On February 22nd Romero Britto welcomed the Little Dreams Foundation to his Wynwood studio for a colorful paint party. Each ‘Little Dreamer’ not only had their very own personal canvas but they each had the once-in-a-lifetime experience to paint with the artist himself. Guests were also treated to energetic tunes with a special performance by WYK (What You Know). Founded in 2000 by Orianne and Phil Collins, its mission is to fulfill the dreams of young aspiring talents without financial means to achieve their goals.
