Talk & Draw – Our Newest Language School Activity

At Blue Noun English Language School, we offer diverse activities for all our English language learners and our local community – bringing people together in new, social ways.  It’s all about fun immersive experiences for out guests on holiday. 

And we now have a drawing event happening every Sunday for our English learners to drop in on.

Read on to learn more about our language school drawing activity.

Would You Like to Join Talk & Draw?

Talk and Draw is a guided drawing class loosely covering content required for developing a portfolio for college or art school entry.

Lead language coach Ruth taught on art Foundations programmes in both the USA and France  – and loves sharing skills.

Work at your own pace and on your own project – or join in one of the day’s set-up still lives, media challenges, technique challenges and/or themes.

You Don’t Have to Be Good at Drawing

Our space is all about trying something new and different – and not being perfect.

We can squeeze in keen & experienced amateurs too.

Ultimately, we are hoping to provide a resource for young/early career artists needing a bit of portfolio coaching, so focusing on traditional drawing skills and techniques (because that is an Art School portfolio requirement).

Having said that, it’s flexible.

If you know what you want to work on and want some company… come join us.

Is it for You?

Maybe. We hope so, but please note that we are a self-styled alternative English language School and we curate the mix of people our English-learning guests meet.  

Please check out our Social Action Policy and decide if you are a good fit (in short, will you help make our language guests feel welcome and treat our property and guests with respect?).

If so, Blue Noun’s Talk & Draw Club is a great way of talking to locals, meeting new people and sharing art, stories and cultures in a very comfortable setting.
