37 years ago, the Altos de Chavón School of Design opened its doors to talented people who wanted to broaden their knowledge in the fine arts. This Friday, May 17th, the school will be celebrating its 35th graduation at the amphitheater.

This will be the second graduation for the Santo Domingo Campus, and the thirty-fifth for the La Romana campus and the very first of the new Film career that opened two years ago! Every student from the School of Design has been under the tutelage of excellent professors who have guided them throughout their technical careers, and who will no doubt remain advisors and sources of inspiration as they continue on their journeys.

Over sixty students will don togas and birretes (mortarboards) and mark a milestone in their lives, beginning a new chapter as art professionals. As they move on, we wish them a very successful future and will be proud to call them Chavoneros!

We know all students have worked hard day and night — through exciting, challenging, and sometimes stressful times, to complete projects and represent their art forms to the best of their abilities. The myriad of emotions and events over the last two years will culminate in a very rewarding graduation.

The exhibition of the La Romana Campus students is already up in the Altos de Chavón Gallery and will run through the weekend. It is an amazing display of youthful talent and cutting edge work; work that is both skilled and exuberant. The thesis work is a culmination of the student’s research and studio practice that has produced a stunning variety of imagery created with a vast array of materials and expertise. We highly encourage you to attend!
