Danica Art Studio 


David acknowledges that, “To prepare for this exhibit, the UVI students have been painting with acrylic on canvas for several weeks. Since late August, they continue to study sundry Caribbean artists.” HaileyTresch, an exchange

student from the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs states, “In Professor David’s class I learn about many Caribbean artists [living and dead] and discover that the USVI and surrounding areas have many talented individuals."


Another student, Tarika Woods, from St. Croix notes, “Taking this course [Caribbean Art 1] makes me confident in painting and sketching.”  

David, a well-known local mixed-media artist, has been teaching Caribbean Art1 @UVI for two semesters and finds that students learn verbally from the lectures, visually by journaling notes, and comprehensively by painting. “This exhibit is also a part of the overall course learning experience,” David notes. She adds,”UVI students are able to understand that art galleries are imperative to Caribbean artists’ development.”
