The Abraham School Art exhibit was open in the Altos de Chavón art gallery from Friday May 25th through to Monday June 4th and was fabulous! Although the exhibit has now sadly closed, here we bring you photos of all the excellent pieces of artwork presented by each and every student of the Abraham Lincoln School! The annual Abraham Lincoln School art exhibit was officially inaugurated on Friday May 25th among the joyous laughter and bubbly excitement of the young artists of the future of the school and their proud parents and teachers, as well as a group of keen Casa de Campo art aficionados who vere miss an opening of a new exhibit at the gallery (myself included!) Amongst the crowd admiring the impressive collection of art work, we found Miss Hughes, a lower school teacher at the school who proudly showed us the “mixed-up” creations of her class – imaginative drawings of creatures such as the “Crabatake” by Herdel – a mix of a crab, bat and a snake and the “Deerbeechickat” by Fernando – a combination of a deer, bee, chicken and a rat!

Also in attendance at the show were Mr Harry Magee, Headmaster at the Abraham Lincoln School, who talked of the “tremendous artistic talent which our students demonstrate” whilst proudly showing off the show and Miss Deborah Stewart, Head of Primary School Art, who in Harry’s words “did a fantastic job of coordinating and displaying the students’ work.” And for the 7th year running, Mr. James Adams, Head of Secondary School Art presented the remarkable mature and sophisticated artwork of the school’s older pupils.

“I’m impressed with the high level of creativity, the development and realisation of exciting ideas, and the high level of technique displayed by all of the students in their work this year.” — Mr. James Adams, Head of Secondary School Art at the Abraham Lincoln School
