Course Description

Our English and Art Course combines our highly popular General English Course with an exciting and creative course covering theoretical and practical approaches to art.

This programme is on 3 afternoons in the week and is made up of lectures and educational visits as well as your practical work. You will be encouraged to explore your creative potential by developing a range of painting and mixed media skills in response to various ideas and subject matter.

It is designed to stimulate your appreciation of the arts while providing a valuable opportunity to practise your English language skills with like-minded students and tutors.

As well as developing your personal and theoretical responses to the arts, you will explore a variety of themes and be introduced to a range of processes, styles and techniques. sketchbooks, photography and screen printing.


English & Art 

Along with regular tutorials, on this course you can experience a variety of different materials and techniques to help develop your independent interests in Art. These include:

Drawing & Painting



Illustration & Design

The tutor will provide some practical sessions and you will also develop work for a personal project on the theme of ‘Postcards from Brighton’

You will have access to the Art Store and next door class room during college hours, unless another class is using it. 

All students will receive a sketchbook and you are encouraged to use it all the time!


Sketchbooks should record your research, ideas and experiments. 

Always be on the lookout for things to inspire you. It could be anything from a scrap of rubbish, the texture of a dry leaf, the colours of stones on the beach to music and poetry. 

It’s also important to research other artists, look at their work and try out their styles and techniques.

Observational Drawing 

This is a good foundation or starting point for all artists. It is drawing what you see not what you think you see or from your imagination. It teaches us to analyse the world around us and develop skills that will help reveal your creativity.


Using different techniques for creating pattern, textiles and prints on paper. 

Design & Illustration Project

Develop ideas and designs throughout the course for your own project based on the theme ‘Postcards from Brighton’. 

We will look at different approaches to this theme and you will be asked to develop your own ideas by recording your experiences of the city and local research. 

Each student will have personal tutorials to review and support progress.

You could produce a collection of finished postcards/images/paintings or other work that illustrates aspects of your experiences of the city.


Each student will select some of their work and present it for a display at the end of term.


We have a basic selection of art materials which will be provided for the practical sessions.

You may need to buy some of your own materials.
