About Me

Hi, I'm Bella.

I believe art and design education can inspire children and teenagers to express their ideas and feelings creatively through various art elements, materials, and creative approaches. I want to be the inspirational art and design teacher who not only encourages children and teenagers to express their ideas and feelings creatively and confidently but also uses art and design to discover their talents and interests to prepare for their future.

I'm an educator and artist based in London with 10+ years of experience in the art and design field. I have studied art and design in different counties - the United Kingdom, the United States, and Hong Kong, which lead me to gain a wide range of art and design knowledge and techniques.

With the experience I acquired, I graduated from Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design earning a first-class degree with my artworks exhibited in major museums and exhibitions, such as Victoria & Albert Museum (London), Barbican Centre (London), British Museum, JOYA Barcelona Contemporary Jewellery Fair and Beijing International Jewelry Art Exhibition.

As an art educator, I have developed and acquired a wide range of skills in creative teaching methods through my 4 years of teaching primary art experience which students and parents find my lessons full of joy yet challenging!​

Carlos
Drawing lessons: comic, cartoon, manga, any style and level
The classes are completely practical, focused on whatever the student requires. The first class is to establish the pupil's level, giving him or her some information and advice and proposing a few exercises to practice. From the second class, we start correcting the exercises from the last session, adding new information, and proposing more exercises. Learning how to draw is not easy, but this method is the most comfortable way. Moreover, we start drawing whatever the pupil wants, which motivates him/her to continue drawing. The lessons can be about character design, anatomy, perspective, backgrounds, line art, color, storytelling, comics, and illustration. It can be traditional, digital, or both.

Cartoon drawing for everyone. From beginners to advanced.
Cartoon or Comic (or Comics, or Manga, or BD, or Fumetti,…) is the art of telling through successive images (“Juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence, intended to convey information and/or to produce an aesthetic response in the viewer” — Scott McCloud). Together with you I will look for your own stories. You *don't* need to be able to draw for this, although that's a plus. Yet the emphasis here is not on the technical "drawing" itself, but on how you tell your story, and what you want to achieve with it. Beginners start by creating simple yet flexible characters according to the philosophy of Cartoonist/Comic artist Ivan Brunetti. To loosen the creative muscles, we follow the philosophy of Lynda Barry. But that's just the starting point. For children it will be an introduction to the elements of comics, and how we can use them to make up a nice story. For teens and older we can also talk about tone, theme, tension and rhythm, we go into the use of composition, the meta box, lettering, color, format, etc… Advanced people, who already have more (comic) experience, go with me and each other in search of depth, try to bring challenges to a successful end, and raise their bar. These lessons are given individually as well as for groups, but group lessons have the advantage that you can learn from what others develop with a similar assignment. If the group is large enough, the price can of course also be reduced. Before the lesson is definitively booked, I will ask what your level and experience are via a short questionnaire. I am a professional cartoonist ( http://duckrabbit.studio ), with over 15 years of experience in character creation, storytelling, etc… mainly in a professional context. In addition, I am a lifelong comic book fanatic, who is at home in all markets, and combines a Master in Applied Visual Arts (Graphic Design/Specialty Comic Strip) with an Educational Master in the Arts. I have experience in teaching primary school children, teenagers, and adults alike, and I am convinced that the medium of Strip deserves more respect.
