English Through Art

English Through Art

Sara Downham-Lotto

‘We believe that learning English should be fun. Our stimulating, student-centred art activities help you to become immersed in the language to help you speak, think and even dream in English!’

Each summer a local language school brings a group of 10-15 teenage students of English to Arts Lab. Working with an artist who is a fully certified TEFL teacher, they spend the day drawing and painting in the studio and the surorunding gardens at Dartington. Seen more as an opportunity to have another ‘English’ experience, there is no expectation for paticipants to be budding artists. Away from the contraints of the classroom, they are able to communicate more naturally and with confidence without fear of making mistakes.
