Learn English and be inspired creatively through our unique Language and Art Programme – have your art displayed in a public Exhibition of Students’ Work in London.
London is at the centre of art innovation and design, with amazing museums, fashionable galleries, and many established and emerging artists. Our course aims to harness these elements to provide an engaging, immersive experience that will enhance your artistic skills and English language equally.
The course is led by a UAL graduate (University of Arts London) who has had her work exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts and is also a qualified English teacher with experience of teaching in Spain and Vietnam. The 2-week course features English lessons every morning and a variety of art activities each afternoon, covering drawing, water colour, acrylics and collage techniques as well as a genuine experience of the British art scene by visiting galleries, museums and famous London sights.
Art activities include:
- Sketching famous London sightseeing spots such as the London Eye or Houses of Parliament
- Trips to the Saatchi Gallery, National Gallery, and National Portrait Gallery
- A visit to UAL – University of Arts London
- An exhibition of the students’ works to the public with a guest appearance from a London-based artist
In addition to this, the course will include research into colour theory, perspective and different styles of art, (e.g. abstract, figurative, impressionist, realism, pop art) whilst also focusing on the history and techniques of British artists such as John Stezaker (collage), David Hockney (paint), Frank Auerbach (impasto) and Howard Hodgkins (abstract).
This course is designed for people who are interested in art, especially British artists and art techniques popular in the UK. It’s a fantastic idea for any international students who want to study art at a UK university or college because, in addition to giving you the vocabulary you will need for your fine art, art history or graphic design course, we will introduce you to the world-renowned University of Arts London (UAL).
The course is available to groups of ten or more students. We have a choice of teen groups from 12 to 17 and adult groups 18+.
