This art class is ideal for children who enjoy hands-on art experiences with activities that inspire their imagination and allow them to be creative.

Professional and experienced educators guide the children step by step in a specific activity by using a combination of art mediums and tools, such as watercolours, acrylic paint, charcoal, pencils, canvas and paper.

Each week they look at different artists and explore their working methods and materials used in the work with the students. The students will use this inspiration to create their own art work.

At the end of each art class we encourage students to discuss their work.

This course focuses on developing;

  • Imagination
  • Creativity
  • Drawing abilities, improving fine motor skills
  • Observation
  • Visual memory and concentration
  • Self confidence

Autumn Term 2020 dates:

  • First Week: 14th September
  • Last Week: 30th November
  • Half Term week: 26th October

About the Tutors

Start Studios was founded by two artists and mothers, Carla Tebbutt and Fernanda Moreno.

Carla has studied Developmental Psychology, and Art Therapy, and more recently courses in mindfulness for children, and child mental health awareness and well-being. She has worked with children from 18 months up to 16 years old, both at nursery and primary school and beyond. She is fascinated by shapes and colours and believes that creative expression is about the process, the journey through which we use and develop our genius, our brilliance.

Fernanda started her career studying graphic design at university in Mexico City, followed by a course in drawing, painting and photography at  Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute in Florence, Italy. She continued her art education at the Art Institute of Philadelphia where she studied Animation and Media arts.  “It was the perfect combination of my favourite things: drawing and cartoons.” She has worked in animation and design on TV, films and video in New York, Mexico City and London –  the Harry Potter series, The Hunger Games, Ex-Machina and James Bond to name but a few. She teaches animation at Notting Hill and Ealing High School.
