The work of more than 20 art students of Combermere School was displayed today during the annual speech day and prize giving ceremony.
Head of the Music and Fine Arts Department, Marguerita Jordan told Barbados TODAY that the students, from second form to those taking the CAPE exams, worked with a range of mediums including textiles.
She said that she, like Principal Vere Parris, was pleased with the results of those who wrote the CSEC and CAPE exams.
“They are getting better. Our students seem to be interested in doing the CAPE and they come from other schools here to do it. From first form we drill them about the job opportunities they can find in the area.
“What we do, I’ve actually broken down the CAPE syllabus right down to first form so get them accustomed to writing about their work,” Jordan explained.
The Head of Department added that the teachers tried to encourage the students to do multi-media.
Among the display were boxes, a tie-dyed dress with embroidery, tied dyed covered throw cushions, a lace and denim umbrella, paintings, and masks. (DS)
