New Talent Search - Congrats to our students!


By Chelsea Dozier
In exchange for translation and web site work from ADE, Colinas del Poás gave ADE high school free entrance to a New Talent Art Seminar that included art demonstrations and activites by the beautiful pond, painting materials and space to explore and create, and a delicious hot lunch. In addition to our students, there were two elementary schools, parents, serious artists and lots of artists at heart. Congrats to our three students who won awards in the youth category. Check out their paintings on display at the Poas Chamber of Tourism this month.

ADE's zero down model for development looks to local and international organizations to colaborate in bringing programs to the community. If you have a talent or know of someone to share with our youth please contact us! By giving our future opportunites to explore and express themselves, we might be see one day the next Monet, Salvador Dalí, Picasso, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo?

Congrats to:
1. Nathan ADE High School
2. Gabriela ADE High School
3. Daniela ADE High School

Learning about watercolors and primary colors under
a light rain from a university art student




Learning about pastels, three dimensional shading,
perspective, and shadows from a university art student
First place winner (both paintings) for the "rotating
dimensional creativity and symmetry pattern" and the
other for the "simplicity and brilliance of color and
painting design." We did not understand fully all the
terminology and analysis from the judges as to why he
won but it seems to us that in kids art is natural and
innately understood. The lovely pink flower -
a close contender!
Creativity of having used tape to create shapes
Unfinished work of ingenuity using fingers and not a
conventional brush
