Artist, writer and broadcaster Dr Sarah Simblet will lead a detailed and artistic examination of the horse. Join us for a practical weekend course studying works from the RA’s historic teaching collection, as well as a recently reconstructed horse skeleton, to create compelling works and explore this complex subject matter.

Through both lectures and drawing sessions, artist Sarah Simblet leads the process of seeing and understanding the exterior form and inner beauty of the horse, with comparisons to the human body to help our understanding.

Participants draw from bones, plaster casts and great works of equestrian art held in the RA’s collection. The course includes a visit to the RA Library to be inspired by historical prints and drawings, as well as a guided sculpture tour and sketch walk through Mayfair.
