Childrens Art Sale! Private View 6th July 7pm-9pm
Putting art at the centre of a Primary Schools ethos is a bold thing to do but thats exactly what Beecroft Garden Primary School has been doing since the school re-opened in 2012.
Visitors to the school enter a reception area that has been designed as an open-plan gallery and library space that is filled with works by children working both collaboratively and individually. The children at the school are always encouraged to talk about art and culture and to understand how the arts can be used to explore the world around them.
Beecroft Garden Primary School are holding an exhibition of children’s work at Lewisham Arthouse
Artists are encouraged to attend the Private View and meet the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher and, of course, view exceptional art created by children from the school.
An event where all the art sold raises money for developing a special outside space and training for the children to revive Brockleys tradition of bee-keeping!

Oliver Basciano, Editor (International) of ArtReview said: Its great to see a school that understands bringing to fore a childs innate creative spirit is of paramount importance. Who knows, perhaps one day one of the children from Beecroft Garden Primary School will be showing in the Tate, building architectural icons or writing life-changing novels.
