The course consists of General English classes in the morning and English for Art and Design in the afternoon, for a total of 28 lessons per week.
The course provides a unique opportunity for students to learn the vocabulary and structures to discuss art history, graphic and interior design, fashion and photography, and to practise the language in context.
Different subjects such as: dance, drama, film, television, public art: murals and mosaics, architecture and sculpture can be incorporated into the timetable according to students' aims and interests. In addition, students can opt to include guided tours of San Francisco's most exciting galleries and museums and see some of the finest art collections in the world (although the price is not included in the fees). Professional artists and photographers may also give talks on their own work.
The course provides students with the opportunity to become involved in practical projects such as painting murals and producing exhibitions around the college. You will also receive a Certificate of Studies (in General English and Art and Design) upon completion of your course. Furthermore, our school has connections with Art and Design and Fashion colleges in San Francisco, and can arrange courses at these centres leading to vocational qualifications. Help and advice is available to those students wishing to start a career in the arts. Organised trips to college open days are also available.
