Architecture residential summer school

We are offering free places on an architectural drawing summer school taking place from Sunday 28 August to Friday 2 September 2022. This residential opportunity is for Year 12 students (or equivalent) and takes place in Bruton, Somerset.

The summer school has been offering a unique, fully-funded opportunity to students since 2016 and has been widely praised by attendees as providing an unrivalled insight into architecture and associated professions. We welcome applications from students with a keen interest in the visual environment, an inquisitive attitude and a positive approach to learning. The programme introduces students to architecture through a wide range of activities including drawing, discussion, practical experimentation and collaborative learning, with exercises set by leading thinkers in architectural education today.

Accommodation and catering is provided by Bruton School for Girls; the workshops will take place in the local area. Funding to cover public transport costs may be available.

The summer school is organised and funded by Drawing Matter, Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Kingston School of Art and Bruton School for Girls, with thanks to partner universities and sponsors.

This is a two stage process. First, you will need to complete and submit both the student and parent application forms. We will then contact you and ask you to digitally submit a maximum of four images demonstrating your work – this can be sketches, drawings, models, paintings, etc.

To apply please submit both forms before the deadline of Monday 2 May 2022:
