The new drawing classes will be held in the New Wing of Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA (adjacent to the North Block, home of The Courtauld Institute of Art).
On the first day of the course, students will have exclusive access to a selection of prints and drawings from The Courtauld’s collection of works on paper. A talk will be given by a member of the Courtauld’s Gallery staff .
Please meet, your tutors, Andy and Tom in The Courtauld’s main reception (second entrance on the left under the Strand Gate Arch) where the course will start with the print and drawings talk and a private viewing to provide inspiration for the start of your drawing term.

Appropriate for all levels from the beginner to the experienced.
Form, Tone and Space – Thursday
•To begin from the beginning – a life drawing course exploring ideas from mans earliest configuration made in caves to the present day in the magical attempt to depict the three dimensions onto a two dimensional surface.
