Royal Cambrian Academy


The Royal Cambrian Academy has a busy and exciting education programme, including adult workshops, Drawing School for adults, Life Drawing, Children's Art School, college, Home Ed and community workshops and much more.

You can join varied artists and develop a diverse range of skills in our informal and practical art sessions, across a range of disciplines.  Academicians and other specialists in sculpture, drawing, textiles and painting regularly lead sessions at the RCA.  

Classes are suitable for all abilities including beginners, giving everyone an opportunity to develop their own creativity.
