On October 17, employees
Yolanda Valenzuela and Araceli Arias took 15 Cañada College students to the
Mission District of San Francisco to learn about the history of muralism and
experience a walking mural tour in the neighborhood. The history lesson and mural walk was led by
Patricia Rose, a muralist who works with the Precita Eyes Mural Arts Center,
which is located in the Mission District.
Patricia had a wealth
of knowledge and enthusiasm to share with students. The murals were beautiful and rich in meaning
and messages. The group determined that
that the art will serve as an inspiration for the mural that is being designed
and painted on campus in spring 2019.
Please contact Yolanda Valenzuela (email@example.com) or Julie Carey
(firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to participate in the designing process of
the Cañada College campus mural.
