Aims & activities

To facilitate and promote the practice of drawing from observation; we believe that this is crucial for all aspects of visual learning, thinking and practice. We aim to fill a gap left by the steady erosion of observational drawing from the study of art in higher education and in schools by offering tuition and resources to art students, artists, children and the public.
