Art Show in the Pioneer Preparatroy School - 2015

In spite of the fact that Dominica has already engaged a new academic year, I cannot forget one of the most memorable events that took place at the closure of the previous school year. On June 20, 2015, the Pioneer Preparatory School held an art exhibition presenting the work of its students, aged 4 to 12. The exhibition brought together teachers, students, parents, relatives and friends of the school, all of whom were simply the art friends of the young talents.

Personally, it was an exhilarating experience to see how children of Dominica view the world, and how this is reflected in their art work.

The first thing that caught my eye was the unique choice of bright and rich colours in all the art pieces. Retrospectively speaking, this is not really surprising as under the hot sun, there is simply no place for shades of grey. If one looks at the sea, he sees a mirror of brilliant blues; if he gazes at the mountains, he witnesses a lush green carpet.

Editor’s note: This article was originally written by Alvan Heyliger, a small island voice on kittivisianlife.com

Let’s agree to disagree on the topic of musical artists in the Caribbean, and the stories they sing about sincere expressions of their experience and feelings or an avenue to further their careers and just a money making scheme?

Most people would say that artistes are inspired by their life stories, but are these life stories fact or fiction?

Many artistes often sing violence-inducing songs and then turn around and sing a song promoting peace and harmony. Why do they do this; why do they constantly contradict themselves? This shows there is no set purpose for their music.

In the world today people have become foolish; they promote songs that make no sense. There are some songs that contain only one word, so are these really songs? Others refer to them as art, which I might add is right; these cannot be real songs in my opinion.

People of the journalistic world and others who read this article, I leave it up to you to decipher what is really the purpose of the music. Is it for love and enjoyment of making music or for the love of money? You decide!
