SYLLABUS: The Syllabus for the Beginners’ Course was approved by The Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools, our former patron, the late Peter Greenham RA.
EXAMPLES OF YOUR WORK: I am interested to see examples of your work, especially sketch books, as this will help assess what direction you need to take. Some painters bring photographs or slides of their work being easy to carry.
