Art Classes at our Hove studio

Art classes are taught after school from Monday to Friday, as well as mornings and afternoons on Saturday and Sunday in our art studio at 286 Portland Road (on-street parking is free just up the 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.
