THE ALTOS DE CHAVÓN CULTURAL CENTER FOUNDATION


ALTOS DE CHAVÓN: OPPORTUNITIES FOR VISITING STUDENTS The Altos de Chavón School of Design, a pioneer in the teaching of art and design in the Dominican Republic, is an educational center with worldwide impact. Founded in 1983 with the aim of satisfying the country’s growing commercial and industrial demands, The School offers programs of study, of both long and short duration, in the areas of communication design, fashion design, fine arts, illustration, digital design, interior design, photography, film production, and architecture. World-renowned Variety Magazine recently ranked Chavón as one of the “Stellar Film Schools in 2017.” Through the more than 2,000 graduates from its two-year college-level programs and 15,000 participants in its short courses, The School has had an impact on the world of design both nationally and internationally. In 2006, the New York publication V Magazine named The Altos de Chavón School of Design “one of the 13 best design schools in the world”.


THE CAMPUS AT ALTOS DE CHAVÓN Located in the southeast of the Dominican Republic, in a natural setting bordered by the winding Chavón River and with views of the mountains to the north, the village of Altos de Chavón was founded, in 1976, as a dynamic center for art in many disciplines. The location of The School of Design in this unique site offers students peace and seclusion and promotes intense immersion in educational pursuits, whether in exchange programs or for certificates at the Associate Degree level. The School’s Altos de Chavón campus consists of nine classrooms, a screening room, a computer lab, a 12,000-volume library, an exhibition gallery, and student and faculty housing. It is also adjacent to the Regional Archaeological Museum and the Davidoff Artist in Residency studios. The brick and coral-stone buildings of Altos de Chavón house art studios, crafts workshops, galleries, stores, and restaurants. Painters, designers, artisans, writers, and musicians come to Chavón from different parts of the world to create, teach, and learn.

Under the 2+2 Affiliation Program, students who graduate from Chavón’s college-level program may apply to the third year of their specialty in Parsons, thereby gaining the opportunity to earn a Bachelor’s degree from one of the world’s most important institutions of art and design education.
