Certificate of Excellence Recipients
Brenda Rowe of Bishops College in St. John's was the driving force behind the school's new gallery for student artwork. This gallery attracts visitors from all over the city, provides practical advertising and marketing experience to students, and inspires budding artists. Ms. Rowe is an energetic advocate of the arts, seeing them as an integral component of education and an avenue for exploring important societal issues. Her courses integrate art with other disciplines in interesting and creative ways. Her students worked with the Biology Department to develop natural dyes for exhibition at the school science fair, and with chemistry students to test ceramic glazes. Ms. Rowe provides a well-planned and guided learning experience for her students, with regular constructive feedback, and teaches them how to critique their own work, encouraging peer evaluation. Many former students are enrolled in fine arts schools.
