Brentwood School is thrilled to announce that its cast and crew brought home the 1st place AA trophy yesterday for their One Act play of Brother Wolf. The award-winning play is led directed by Brentwood’s own Dr. Jerry Snider and music and choreography by Mrs. Mary Ellen Tinley. This dynamic duo sticks to the traditional Applalachian adventure tale on the story of Beowulf, while adding musical traces and artful storytelling that shows the division between good and evil. Set high in the North Carolina mountains, a family is threatened by a demon named Grin Dell. When a preacher named Brother Wolf arrives to lend a hand, the death of a demon sets of a cycle of revenge that can only be stopped by learning to forgive.
Brentwood is proud to highlight folklore, myth, music, and mountain religion rolled into this suspenseful, gripping performance.
Congratulations to Shelby Everett for her award for Best Actress.

Artome Art Show
Mrs. Christy Wallace is no stranger to Brentwood School. This is her 11th year teaching Art at Brentwood. , she loves teaching all different age groups and helping the students to “see as an artist sees” and express their creativity through the beautiful artwork that they make. In Brentwood Art, students learn the language of Art, take inspiration from famous artists throughout history, and experiment with various media beginning in Kindergarten. Each year they build on what they have learned in years past. Then, as Juniors and Seniors, if students choose to take Art as an elective, they get really in- depth with drawing and learning to model their drawings and make them look 3-D and realistic. Then, they work diligently with color theory and painting, and cover Art History from Prehistoric Art to Modern Art, as well as work with clay and sculpture and all types of form.
In the last few years, Mrs. Wallace started having a school-wide, Artome, Art Show annually to show parents and friends all of the great things going on in Brentwood’s Art classes. She also wanted to give the K-6th grade students a chance to take pride in their work and see it matted , framed, and exhibited in a professional manner. Additionally, the show would give families the opportunity to purchase the students’ work matted and framed, and ready to hang in their homes. Artome also makes high quality reproductions of the students work, if parents want additional copies of their child’s artwork for friends and family members. The show is a fun way to celebrate Art at Brentwood and give parents a lasting keepsake made by their child to display proudly in their homes. Here are some of Mrs. Wallace’s wonderful displays of her talented students and it only shows a bit of commitment and love for her students. Well done students and Mrs. Wallace!
