Mr. Juan T. Parker
My appreciation and interest in art came at about the age of five when I began to use color crayons, pencils, and finger-paints. As I got older, I began to draw with pen and ink, oil pastels, color pencils, and pasted chalk and then to paint with acrylics. I attended Hennepin Junior College, transferred to Hennepin Technical School for commercial art, and got an associate degree. I have been commissioned to do several murals and art pieces, and I have participated in art shows and illustrated several children’s books. I teach art through St. Paul Community Ed (ages 6-7), Eastside Council at Cambric High Rise, and Young Rembrandts after school. I want my art to inspire plus make a difference in this world.
