In May 2011, Alicia graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with her BFA in Illustration and a Creative Writing Minor. In May 2013, she graduated from Lesley University with an MEd in Community Arts, Visual Arts Concentration.Her studies and work as an art educator in both museum and classroom settings have enabled her to organize and carry out community arts projects such as The Norman Rockwell Photovoice Project (Norman Rockwell Museum, December 2011: http://nrphotovoice.blogspot.com/).Her Graduate Thesis Project involved creating a children’s book about creativity based on her own family research an interviews. (See “Family Creativity” in the “Children’s Books” section of her Illustrator Portfolio site: asoosart.wix.com/portfolio/, and her Thesis Research Blog at arsoos.tumblr.com/.) She hopes her illustration works positively to undermine and replace negative media messages, and that her education work will improve the ways we currently see the world and ourselves.
