Cygnets Art School Twickenham is new branch of the hugely successful Cygnets Art School that was founded in Kingston in 2015. A second school was opened in Richmond not long after the first, and in 2019 the school began franchising, allowing creatives across the UK to open their own Cygnets Art School.

Cygnets Art School Twickenham Cygnets Art School Twickenham is run by Molly Butt, artist and resident on Eel Pie Island. Molly studied Fine Art BA at Kingston University, and completed an MFA at Wimbledon College of Art in 2016. Having assisted Cygnets founders, Tabby and Hessy, with some of their regular classes, she was keen to pursue a career teaching art to kids alongside her own painting practice.

Cygnets Art School Twickenham Molly is a skilled oil painter and exhibits regularly in London. Though painting is her main focus, drawing, sculpture and printmaking also play important roles in her work. Architecture and the natural world are her main sources of inspiration… Eel Pie Island and its boatyard is the perfect place for an artist to be based, and for budding artists to be inspired!

Regular classes take place on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays during term-time on Eel Pie Island.
