Notes on Eligibility

Notes on Question 01

Sketchbook English is a combination of art making AND English. It is designed for professional makers. You need to be an experienced maker with TRAINING in art & design OR in creative thinking to benefit from this course.


Sketchbook English is an art school-level art course wrapped up in an ESL English language course.



Notes on Question 02

Sketchbook English is designed to develop English from lower-intermediate (B1) towards upper-intermediate (B2) OR (B2) towards lower advanced level (C1).

This means that it assumes you have some knowledge of past tense, present perfect, and conditionals. (Sketchbook English doesn’t introduce this grammar but it practices it).

The outcomes will be increased fluency and comprehension of your area of specialisation (art & design).

Find out about proficiency levels here.



Notes on Question 03

Sketchbook English is a 12-week course.

It is a 60-hour commitment (5 hours per week).

Those 60 hours are roughly 30 hours on creative development & 30 hours on English learning (except these hours overlap).

It is packed full of good learning content. While it is designed for busy creatives to integrate with your studio practice – Sketchbook English does not do the work for you. (No course can).
