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
Each class at St Jérôme School is named after a significant Artist whose work is exhibited in galleries in London and we encourage our families to take their children to see these works of Art.
These are Monet and Renoir in Reception
Stubbs and Turner in Year 1
Le Brun and Bonheur in Year 2
The names of our classes alternate between French and British Artists and men and women.
