Painting community in Guatemala

The painting community in Guatemala is non-existent. There are very few opportunities for an
artist to make their name known in the country since there is no appreciation for paintings. Most
emerging painters choose to leave Guatemala to study elsewhere. Most of them don’t end up
coming back. I am one of these artists, I don’t plan on ever living in Guatemala because of the
lack of opportunity for artists.
I have come up with a few ideas to enhance the art community in Guatemala to allow these
emerging artists to embrace their country and share their work.
