art-K is a private art education service which teaches children (who love art!) weekly during the day, after school and on the weekend. art-K has developed a specialist art program that tutors art skills to create great pieces of art. We are the largest art education service in England, teaching over 4000 children nationally per week.
All educationalist agree that Art has positive effects on mental health, self-confidence and developing an individual personality. Schools try to retain as much art as they can, whilst balancing the demands of the core curriculum. art-K helps realise those benefits by engaging teachers dedicated to these ideals and providing art projects that are inspiring and fun.
