Royal Drawing School 2018

Pop-up Studio in The Rothesay Room

Suitable for all abilities. Age 8+

Pick up a pencil and draw!

Drawing can be direct, incisive, intimate, surprising, funny or confrontational. It is a primary language natural to all human beings. Everyone can draw. Drawing from observation encourages an active engagement with the visual world around us, connecting what we see with how we think, it can help us get our thoughts in order or open up the imaginative mind. So whether you’re 8 or 80 pick up a pencil and draw with us…

Sessions will be led by practising artists and tutors at the Royal Drawing School, supported by a model and technician.

Our drawing sessions are suitable for all abilities and all drawing materials are provided free of charge. Over the course of the weekend participants will have the opportunity to draw from life, working from a model and props in the studio, around the art collection in Dumfries
House as well as out and about in the woods and the gardens of the estate.

Spaces are limited so guarantee your place by booking through the Festival Box Office. Drop-in places will be available on the day on a first come first serve basis.
