Art Stop has been set up to provide fun and educational experiences for people of all ages and abilities. It was founded by Lisa Howes, a passionate teacher with over 20 years experience teaching in Enfield schools, first as a class teacher and then as an arts specialist.
Lisa offers a range of classes which are taught in a stimulating art studio at St. Andrew's Church in Southgate which is easily accessible by car or public transport.
SMARTY PANTS is an educational experience for pre schoolers which gives a head start to the EYFS curriculum. Each weekly theme is based around a story from which children can then access free choice activities carefully planned to support the 7 areas of learning all through the amazing platform of expressive arts. Children learn best by getting the left and right side of the brain working together to form connections and SMARTY PANTS will certainly do that!

ArtStop. children's activities 5 My grandson was totally absorbed by Art Stop's children's activities. He watched Lisa's video three times and finished his competition poster that same day. He's not an 'arty' 5 year old, but this caught his imagination and held his attention for a whole day. Well done and thanks Lisa, keep up the brilliant work!

Art Stop Parties 5 A massive thank you to Lisa. The party was, according to 7 year old Charlotte: “the BEST party I’ve ever had”! And from a mum’s perspective it was a joy to watch them so engrossed and proud of their own masterpieces. There was also a great deal of giggling throughout!!! Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5 Lisa is such an amazing artist. Our PTA hosted an Art Night for Reception - Year 1 students and invited Lisa to be part of it. Her mini lesson was absolutely amazing, the children were enraptured from start to finish. They learnt so much about the World's most famous painting, the Mona Lisa. Then she gave them a mini tutorial on the correct way to hold a paintbrush then were released to unleash creatively on canvas! Thank you so much Lisa, the children said that this was the best art lesson they've ever had, better than the school's art club! Can't wait to have you at another of our events.

Hitchens 5 I went to a class at the Dugdale this evening run by Lisa and really enjoyed it. She showed us step by step how to create a notebook and I was really pleased with my final piece. I will be using what I learnt at home and will definitely be attending her classes again!
