Art and Creativity sessions are offered to adults wishing to explore their imagination. Cornelia will tailor the ninety minute session to complement your enquiry into visual culture.

Dove Studios is a nurturing space in Chelsea where you can follow your curiosity, and where you can discuss and share your ‘findings’. Students can experiment with various mediums including drawing, painting, collage, pastels, making your own projects/personal gifts and much more.

Private tuition can be arranged upon request.


Mummy and Me

Mummy and Me

Mummy and Me Mornings


Mummy/Daddy or Nanny and me classes are offered to those who would like to spend quality time with their child and want some guidance in an art environment.

You and your child will be shown different ways of engaging with the art materials and there will be a different set of activities each time you come.

The emphasis is about enjoying the process together and less about performance and the end result.

The objective is to follow the child’s curiosity and to bolster their self-esteem, (possibly yours too in the process!).  

Like cooking, you can also take away “dove studios art recipes” to replicate at home having tried them out beforehand.

Projects involve:

Painting, Drawing, Making and Sticking.

By the end of 8 to 10 sessions, you will be able to collaborate with your child and encourage him or her to be creative, this will facilitate their self-expression.

Private sessions can also be arranged. 
Sessions are booked in a series, and a minimum of 6 to 8 is recommended.

There is a maximum of 6 people in a group class.

Art is Therapy

Art is Therapy


Art is Therapy!

The student is invited into the space for every kind of personal creative enquiry.

The art studio is also used as a space to explore emotional literacy.

Self discovery is often amplified through the use of arts and crafts and the imagination.

Art is its own champion of both emotional health and healing. We see art as a complementary process to psychotherapy, this is why Dove Studios is also used by people who wish to complement their therapeutic process.

The toy library and two Kalffian sandplay boxes are available for this purpose. 

We offer a weekend course for art therapists-in-training, in how to deepen their range and experience, through exploring the variety of materials in the art studio.
