Call for Applications: 2022 Architectural Drawing Summer School

A great opportunity for A-level students to gain a deeper knowledge of architecture with some of the leading lecturers in the UK.

We are thrilled to continue our partnership alongside Drawing Matter, Kingston School of Art and Bruton School for Girls, with the sixth iteration of our Architectural Drawing Summer School. Taking place Monday 29 August – Friday 2 September 2022, the program has been widely praised by all students as providing an unrivalled insight into architecture and the associated professions.

The summer school introduces students to architecture through a wide range of activities including drawing, discussion, practical experimentation and collaborative learning. Students will be exposed to conversations and exercises set by leading thinkers in architectural education today, as well as the opportunity to network with other students.

This is a free learning opportunity for all applicants, including accommodation and meals for the week. Workshops will take place at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Drawing Matter and in Bruton. If students are unable to attend in person, distance learning content will be provided.

We are looking for intelligent and communicative young people with a keen interest in the visual environment, an inquisitive attitude and a positive approach to learning. Our intention is to give young people an opportunity, at what could be a pivotal point in their intellectual development, an understanding of the built environment and access to insights and skills that are not taught in secondary schools.
