study in drawing from observation, taught by a distinguished faculty. Each student receives a full scholarship and free studio space, allowing artists of all backgrounds to develop their paths in the creative industries.
Past graduates of The Drawing Year go on to work as fine artists, or have professional practices in illustration, animation, architecture, film and theatre design. Alumni have won high-profile awards including BP Portrait Award, Jerwood Drawing Prize (now the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize), Lynn-Painter Stainers Prize, the Evening Standard Contemporary Art Prize and ING Discerning Eye Prize. They have exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, and their work is included in major collections, such as Tate, the Royal Collection, British Museum and the V&A Museum.
