Tileyard London Sponsors Royal Academy Schools

go back

We are proud to announce that Tileyard London is sponsoring the Royal Academy Schools.

The RA Schools is a unique institution that provides a platform for some of the most promising artists in the world to continue their creative journey during a 3 year post graduate course, which is totally without charge and entirely funded through private donations.

Speaking of the sponsorship, Paul Kempe, owner and founder of Tileyard London, commented that “There is an obvious synergy with creatives within the art and music world and we recognise the critical role the Schools play in supporting the next generation of artists.” Tileyard is delighted to support both the Weston Studio programme and the RA Schools Annual Dinner and Auction on the 4th March 2020.

Founded in 1769, the RA Schools remains independent to this day. This independence enables the postgraduate programme to constantly adapt to the individual needs of each student. Discussion and debate is fuelled by a variety of lectures, artist talks, group critiques and tutorials given by leading contemporary artists, Royal Academicians, critics, writers and theorists.

Graduates of the RA Schools include Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Matthew Darbyshire, Eddie Peake, Anthony Caro RA, JMW Turner and William Blake.

The Weston Studio

The Weston Studio is a free to visit gallery displaying three curated installations by RA Schools students and graduates each year.

Royal Academy Schools Annual Dinner and Auction

The RA Schools annual dinner and auction is an exclusive fundraising event in celebration and in aid of the Royal Academy Schools. We have had a fabulous response from Tileyard community members who have supported Tileyard London’s sponsorship. We would like to thank Two Tribes Brewhouse & Taproom, Devialet and Tileyard Health and Wellness for their generous raffle prize donations.

You can purchase tickets for the event here.

The proceeds of this fundraising event go towards the RA Schools. The Royal Academy meets the cost of tuition fees for all students accepted onto the course, which means the RA Schools can offer places based on the creative potential of the candidates who apply – a principle upon which the Royal Academy Schools was founded in 1769.
