Children from Hillbury House Nursery in Hove, East Sussex took the train to Brighton to experience street art on Tuesday 25 January.

The trip was designed to reflect different aspects of artistic culture, a subject the children in the Great Hall learned about in class.

In the morning, the children looked at pictures of street art from all over the world, while painting.

In the afternoon, they brought the art they had looked at to life when they found it in Brighton.

Brighton and Hove are home to some of the most active street artists in the UK and the children loved exploring the different works of art.

Children also visited Oddballs in the lanes of Brighton and took part in circus tricks.

Liz Woolley, owner of Hillbury House Nursery, said: “We are looking at different cultures in our community.

“After spending the morning creating our own art, we thought what better way to explore the street art culture in our city than to go see it for ourselves.

“It really brought the magic of the artists in our community to life and also inspired our little budding artists.”

One of the children wrote in his learning journal: “My favorite thing was seeing the snake graffiti – it was so big.”
