I am Briyana Negrette a Latin American Artist, I Focus on Community based arts and enrichment programs, I am an Art Teacher for the OC Children Therapeutic Art Center, one of the Lead Artist for the Santa Ana Artist Coalition Mural Project for 2016 and a Supporting Artist for the "Emiglio Gateway to Art" Mural Project for OCCA -Orange County Center of Contemporary Arts. The Art focusses on Education and Artistic voice for the Community.
I Have the Opportunity to work on an even greater and bigger project in Mexico as an apprentice to a great Chicano Muralist who is a big help, and inspiration to my artistic career. I met Carlos Callejo when I was at Santa Ana College I Had helped him with his Mural Project and exhibition in early 2015. He has been the greatest teacher.
The project in Mexico is a Restoration Project on a Diego Rivera Mural and Does not fund me as an individual artist, I am there for the experience of a life time, and unfortunately it is not free for me to work on this project, I need support and help.
The Support Provides secure lodging at a hotel and some money to eat, I will truly be a starving artist without this help.
