On Friday the 1st of June, the Abraham Lincoln School in La Romana, is extending a special invitation to all members of the Casa de Campo and La Romana communities to join them in the opening cocktail for their annual art exhibit at the Altos de Chavón Art Gallery.
The annual art exhibit presented by the students of the Abraham Lincoln School (ALS) and their hardworking teachers will be on display for two weeks and present work from every grade in the school, from the tiny ones in the Pre-Kinder classes all the way up through senior year high school. The colorful exhibit brings even more life to our “Artist’s Village” with self-portraits, animal paintings, sketches, and sculptures, among others. The gallery space will fill top to bottom with work showcasing talent from our next generation of artists.
Last year’s exhibit was fantastic and what made it even more special was that it celebrated the school’s centennial! We saw butterfly prints and large-scale animal paintings by pre-kinder students; portraits, a seven-foot-tall cardboard tree in bright confetti with clay owls designed by Grade 1; lovely dream catchers, stunning large-scale mixed-media works and even life-size dresses made from repurposed materials, such as balloons! We can’t wait to see what this new year will bring! Mark your calendars for the opening cocktail on Friday, June 1st at 7:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Abraham Lincoln School, located within Central Romana, in the town of La Romana, is a private school for the children of employees of the Central Romana Corporation, but is also attended by other children who pay yearly tuition fees
The Abraham Lincoln School is an “English school” which means that classes are taught to a British standard curriculum and all the teachers are British, with the exception of course of the teachers who teach Spanish, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and PE who are Dominican. This means that the majority of classes are taught in English and children command both English and Spanish.
Although the curriculum is British, grades are awarded according to the American GPA system and the pupils also take the “Dominican National Exams”, allowing pupils to continue their education at universities in the USA or within the Dominican Republic, as well as in Europe.
Classes go from pre-kinder to 12th grade.
