Update: 6:37PM CHILDREN of Dilkusha Girls Home today spent time to learn a new skill.

And this skill set included painting without the use of paint brush.

The girls were involved in painting classes with street artist Tote Gallardo who spent two hours with the girls teaching them to paint using their fingers.

“This is what I do for a living, and I share my talent with anyone who is interested in knowing how to paint,” Mr Gallardo said.

“I have been doing this for ages and for every country I visit, the first thing I look for is the orphanages or rehabilitation centres, cause I feel that it�s this people that needs a skill in order to earn money for a living.”

Mr Gallardo arrived in the country from Peru last week and is hoping to head to Tahiti later.
