Farewell, For Now, From the Arts Prefect

Jul 07, '20

The following address was delivered at the School's final assembly of the 2019-2020 academic year in early June, 2020. Last night I was thinking about what to put in this final speech, and I did not know where to start. I didn’t know whether or not to make it about the people I’ve met, the lessons I’ve learned, the experiences I’ve had, or the...

Carpe Argillum

Jul 01, '20

All I ever talk about is pottery as you all know, and today will not be any different. Today I want you to think about the lessons that clay can teach us. We often talk about the importance of resilience - the ability to come back and even thrive after going through a journey of tough times and difficult circumstances. Let’s look at clay as an...

The Arts Fair - Celebrating the Arts on Zoom

Jun 11, '20

We inherently understand how important arts are in everyone’s life either as the creator or the audience. Arts heal, console, inspire. They allow us to play. They are fuel for our hearts and minds. They lift us up. Every arts afternoon we have been privileged as our teachers continue to nurture the creative blossoming of all our students. We...

Yeah, Young Eddie Here!

Apr 14, '20

On the first day of spring break, four tenacious young filmmakers headed off early to Vancouver to attend an award ceremony featuring their prized rap video. The journey to this point was tough: many green screens were straightened, too many bars were spat, and too much skill was exhibited. Nonetheless, the work had paid off and this was their big...

Interhouse Mascot Paint In

Jan 23, '20

Having returned from the December Break, students are eager to join classes and contribute to their houses by participating in new interhouse events. This year, students and Mr Luna have organized an event calling artists from every house to showcase their painting skills in the new Interhouse Paint In Challenge. This event requires artists to...

Graphic Design Greatness

Dec 16, '19

One thing people normally think about graphic design is ‘Oh yeah, you only create posters and drawings all the time’ but let me explain to you what this class really is. When I had my first class, I was happily surprised. Nobody was using any pencil or paint. Instead, they were using Photoshop, a very powerful digital tool capable of letting you...

The Perfect Art to Relax Into

Nov 17, '19

Brentwood provides its students opportunities to express themselves - and do what they love - as well as allow us to explore other paths. Most people would agree that doing art work is another way to relax your mind without any competitive situation, or any anxiety that is created when dealing with academic work. Art is a big part of our...

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...
