This drawing and painting class is ideal for children looking to develop their own style through discussion and understanding of different techniques.

Led by professional and experienced educators, the students learn traditional drawing techniques and use these as a basis for experimentation.

At the outset students learn how to draw simple objects, using pencil and charcoal. Guided by the tutors in a step by step process they progress to more complex subjects working with pastels, watercolour washes and acrylics.

They learn “how to see”, how to observe forms, tones, textures, proportions, perspective and colour so they are able to express themselves and create unique artwork.

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

This Drawing and Painting Class focuses on developing;

  • Observational skills
  • Drawing abilities
  • Imagination and creativity
  • The use of particular techniques and materials to express ideas
  • Visual memory and concentration

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.
