at The V & A

For The Fundamentals of Drawing Part 1 at V & A and Perspectives, Building and Architecture at The V & A.

Where and when to meet.

Classes take place at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London (nearest tube South Kensington). Groups always meet in the corner of the Reception Foyer that is diagonally opposite from the Museum Meeting Point – at 10.15am .

The main reception foyer is just in from the main entrance to the Museum on Cromwell Rd.

Please try not to be late because you may have difficulty locating the group.

The Day Plan below is for “The Fundamentals of Drawing at The V & A” – the schedule differs slightly for the Architecture and Buildings course.

Incase you arrive late the group should be at the following locations at the following times.

10.15 – 10.30 Reception Foyer – for precise location see above
10.30 – 11.00 ( Intro Talk) in the Medieval and Renaissance galleries (Room 50A/50B)

3.00 -5.15 Drawing Session in Sculpture Gallery (Room 21)

Classes finish between 5.00 and 5.15pm


You need to bring your own sketchbook but all other materials including stools will be provided by us. It needs to be A3 and ring bound and ideally made from recycled paper such as the ARTWAY ENVIRO spiral bound Recycled Sketchbook in A3 which are made in the UK. To order click here.

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 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 reusable  water bottle to drink from during the drawing sessions as no other drinks are allowed in the galleries where we draw.


There is a break for lunch between 1.15pm and 2.15pm.
