Dylan and his dream drawing
The drawing of a child sleeping in an armchair, with a dog upstairs, while dreaming of a game of chess, won a contest. He was chosen as one of the winners of the international art and chess competition Expochess. The drawing was made by Dylan Alba , who attends the “Albert Einstein” Digital Public School in St. Louis . Pride goes double, as the school was the only one invited by the organizing committee of Spain to represent Argentina.
To participate, Expochess asks the contestants to create a drawing or painting that combines art and chess. To do his work, he said Dylan— he was inspired by himself, his dog and his favorite game. The little one took second place at its level.
In addition to Dylan Alba, more than two hundred students of the “Einstein” made drawings, helped by their parents and teachers. All paintings were part of an internal expo, in which teachers selected average dozen to send to the pageant. Within that little choice was the play of Dylan’s art, the one that captivated Expochess judges.
Juan Carlos Lucero, member of the ULP Chess Program, said that Dylan is one of the most applied students at the time of play. And also very shy. “When they told us he had won, the whole institution was happy, for the school and for him,” Lucero explained.
In 2019, Expochess had an important participation: four continents were represented by fourteen countries. Thousands of drawings came from different countries, bringing art and chess closer to children between 6 and 14 years old; combining art and chess as tools for inclusion and social development.
