Juana Alicia says: “I am a muralist, printmaker, educator, activist and painter who loves to draw. I have been teaching for thirty years, working in many areas of education, from community organizing to migrant and bilingual education to arts education, from kindergarten to graduate school levels. Currently I am full-time faculty at Berkeley City College, where I direct a public art program called True Colors.
I feel that it is my responsibility as an artist to be an activist for social justice, human rights and environmental health, and I see the work of parenting and teaching akin to being an artist. I began working as an artist in my teens, coming of age in the human rights movements that included the United Farm Workers and that protested the war in Vietnam.”
