art-K Maidstone teaches weekly after school art classes and Saturday art classes for children aged 6-16, supporting children’s artistic development in a dedicated art studio. During the day, we run a home educated class for children aged 6-16. In the holidays, we run holiday 2-hour workshops in the morning and afternoon; some children attend both of these and return (after a lunch break) in the afternoon.
Educationally, we support those who are working towards their GCSE as well as providing a safe, creative space for children to express themselves creatively.
The art-K programme is age-based and helps children develop the four visual skills: visual perception, fine motor skills, visual memory and spatial awareness. We’re able to personalise the art-K programme to each individual student and help them realise their artistic potential.
We often have comments from parents that our teaching methods and environment have supported their children’s mental health, helping their child gain confidence and feel proud of their artistic skills.
