Landmark: the 1,000-year-old Tower of London will feature as the backdrop to the evening art classes

Londoners have a unique chance to reclaim one of the city’s oldest landmarks during evening drawing classes at the Tower of London this autumn.

Tower after hours will see everyone from seasoned artists to keen newbies explore the iconic fortress through art.

The classes, which aim to exploit the atmospheric nature of the Tower at twilight, will encourage engagement with the beauty and grandeur of the 1,000-year-old World Heritage Site and its history.

We are calling for expressions of interest from partners to co-produce the workshops, which will take place once the hum of tourists have left.

With the right partner, the classes will become a permanent part of our offer – and a chance for young professionals, who may not have visited our sites, to learn about and engage with the Tower of London.

We previously ran drawing workshops at the Tower in October 2011 and 2012, around the time of the Big Draw, and found people were instantly inspired by the ambient setting.

For more information, see the expression of interest document.

To declare an interest, please email Zinta.jaunitis@hrp.org.uk or call 020 3166 6619.
