Art Classes At Our Bowes Park Studio

Art classes are taught after school from Tuesday to Friday, as well as mornings and afternoons on Saturday in our art studio at 219 Whittington Road.

Only at art-K is each student’s artistic journey nurtured individually by working on their own project and progressing at their own pace, which allows students to feel in control of their creative self-expression in a non-competitive environment. Our classes allow students to discover and experiment with exciting art techniques and mediums including shading techniques, watercolour, acrylics,  paper sculpture, mixed media and clay sculpture to provide constantly engaging learning opportunities.

For GCSE and A Level classes, find out more here.
