Four Colman Getty and Four Change recently had the pleasure of meeting HRH The Prince of Wales at the opening of the postgraduate exhibition of the Royal Drawing School at Christie’s. His Royal Highness founded the school (previously called The Prince’s Drawing School), with artist Catherine Goodman in 2000, and often attends the end of year shows.
Since 2000 the school has grown from teaching 40 students in a small attic in East London, to over 1,000 students each week in five studio campuses across London. Four Colman Getty first worked with the School last year to make the announcement that it had been granted the Royal title with HM the Queen’s consent.
A second part of the show will open on Wednesday 2 December, featuring more than 300 drawing by 28 artists who come from a range of backgrounds including former soldier Doug Farthing and Geraint Evans, who used to work in a chip shop.
It’s a great opportunity to discover emerging talents and bag a bespoke Christmas present with a seal of Royal approval. Prices range from £80–2,500, and further details can be found at http://royaldrawingschool.org/lectures-events/drawing-year-201415-end-ye...
