art-K runs art classes for children aged 6-16 and adults. Our programme is personalised to each individual to enable you to learn and develop at your own rate. art-K takes children 6 to 16 years old on an extraordinary exploration of art. The original art-K has been running art classes since 2000 and in 2019 the Winchester branch opened. We now have over 25 branches across England.
Our aim is for the children to explore and experiment with a range of materials like watercolour, acrylics, pastels, inks, clay, papier-mâché; to develop their drawing skills in many different ways; try out many 3D activities; and above all keep them enthusiastic about art, motivated and continually developing their artistic skills. The projects are all age-related as we understand that at different ages children have different capabilities and interests.
We believe it's very important for younger children to develop their visual vocabulary so that they can draw from memory with freedom and confidence as they express themselves. To achieve this we incorporate exercises in the programme such as visual memory & visual perceptual skills. We also help children with their projects for art GCSE, providing them with a strong foundation to help their work to stand out.
In our adult classes, the programme is flexible, there is also structure for less experienced artists who are looking to learn a new skill or get back into art. Our programme is tailored to each individual's ability and interests. We inspire adults to develop new techniques, providing step by step guidance along the way and ideas if you are more experienced.
It's a great way to spend some 'me' time in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere, exploring inspirational artists work from the Impressionists to David Hockney to Ann Blockley, who is a vibrant watercolour artist. We experiment using their techniques and in the process perhaps create your own artistic style!
In both the children and adult classes, all art materials are provided. Children and adult classes are separate.
