I am still in the business of supporting Art from the grassroots, making effort to unearth the hidden talents in my community and advocating for visual aesthetic. I believe in the creative future of our children, and that’s why I teach Art.
On October 15th, I was at the 2014 NNPC/Chevron Joint Venture National Art Competition for Nigerian Secondary School students’ award ceremony in Lagos.
My Art protégé, Ayankola Olatomiwa Ridwan, a student of the Baptist Boys High School (Mission) is one of the 20 finalists selected from the 641 entries with the theme; Nigeria at 100 (Centenary Celebration).
I am so honoured to have presented a winner this year. I was at the 2010 edition of the Art contest final to commemorate the Nigeria’s 50th independence anniversary; and this year edition when Nigeria is celebrating centenary anniversary. This event is a “world cup” to be for all Art teachers.
I have been preserving the history of BBHS on www.baptistboyshighschool.blogspot.com and account of our participation has been updated. Please log on for details and more photos.
