Monday, March 16, 2009 – The George Charles Secondary School will on Thursday, 19th host a one-day exhibition entitled ‘Barehanded’ at the Castries City Hall. The school is holding the activity as part of its recognition of Saint Lucia’s 30th Anniversary of Independence.


Principal of the School Lera Pascal says the institution is proud to provide a showcase for the wealth of creativity demonstrated by the students.


We are bringing out the creativity of the students with virtually minimum input from outside; everything is being done right here, and I want to say that our students do have a lot of talent. They may not excel in academia, but there are areas where they can excel and this is one; in the arts especially—the visual arts. There’s much enthusiasm, they are very excited about it,” Ms. Pascal said.


Visual Arts teacher Delphia Julian, says the exhibits will feature primarily handicraft, textile and paintings and will offer participating students an invaluable opportunity to have their work publicly recognized.


I think it’s not just about producing work; the students must also experience the wholistic experience of showing their work and they must understand what they do are also marketable products. A lot of the work that will be shown is really from the work that the students do from their various visual arts classes—predominantly the form fours and fives; it's really coming from the students' SBA's,” she said.


The exhibition will be preceded by an opening ceremony at 10:00 am.
