Hospital Rooms at The Courtauld

The brand new Leon Kossoff Learning Centre will host two terms of Hospital Rooms art workshops.

Each artist has taken inspiration from The Courtauld’s collection and will lead a session that will go on to inform the artwork they create for the new Springfield Hospital which is being built in Tooting, London.

These workshops are free and aimed at anyone who has used mental health services, their friends, families and carers. No arts experience is necessary, and all materials and refreshments will be provided. Please let us know of any dietary requirements or access/transportation needs by emailing Jen Cheema on

All sessions at The Courtauld will be supported by a BSL interpreter. A second term will be announced in January 2022. We will be taking a rigorous approach to Covid asking participants to take a lateral flow test prior to attending, wearing masks, allowing social distancing and avoiding sharing materials.

These workshops have been generously supported by Colart and Winsor & Newton who have provided professional quality art materials.

This event has passed.
