Each year, thanks to the generosity of artist Marion Cilker, San Jose State University and the Santa Clara County Office of Education host two days of inspiration for both pre-service and in-service arts educators. KQED will be there to present a workshop about KQED Art School, and other presenters include SFMOMA, AXIS Dance, and TheaterWorks of Silicon Valley.
Infographics can be useful tools whenever you are trying to convey information with a strong visual approach. Infographics are especially good at making numerical data easy to see and understand. By creating an infographic, your information can take on a life, tell a story, and make a more persuasive argument, which is why you encounter infographics in all kinds of situations from advertising and marketing to educational presentations and publications. It used to take a lot of work and graphic design know-how to make effective infographics, but now there are a number of easy to use, mostly free or low cost online tools that you can use to jump into making your own infographics right away.
