One Hour Full of Wood

Nov 09, '19

Woodworking is my favourite art. It's perfect to be creative and to just implement your thoughts. The course takes place in the basement floor of the Arts building. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon we start the class with the teachers, Mr. Parent and Ms. Ramsey who have thoughts and tricks to build something. Afterward an...

Brentwood Through Our Lenses

Oct 23, '19

With all of the events and activities at Brentwood, I find that memories often get lost in time. In Brentwood Broadcast we quite literally “broadcast” Brentwood to the world. We share the memories. Since we are a global school, it's often hard to keep in touch with the extended Brentwood family. Broadcasting is a medium in which the students...

Ceramics Gets Started

Oct 18, '19

Pottery has been a big draw for students from 9th grade to 12th alike. Taught at Brentwood for the past twenty-two years by Ms Peggy Elmes, pottery has been and continues to be a passion of hers, one she hopes she can pass on to her students. Just six weeks into term one, students new to the class are learning the fundamentals of pottery, and...

3D Art and Sculpture

Oct 15, '19

I came to Brentwood last year eager to experience its unique tripartite system that allows a student to juggle their academic goals, commit to their athletic ambitions, and turn their artistic fantasies into a reality.

There is an indescribably visceral feel about experiencing an art work.

Swimming in Winter? Why Not?

Mar 16, '19

Since I was a kid swimming in Cinque Terre, Liguria, in Italy has always been - and will always be - a part of my life. I remember the time when my grandma used to bring me to the beach, early in the mornings, with few people around, a crystal clear sky and a shining sun that let the transparent, still untouched water, sparkle. We would go for a...

Casting & Soapstone

Dec 28, '18

Brentwood offers a wide variety of arts courses, from rock bands and string orchestras to musical productions, dance, and acting, not to mention an array of visual and technical arts. One of these is the sculpture course overseen by our amazing - and sadly departing - shop teacher, Mr Hunwick, who may as well have his own ninja turtle named...

It has been proven to relieve stress and calm the mind, and is very important for developing brains. Many schools offer multiple arts, such as drawing, painting, woodwork, and photography.

Get In, Get Dirty

One of the most popular arts at Brentwood is pottery. More specifically, handbuilt pottery. The class has three fine art blocks, all fully enrolled.
