ABOUT

We teach in a step-by-step, enjoyable way that children can understand and take beyond the classes. Your child will have the chance to experience an enormous range of techniques such as: drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and clay. We place a huge importance on art history throughout each project, and encourage the children to use our extensive selection of books and imagery for reference.

We offer a range of options including term-time classes, holiday workshops, private tuition, birthday parties, day trips and school visits.

Cygnets is a children's art school based in Kingston, Richmond and the surrounding areas. Our focus is on the teaching of traditional skills such as drawing, painting and sculpture, combined with unique projects; experienced teachers, and professional quality materials. 

The school was founded by married artists Tabby and Hessy.  They are both based in Kingston upon Thames, where they live on a houseboat with their dog Badger. Cygnets work with a small number of carefully-selected teachers, who are all DBS checked and talented artists in a variety of mediums.

 

Tabby studied illustration at Central Saint Martins Art College and now works as a freelance illustrator for clients such as Quercus Books and Bristol Zoo. James studied Fine Art at Kingston University and works as a successful printmaker.  With well over a decade of teaching experience between them, they are endlessly passionate about teaching children's art in new and exciting ways.
