About the King’s College Art Rooms
The King's Art Rooms were first established in the late 1960s as studio space for artists-in-residence (notably Michael Craig Martin from 1970-72). The Rooms were originally known as the Art Centre and from the 1970s became a resource for art classes and for students to use.
The Rooms consist of two spaces. The Large Art Room is an empty flexible space with superb views of the Chapel. This is used for exhibitions, workshops, events and life drawing. The Small Art Room is used by King’s Members as a studio.
During the Covid-19 crisis, there is a Virtual Art Rooms with a growing series of videos to support simple warm-up activities for drawing. These are made for children of Members and Staff at King's but also might be enjoyed by adults who want to try drawing, perhaps for the first time for a long while! Please visit https://vimeo.com/showcase/6966992 and use the pass word Art Rooms to view.
