Architectural Drawing Summer School

Sat 24 Aug 2019, 10 am – Mon 26 Aug 2019, 10 am


Hauser & Wirth Somerset is delighted to be taking part in its third Architectural Summer School.
The 2019 Summer School is organised by the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust in association with Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Drawing Matter, Kingston School of Art, Queen’s University Belfast and Bruton School for Girls.


The course is a unique opportunity for A-Level students who have an interest in architecture and the built environment to learn more about the subject at a fully funded week-long summer school.


Throughout the week, students will explore in detail how the built environment has been shaped by countless interests over many generations. Through conversation with, and activities set by, leading practitioners in architectural education, they will gain valuable insight about how professional architects record what they see, how this information connects to the buildings they produce and how the process of drawing can be used to test and develop an idea.


Initiated by Robert Bargery of the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust and Níall Hobhouse of Drawing Matter the course has been developed in collaboration with Professor Andrew Clancy of Kingston School of Art, who will lead the lectures alongside a team of specialised tutors.


Applications to take part were submitted in May 2019.  The successful applicants will receive bed and board in the facilities of Bruton School for Girls, and will work in the town of Bruton, liaising intensively with educational staff at Hauser & Wirth Somerset.


A presentation and open review session will take place on Thursday 29 August 2019, 2 pm. This is a free event, open to the public.
