Altos de Chavón has been the home of Chavón School of Design since 1983, and is the first option for anyone aspiring to pursue a career in art. They have also opened a second campus located in Santo Domingo, where they not only offer the same curriculum but also courses in Continued Education, and Chavón Kids and Teens. This year, starting on February 29th, the Altos de Chavón campus will also have Continued Education and Chavón Kids and Teens.
