Last Friday the 29th of May, at 7pm the annual art exhibit was opened. The inauguration was celebrated by a mixed group of proud teachers and parents, joined by the studendts of the Abraham Lincoln School, who were thrilled to be showing off their art work. The standard and quality of work on display was such that the everyone who went to see it were very pleasantly surprised and impressed that the work was of such high quality – for many pieces it was difficult to believe that it had been produced by high school students.
There was a huge variety of art work, paintings and drawings in different styles, clay sculptures of lamps, hands and masks, as well as more abstract sculptures made of a mix of different materials. The younger students had produced some delightful work, including some very impressive self-portraits, whilst the older students had a stunning range of paintings and sculptures on display, all the work clearly displaying a real talent which I hope will continue to be developed in the future.
The exhibit is only open for one week, so if you missed the opening on Friday, make sure you go and take a look this week – you won’t be disappointed!
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.
