Art & Street Theatre

Year-round (except July & August)

Group bookings only
12 – 17 year olds

Our Art & Street Theatre English Programme is available year-round (excluding July & August) and runs over two weeks with each week focusing on one subject.

The first week focuses on art and combines class tuition and practical workshops with local artists as well as cultural visits. At the end of the week you will exhibit your art in a local gallery in the form of an ‘opening’ to celebrate your work.

In the second week tuition focuses on street theatre and works up to a final performance for the public in the streets of Edinburgh’s city centre.

Along with a selection of general English topics your lessons will have a specific focus on art and theatre. Topics include:

  • Sculpture
  • Photography
  • Curating an Exhibition
  • Drama and Music
  • Performance skills
  • Scriptwriting
  • Set design
  • Public performance

We want you to enjoy our English lessons and have picked topics which will interest you.

Our methodology is about giving you the chance to communicate in English so you won’t be faced with the same boring old grammar exercises that you get at home, you will be involved in projects and tasks which will involve you and make you use the language and have daily English conversation.

Our teachers are specially trained to help you activate the knowledge you already have as well as correct your mistakes. You will have the chance to improve your vocabulary and grammar during the lessons as well.

Your activity programme

You will have fun on our activities…and you will learn as well!

Our experienced activity leaders will make sure you get all the information you require before and during the visit so that you make the most out of the experience.

We include drama and team games during our activities to lighten the mood, keep you on your toes and most of all, make sure you are having fun!

Some particular places of interest you may visit are as follows;
Edinburgh Castle
Museum of Scotland
Arthur’s Seat
Royal Botanic Gardens

Our evening activities are great fun and steeped in British traditions;

Ceilidh – a ceilidh is an evening of Scottish dancing to traditional music. It is very energetic and involves following instructions, dancing together and losing inhibitions. It is a fun group activity that is extremely popular with students which introduces them to different ways of socialising and having fun.

Quiz night

Evening at the theatre – each week students will have the chance to see a professional show at one of Edinburgh’s top theatres. Seeing how the professionals do it acts as inspiration for their week of drama.
