Art

Head of Department: Karen Stickney

At Saint Ronan’s we provide children with an understanding of a variety of painting and drawing techniques and they have the opportunity to create Art with many different mediums. We have an extensively-equipped department which offers children the opportunity to experiment with textiles, ceramics, printing, glass fusing and many more. The Head of Art has a specialist background in ceramics and design and encourages the creation of three-dimensional forms. Children learn about artists from different periods and the creative approaches and techniques that they use/d in their work. They are encouraged to experiment with these techniques so that they learn how to use a range of artists’ materials and to express their own ideas through them. We want their experience to be stimulating, enjoyable and challenging.

We liaise with the Pre-Prep staff on a regular basis to ensure that the correct skills are being taught to prepare children for Art in the Prep school. Art is taught to coincide with the main topics that they study each term.

Throughout the school, pupils are encouraged to join Extra Art classes so that they can have more time to develop their creative skills.
