Thank you for your donation | Raffle winners | Project extended

Thank you very much to everyone who has donated to LARA | Save our studio! LARA is so lucky to have such a supportive community of artists and art lovers.

As today was the original date for the project to finish your donations have now been drawn down. Thank you.

However, since we have several courses on the Crowdfunder we have decided to keep our project open until 15th December (our last day of term) so that people can keep signing up to these. Please do keep sharing our appeal with your friends and family!

The new term has started in LARA London and it's great to have the students drawing and painting in the new space. The feedback about the location, building and refit has been extremely positive. The studios are still a work in progress but if you would like to visit, to see what your generosity has helped to fund, we would be so happy to give you a tour.

And finally, congratulations to our Raffle winners!

The third prize of a two hour portrait drawing session with LARA model Robin George goes to Donor and LARA third year student Benjamin Smith.

The second prize of a New Wave Grand View palette goes to new student Beatrix Pastor.

And our first prize, a graphite drawing by internationally renowned artist Sam Kaprielov, goes to Stephanie Sheppard, one of our generous Crowdfunder Titanium Donors!
