Encounter architecture and develop your creative skills

Course dates: Monday 22 – Friday 26 July 10.30 – 17.00

Read the course outline.

Immerse yourself in a week-long investigation of the urban environment with unique access to the British Library and the RIBA buildings, and the collections they hold. We will explore and develop a wide range of artistic skills to help us understand architectural space and think about how we might reshape it in the future.

Alongside practical sessions of creative experimentation including bookbinding, drawing, photography and architectural model making, we will be supported by daily talks and show-and-tells from arts practitioners and curatorial staff at the RIBA and the British Library.

Whether you are contemplating a career in architecture or art, are already working in these fields, or just want to develop your creative approach and skills, this course will enable you the time, resources and expert guidance to refine your craft. Through guided exercises, using your sketchbook (which you will hand make on your first day) and group reflection, you’ll develop fresh perspectives on the built environment in London and expand your artistic skills set. 

This course takes place at RIBA, 66 Portland Place,  and the British Library, 96 Euston Road. Lunch is provided each day. Please see the course outline for details of the activities and locations for each day.
