Roseau, Dominica (March 31, 2018) – To strengthen memory and motor skills and foster creative growth, all of which improves one’s quality of life, Miss Teen Dominica 2017, Cheyenne Dewhurst used one of her passions and hosted a positive art event called, A-R-T Attack, at the La Flamboyant Hotel on Thursday March 29, 2018 under the theme “Paint, Smile, Create”, with Attainea Toulon as the Guest Instructor.

Ms. Dewhurst aims to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the California College of the Arts in the future and the event was used to continue igniting that goal. With twenty (20) participants in attendance, the event was very successful because it stimulated communication, increased creativity and open-mindness whilst learning something new, and that brought out more confidence among the participants.

“I love creating things with my hands and using paint to express my uniqueness without having to use words. I already possess a range of paintings and intend to transform this passion into a career. Creating art stimulates communication between various parts of the brain and that is what we are doing here this evening.” Miss Dewhurst remarked in her welcome.

A-R-T Attack was sponsored by Perky’s Pizza, Clifftop Cleaning, A.F. Valmont & Co. Ltd and Excel Marketing Services. Ms. Ellisa James representing the Social Centre Adolescence Skills Training Programme, one of the young ladies vying for the title of Miss Teen Dominica 2018 was also in attendance. The show takes place on Saturday April 14, 2018 at the Old Mill Cultural Centre.
