Art Academy Students Host Drawing Class at London Bridge Station

Earlier this week, students on our Contemporary Portraiture programme staged a three-hour life drawing class on the lower concourse of London Bridge station. The class was hosted in partnership with Network Rail and Space and People, and was led by Contemporary Portraiture students Kate Linden and Ruth Swain. Members of the public joined in to try their hand at drawing our model, and a few even sat for complimentary charcoal portraits!

We’re thrilled that Suzon Lagarde, a student on our Contemporary Portraiture Diploma, recently featured on Sky Arts’ Portrait Artist of the Year 2019. In the first episode, Suzon painted actress Geraldine James OBE during a four-hour sitting (pictured).
