FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Grand Bahama FNM Candidate Peter Turnquest, visited Lucaya International School to view the International Baccalaureate (IB) student Art exhibition for 2012.  The International Baccalaureate is a demanding and highly respected pre-college Diploma Programme. Students who choose to take the Art course must do a two year study which requires them to create a minimum of 12 pieces of studio work and a workbook reflecting a commitment to personal media experimentation, cultural and historical research, critical analysis and an ongoing investigation of a personal theme.

The students then host an exhibition, which acts as a concluding IB Art examination.  The six young ladies exhibiting this year showcased work in photography, print, modelling, paintings, origami and many other mediums.  The exhibition is open during school hours and "is a preface for the IB invigulaitor who is sent to examine the students work," said Julie Hoyle, LIS Art Teacher.

"I have to say I was genuinely impressed with the work," said Turnquest. "Each student took the time to explain the reason behind their choice of pieces and themes.  They were so confident in their explanations and the calibre of their work was of such a high standard, you forgot they were high school students."  The artists' work will stay on display for the remainder of the week as they prepare for the final examinations for the rest of the IB program.
