Record-breaking students have cracking time with Smashed Hits artist Kirk Whitehouse

Children at Brookvale Primary School had a smashing time last week when talented Birmingham Artist, Kirk Whitehouse, visited school to produce some artwork made entirely from broken vinyl.

The event, which was part of the school’s Arts Week, saw children create artwork by their favourite music artists, Drake and Stormzy.

Kirk has been producing this style of art for a number of years now with growing popularity, both locally and nationally. He has produced work for a string of famous names in the music and sporting world.

Kirk said:

It was an honour to be asked to work with the children at Brookvale Primary School. This was my first time working with a group of children and I had one of my most satisfying days. They asked some brilliant questions and were fully engaged in their work. I was really proud of them and the work they produced. I would definitely be happy to call their work my own.”

The school will now be displaying this art work in the main hall to show everyone how well children did.

Kirk’s visits was part of a whole school arts week. The children enjoyed their opportunity to produce lots of art based around a number of famous artists.

Jennifer Maskell, deputy headteacher, said:

It has been a great week and the children have been really enthusiastic about the art they have produced. It is lovely to give a full range of opportunity and this week really fits in with our promise to provide a broad and balanced curriculum.”
