Amandine Co-founder and Art Teacher
After a Fine Art and Textile Degree in Paris, Amandine began her career with children in France in 2005 and continued in Canada and now London.
In 2015, she co-founded petit atelier london with Kay Bathke, an artist and teacher, who now lives in Dubai. Amandine still runs the art camp, surrounded by great teachers from the lovely Heathside Preparatory School, and she is also doing her Montessori Teacher Training at the AMI Montessori Institute in London.
petit atelier london is a calm, nurturing environment in the Montessori approach for children to be creative and explore Art. All sessions in English with French translation incorporated into the teaching.
petit atelier london offers a broad variety of fun and creative art classes that teach children a love of art and artists.
We believe in the importance of art in education and how children can use their passion to develop their technique and ability.
petit atelier london wants to offer a space and time to children for them to create, discover and invent…for them to assimilate and understand the world and develop their self-confidence, happiness, and social skills.
— Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind.
"If we try to think back to the dim and distant past... what is it that helps us reconstruct those times, and to picture the lives of those who lived in them? It is their art... It is thanks to the hand, the companion of the mind, that civilization."
