Hi, my name is Luis, i live in a town called Lobitos in the north of Peru. Here you can find beautiful beaches with amazing waves for surfing, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and very good food in a very calm place. We are currently making an Art Residency / Art Studio for the people in the community and tourists. Here they can be able to develop different art skills and share a good time with local people (nice meals, surftrips, bonfires, etc). Its very important for us to motivate the kids from the community to develop their art skills (drawing, painting, etc) and also paint murals in the town between this kids/teenagers and the tourist.
The Art Studio have lots of materials (fine pens, oils, acrylics, pencils, colours, watercolours, pastels, etc) that are available to everyone that want to do some art. It's located on a Hostel /house from local people in the New Lobitos neighbourhood and it have lots of rooms, a kitchen, terrace, and bathrooms for the people living in there. There is a very friendly atmosphere, where you can share with the local teens the best surfing spots and things to do in this wonderful place!

The unique experience the traveller is going to have with us its that this is a local project, and its going to live with true Lobitean people. Here they can find about history, tradition, peruvian food, and met the best places of the locality. They can also practice and learn spanish or other languages from people from other countries staying at the house.
We want a volunteers that can help us to remodel the Art studio, also maintenance and management of the Art Studio. Someone with plumber, carpenter and fixing skills would be amazing.
