Kids Art School Holiday Workshop
I had the pleasure of hosting a workshop at Into-Arts West Ryde last Wednesday with these amazing bunch of students.
In this 3 hour workshop, we produced 3 artworks using watercolour and acrylic paints.
It was hands on class which of course got messy but it was a lot of fun, needless to say every single one of them did a fantastic job.

Kids Art Class - Tuesday afternoons
Here at Art & Lettering Hub, we create many pieces of beautiful art. Each week, we paint and draw art works that range from different subject matters. This helps encourage, challenge children to be engaged and develop their skills in art.
Here is a collection of their wonderful creations that we have been learning and painting each week from Terms 1,2 & 3.
At this stage, zoom classes are only available and held every Tuesday afternoon from 3.40 to 4.40pm. Term 3 class is full however Term 4 is open for enrolment. Click here for more information
If your child loves to paint and draw, please contact me for a free trial lesson.
Term 3 - Zoom Art Class
This term we are learning a lot of watercolour and acrylic techniques. Every week we will be painting different art subjects which represents each technique we use. It allows each student to see how this all applies in their artwork and use it in their everyday works.
Genelly is not only super talented at calligraphy/brush lettering, but also a really patient teacher and lovely person. I attended a workshop she ran last year and it was such a great introduction into brush lettering with ink. Not only that, but she set all the participants up with resources to move forward in developing their skills afterwards. She provided us with detailed guides, a beautiful brush, paper and more. I would definitely recommend her workshop for anyone with an interest in calligraphy, even absolute beginners. Don't be shy - give it a go!
I was lucky to be in Genelly’s first brush lettering workshop. It was fantastic.From the moment we walked in the door, everything was perfectly organised and presented. Genelly is very talented and knowledgeable on the history, types and evolution of calligraphy and brush lettering. The take home practice book was awesome too and is useful for continued practice of this tricky art form! I highly recommend Genelly
Lettering by Genelly was recommended to me via instagram mid-last year and have been following her work ever since :). I attended one of her brush lettering workshops for beginners last December and really enjoyed it! I've had some prior brushlettering experience but her workshop really helped clarify how to actually use brushlettering tools. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow with combining basic strokes to create letters.
The materials provided during the workshop, especially the exercise booklet and alphabet exemplar have helped me so much :). Her sweet, lovely and vibrant personality and hard work ethic shows through the products she makes and the workshops that she facilitates. I highly recommend her services (and her in general, she's pretty awesome).
Just did the three hour Workshop for Beginners on Saturday, loved it!! Has ignited a fresh passion in me for ink and brush, and I am getting into a discipline of daily practice with a selection of felt tips too. The workshop had such a fun, inclusive and easy-going vibe – Genelly exudes such care and enthusiasm and you can't help but feed off it. This is a great way to start tightening up your lettering skills regardless of what level of beginner you are, I'd fully recommend it.
Thank you Genelly for such a wonderful experience, and your generosity in sharing your skills, advice and knowledge! See you at the Intermediate workshop soon!
I did one of Genelly's brush lettering classes and she was an awesome, patient teacher. It was such a great way to learn the basics of brush lettering and I definitely learnt lots from Genelly! After the class, I've had a few questions and she's been super helpful by sending me videos with hints and tips on how to answer my questions. 5/5 for this beautiful lady :)
Genelly’s work is the best around. I’ve had signage, birth prints and tags all done by her. I’ve also attended a lettering workshop and she is an amazing teacher. So patient and encouraging. Wouldn’t go anywhere else
Commissioned some customised Christmas cards for work and boy. They look spectacular! Gen was thorough in her communication and she took the time to understand exactly what I wanted. Impressive turnaround too!.
Great workshop, amazing value for money. All materials supplied with handy hints, links to websites and written instructions provided. Friendly & knowledgable teacher. Highly recommend this course
Best hand lettering class I've ever been to! The teacher was so helpful and kind and a delight to be around! I was unsure whether I liked hand lettering using brushes but I now like it. The materials provided were great and I liked the place which the class was held at. Would definitely recommend this to others. Very relaxing class.
Art Class Testimonials
Genelly has been teaching art to my seven year old son Charlie for over a year now. Charlie is boisterous and loves the outdoors... and now, he loves art! Thanks to Genelly and her imaginative, clever and interesting lessons, Charlie has developed a truly genuine love of drawing and painting. He looks forward to Tuesday afternoons, where he asks a very patient Genelly a hundred questions about his project for that week. Genelly has opened Charlie’s eyes to a creative world early in his life, setting a solid foundation for art appreciation going forward.
Genelly has a kind, gentle and focussed approach that encourages children at all levels. She's always bright and cheerful with the children, guiding them throughout the lesson to remain focussed and engaged with their work. I am particularly grateful that Genelly continued art classes on Zoom. This meant Claudia could continue to access this creative outlet which she loves so much. Genelly is passionate about teaching children art and this is shown in the artwork produced by Claudia. I'm always excited to see what she has painted after each class.
Claudia - Student
Genelly is awesome. She teaches really well on zoom (especially because that can be hard) and in the classroom. She is really engaged when teaching art. This makes learning art easier and quite alot of fun.... Genelly's just really cool.
I can't say enough how thankful we are for finding Genelly. She is an extremely talented artist in her own right but the icing on the cake is her ability to teach & get children of all ages & abilities to produce the most wonderful art works. In her classes,Genelly has such an engaging, enthusiastic, vibrant, encouraging, passionate approach towards each individual child. Her patience & incredible ability to instruct & provide easy to follow instructions on her zoom lessons gets the kids creating pieces & understanding the technical side of art alongside the creative that they clearly are proud of.I was looking for quite a while to find an art class for my 11 year old son that would allow him to be comfortable with being creative but not break the bank. Thank goodness a friendly school yard chat uncovered the best kept secret in the art world.......Genelly Abecina! Secret no more!!!
