Sketchout Drawing Classes in London Museums

Day Info

For The Fundamentals of Drawing Part 1 at V & A.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR INFO FOR SKETCHOUT COURSES AT OTHER MUSEUMS

Where and when to meet.

Drawing classes take place at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London (nearest tube South Kensington). We always meet in the Reception Foyer at the Museum Meeting Point – which is the same place as where the museum tours meet at 10.15am

Please try not to be late but if you are please call Rosa on 07883 068 325 to be directed to where we are.

Classes finish at 5.15pm

Materials

You need to bring your own sketchbook but all other materials including stools will be provided by us, I recommend that you invest in the largest sketch book you can, preferably A3, hardbacked and ringbound so you can fold it over and rest it comfortably on your knee. You can order one from Amazon below.

Stools are provided by the V&A.

I provide pencils, rubbers, sharpeners, pastels and water pens. If you would like to bring/use any other materials please feel free to do so but bear in mind that only dry materials are allowed within the V&A, no paints.

What to wear and bring

The V & A Museum can be a bit drafty so I suggest that you bring a couple of comfortable layers that won’t restrict you while you are drawing and its a good idea to bring a bottle of water to drink during the drawing sessions as no other drinks are allowed in the galleries where we draw.

Lunch 

Lunch takes place at L’Opera restaurant on Brompton Rd between 1.15pm and 2.15pm. Lunch is not included in the ticket price.

 The Fundamentals of Drawing Part 2 at Tate Britain.

Where and when to meet.

Classes take place at Tate Britain, Millbank, SW1P 4RG

The nearest tube is Pimlico. Please don’t get confused with Tate Modern!

We always meet on a bench in the corner of  the Sacler Octagon  at 10.15 this is just about in the middle of the Museum but is easy to get to from the front entrance- just walk in and keep walking down the centre of the museum until you get to it. See map below- our meeting place is the green dot.
