art-K, the leading provider of educational art classes in high street studios across the UK, is adding a ‘splash of colour’ to London through the opening of a new art class in Bowes Park taught by colour specialist Elisha Keyworth.
Elisha will be providing art lessons to children aged between 6 to 16. She is a graduate of the Brighton School of Art and has extensive experience in utilising colour effectively for 2D and 3D artworks. She also studied an MA in Art & Design in education at UCL and is dedicated to ensuring that children feel encouraged to pursue art in a safe and motivating environment.
The art-K centre in Bowes Park is offering classes in various styles and mediums throughout the weekdays and weekends. It is also running daytime classes throughout the summer holidays, a significant benefit for families seeking activities for their children during this year of the staycation.
art-K Art Leader Elisha, said “We can’t wait to welcome students to our new studio in Bowes Park. Art is a wonderful form of self-expression for children, and our curriculum teaches them not only artistic skills, but it also empowers them through providing life skills that they might not gain from more traditional subjects in schools.”
art-K Managing Director Emily Harper, said “We’re thrilled to open the doors of our new studio in Bowes Park. It’s a vibrant area thriving with coffee shops, music studios and nature away from the hustle and bustle of central London.”
“Elisha has heaps of experience working with children, and her skills will provide a unique art experience for our students”, said Harper.
The branch address is: 219 Whittington Rd, London N22 8YW

Notes to editors
The journey began in 2000, when Kathryn Harper combined her creative inclination and her experience in paediatric speech and language therapy to develop an art programme for children.
In 2016 daughter – Managing Director Emily Harper – saw the opportunity to build an art tuition company that would represent the future of art education nationally, and art-K was born. Together Emily and Kathryn (Creative Director) have grown art-K to more than 30 clubs, teaching 3000+ students per week and employing over 100 artists.
In 2018 David Harper, who had long corporate experience, supported the business to help mentor and develop art-K into a company with strong corporate governance.
art-K’s goal is to ensure that every child passionate about art has the chance to be a part of an art-K club in their local area. It is looking to build a community of individuals who share a common passion and enthusiasm for creating art.
art-K classes focus on fundamental principles of art, which can be used as building blocks by its students to develop their skills and confidence in experimenting with different artistic styles and mediums. That is why its classes are tailored to individuals and open to everyone.
