Johnny Villarreal

Johnny Villarreal is a collaborator, visual artist, technologist, designer, and educator. He struggled to find a solid connection to his education until he switched his focus to art. Since then he has been
exploring how creativity is connected to learning. His multimedia background combined with his vast community art education experience has enabled him to creatively empower people of various interest and abilities. Whether he’s painting, doodling, editing, designing, guiding, or working on the social fabric, Johnny is happiest when those around him are doing what they do best.

Johnny has an amazing and loving wife, an excitable Chihuahua, a big, sweet, white cat with sharp, sharp claws, and three chickens. His favorite shape is the octagon, he loves gesture drawing, and he doesn’t believe in coincidences.
