Artist John Aaron studied at UC Davis with Robert Arneson and William Wylie. He says, “Bob was a mentor who encouraged me to be a rascal of an artist.”

John is also an author and peace advocate. He is internationally recognized for his contributions to his art forms and for his work as the founder of CHALK4PEACE, a global campaign to promote the arts by coordinating assemblies of young artist of all ages to draw their vision of peace in public and private spaces with sidewalk chalk as a scheduled worldwide event.

We are honored that John is a participating artist in Sheltered.
