Painting Lemonade

The first set of paintings have been delivered. Here is a very short video showing just a few of the children receiving their paintings.



Painting Lemonade is a project where I paired up American high school art students with children in La Limonada. The American student paints a portrait for the Guatemalan student and these paintings are delivered to the children along with a brief letter from the American and a photo of themselves. I will be travelling down to La Limonada to deliver the last of these paintings and visit "La Escuelita" in April.
