Creative Arts

The purpose of Art and Design education is to give children the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences in a visual form. It fires their imagination and is a fundamental means of personal expression.

At Brill, we provide opportunities for the children to explore their ideas by experimenting, inventing and creating their own varied works of art using a range of materials.  Creating art is often seen as the only aspect of Art and Design but at Brill School, we believe that there is a vital importance for children to be provided with opportunities to respond, critique and reflect on art that has already been created.  We strive to create a safe and purposeful learning environment in art lessons, where children are encouraged to be inquisitive, resourceful and creative whilst being supported and challenged.

Louie in Year 1 has been creating some incredible 3D artwork during his Easter Break at home.  He has found some different sized rocks in his garden and decided to piece them together and paint them to create a monstrous Dinosaur!  This is such a creative and clever idea Louie and I encourage others to try this as well!

Art On The Hill

Every year Brill School are lucky enough to organise and host a local art exhibition known as 'Art On The Hill'.  This exhibition provides the children with the opportunity to create and display their own work for the local community to come and admire.  This is a real highlight for not only the Brill children, the Brill team but the Brill surrounding community too.


Every child created a piece of work using 'Growth Mindset' as the stimulus for Art On The Hill 2019. 

How do we teach art at Brill?
