Sabrina Chacon-BarajasFacultyYouth Programs
Sabrina Chacon-Barajas graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a BA in Studio Art and is currently working on her M.Ed at UW Bothell. Her artwork incorporates multi-media art to represent the intersectional identity of being a woman of color from immigrant parents. Sabrina is a teaching artist that cares about representation in the classroom through the power of the arts. She centers her curriculum around anti-racist teaching practices and critical thinking. Sabrina speaks Spanish and empowers her students to speak and write in their language by being transparent in her experience as a first-generation person who is more comfortable with translanguaging meaning using Spanglish to communicate. Sabrina has taught with various art programs in the PNW such as REEL GRRLS, SAM, Gage Academy of the Arts, South Park Community Center, Ailey Camp, Pratt Fine Arts, and Centrum in Port Townsend. Sabrina has also presented and done workshops for Seattle Public Schools, Highline Public Schools and conferences like ITAC and the Bridge Conference.
