Art lessons at St Jérôme School are taught by our specialist teacher in partnership with our Artist in Residence through the medium of French. Children learn about the work of famous artists from the past and present and explore their own creativity with a range of materials and techniques.
In Key Stage 1 children at St Jérôme School are taught:
- to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products
- to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination
- to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space
- about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work
Children create art in our designated creative workshop, atelier créatif, which is fully equipped to support children in the art curriculum. This room on our second floor looks out across Harrow and is bathed in light.
