Royal Academy Outreach

The RA Outreach programme gives school students across the UK the chance to take part in life drawing workshops to discover the important role that drawing can play in developing creativity. But what’s it like to be a life model and pose for these budding young artists?
Carol Holt has been a life model for 23 years. She regularly travels miles across England, modelling in many different schools. Carol also works at the RA in the Visitor Services team and is an actress, appearing both on the stage and on TV. Most recently she played a beautician in ‘Doctors’, and she can also be seen riding a tandem across the Yorkshire moors in a sponsor for ITV National Weather!
The Art & 3D Design students in Year 10, 11 & Sixth Form had a fabulous day, developing their drawing techniques with their amazing tutor Charlotte and model Carol. Thank you once again to the Royal Academy for an unforgettable experience.
The Life Drawing Class You Can Take at Home
Like Croydon High, The Royal Academy believes strongly in the importance of creativity.  Take a look at the first free life class below with the artist Jonathan Yeo and experience a little bit of what the girls experienced today.
