As the Brentwood community includes about 40 American students, the school celebrates American Thanksgiving at the end of each November.

There are three sets of Parent-Teacher-Student...

Approximately two dozen Studio Art and Art History students crawled out of their beds early on a Friday morning in June to embark on their last field trip of the year.

AP Art Adventures

Dec 19, '15

“Do we have everyone?” This was, unfortunately, the over-asked question of the weekend. Blaming it on being artsy and scattered, the Studio Art AP students—or “clamlings” as is the correct term—ran all over Vancouver this past Friday and Saturday trying to keep everyone together. We were led by our very own Mr. Luna – art/life teacher...

Both types of people should attend the exquisite, peculiar Displays of Student Art and Sculpture, being held across the Brentwood campus from 2-4pm. “I haven’t seen this many drawing of rabbits since my kids watched Donnie Darko!” muttered...

Art Think

Mar 15, '15

It hangs high upon the walls. It ignites halls. Does the watchful observer of modern art, however, truly find what they are seeking? The question is rhetorical. Art, though dubbed a conventional practice — or celebration of learning in some instances — veers off the beaten path of academia. No piece of art is an 83 percent. Aspiring artists...

This past Friday, artists of the Drawing and Painting classes were fortunate to be taught by the acclaimed and esteemed Christian Nicolay. Christian, a multi-media artist out of Vancouver, provided priceless insight into the world of collage.
