     Started his studies in the School of Arts and Crafts of Bahia
    1895

    Jornal do Commercio 5/7/1964: Pastinha has good memories of the School of Arts and Crafts [7 on the map], where he learned the first letters, and dedicated himselg to the painting, coming later to exercise the profession, «since capoeirista never was a profession and those times who practised it was considered a malandro».

    [..] Leaving the school [of the Marines in 1910], he made a living with the profession he had learned in the School of Arts and Crafts. He became a painter and, painting here and there, "defended himself", managing enough money to sustain himself. Then he became a capoeirista.

    Wikipedia: From then on [1899 when defeating Honorato], Pastinha had a happy and modest childhood. In the mornings he would take art classes at the Liceu de Artes e Ofício school, where he learned to paint; afternoons were spent playing with kites and practicing Capoeira. He continued his training with Benedito for three more years.
