Art is a vital part of the Creative Curriculum at Parsons Green Prep, supporting all-round development and enabling independent thinking and expression. Class teachers deliver art lessons in the Early Years and Key Stage 1. In Key Stage 2, specialist teachers give lessons in the art room. We ensure that learning is relevant, effective and fun by threading art objectives through cross-curricular topics.
We aim to provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences for children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. Pupils have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of media through drawing, painting, pottery and sculpture.
Pupils explore ideas and meanings from the work of artists and designers and the impact they have on our lives and culture. In particular, our much-loved school Art Day is an opportunity for pupils to study the work of a designated artist. They produce a range of creative work that is then displayed around the school.
