Arbourthorne Community Primary School

Artist in Residence

About

Jayne Cooper has been Atelierista, or Artist in Residence at Arbourthorne for  over seven years . During this time she has worked across the whole school delivering a range of projects aimed at promoting high quality speaking and listening skills, and raising standards in literacy through engagement with the visual arts. Having founded the Family Art Club in 2009, Jayne has continued to work closely with many of our families, building relationships, confidence and exciting routes into home learning. Jayne divides most of her time between Arbourthorne and her painting studio in Louth, Lincolnshire, where she enjoys the crossover of ideas and experiences between the two practices.  

 

A bit about an Atelierista

Atelierista is an Italian term for a teacher with an Arts background. The Atelierista works from her Atelier (studio); a place where children become experts in their own learning  through exposure to a range of ‘intelligent’ materials and hands-on artistic explorations.  Through the Atelierista’s careful guidance and continuous documentation, children reflect and re-trace their discoveries, shaping future learning and placing value on process above outcome.
