Visual Memory

We help improve visual memory to enable children to draw from their mind realistically. We use all our senses to build up 3D images in their mind, from which they can draw on.

Fine Motor Control

We create building blocks for tackling more complex pictures. Specific shapes- for example an eye– can be especially challenging for younger children.

Spatial Awareness

We help children learn the proportion and placement of objects in space through scaling and 3D modelling.

Visual Perceptual Skills

We teach children observational drawing through patterns, shapes and shading techniques.

Our purpose

The art education service for children aged 6-16 expanding across the U.K. 

Our innovative teaching methods develop artistic skills through learning patterns, observation and memory.

Teaching
1,000+
students per week

When children are young they draw symbolically; typically, around age 6 they start trying to draw realistically. At this point, children are ready for guidance and support to develop their love of art.

By understanding the visual skills that children can achieve at each age, we are able to provide a personalised art programme to each individual. 

We teach a range of mediums and techniques. Once mastered, imagination and skill combine, resulting in creation of original artwork.

Working towards an Art GCSE can be daunting; our art lessons help GCSE students with perspective, portrait drawing and techniques that build up their sketchbooks to create structured, well-formed coursework.

Our Story

art-K is a family business with a strong purposemaking art matter. Art is everywhere we look; the TV, the clothes we wear, the buildings we design, the websites we create. 

Artist Advocates

“When Kathryn got in touch to ask if the children could use my artwork for inspiration I was more than delighted.  With art often being squeezed out of the curriculum its even more important to find alternative ways of getting children creative. The children have produced some wonderful pieces of art with the specialist help of art-K putting their own ideas and influences into them. Well done!”

  

Bridget Wilkinson

“We were delighted to know Art-K use our paintings to inspire children and the results we saw were fantastic. The peacock paintings in particular are fabulous. We hope you continue to inspire lots more children to pick up a paintbrush in the future and get cracking. It’s the best job there is!

 

Relton Marine

“It’s wonderful to see how Art-K work with young people to help them find their creative voice. I’m so glad that in some of this work they find my books to be useful creative tools, or catalysts for the imagination. I think it is so important in this world where children are often ignored that they are given opportunities to express themselves and discover the talents that lie within all of us.”
