Because the communities surrounding Lake Atitlán live mostly in poverty and traditional economic activities have been on the decline. These communities need alternative solutions to their problems: mainly lack of development opportunities.

Pintando Santa Catarina Palopó was born because we are convinced that art can bring people together, it can create a sense of belonging, and it can power economies at a local level. Simply stated, art can be an engine for sustainable progress.

We don’t want to just create beautiful towns; we want to create successful, productive ones. Details such as the facades of buildings and houses can greatly improve the reality of a community and its members.

We are transforming the town of Santa Catarina Palopó into a cultural destination by painting it’s 850 houses, thereby creating a stronger feeling of pride and belonging, a racting investment, and creating new job opportunities.
