"Some of you know that I've traveled on several occasions with Xela AID, which provides critically needed services to the Mayan people of Guatemala. I'm writing to invite you to join me next summer to paint and to serve in one of the most colorful and interesting cultural regions of the world! This trip will take us to Antigua, the breathtaking colonial capital city of old Guatemala, where we can choose to paint and sight-see only or you can also take advantage of one-on-one Spanish lessons (included) at a beautiful villa." – Kevin
Kevin's fortunately found his gift early in life. When he was seven years old he knew he would be an artist. Art has opened many doors for a fulfilling life. He loves teaching, by giving back and sharing art to both adults and now especially to underprivileged children around the world. Perhaps Kevin will spark a child's passion that will light their way for life. Volunteering with Xela Aid was the inspiration for Kevin founding Art Ambassador for a Colorful World, both non-profit organizations.
Join Kevin on a joint Xela AID and Art Ambassador trip filled with life changing moments. We will have many group activity options and time to paint on your free days. Antigua, Guatemala is among the best-conserved colonial cities in the world. It is a busy town full of colonial architecture and beautiful surroundings. The center of Antigua is under UNESCO World Heritage protection. The designation was based on the integrity of its 16th-century layout and the physical integrity of the buildings in the historic center. You may get the feeling time might have stopped some 300 years ago. Colonial history is always present in Antigua Guatemala. It combines with an array of cultural activities. These include art galleries and exhibits, performing arts, popular arts, films, forums, restaurants, cafes, and cultural tourism in general. Be ready to take hundreds of photos of this inspiring country and be prepared to experience Guatemala in a very unique way.
The week after visiting Antigua the group will travel to a small village, San Martin where Xela aid has worked with for over twenty-five years. You have the option to paint and or volunteer with Xela aid projects. You will be welcomed like family. The accommodations are clean, safe and comfortable. You will have all of your transportation included. It will be without instruction but Kevin will surely offer some evening group critiques for free.
"The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to give it away."
