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.

As KQED Arts Education kicks off 2014, we are focusing on the work of artist Ala Ebtekar, who takes traditional Iranian painting techniques and mashes them up with his own visual culture, which is influenced by graffiti and hip hop. He is the newest artist featured on KQED Art School. Local educator Cecilia Garcia shared a project inspired by Ebtekar’s work that she did with her students at James Lick High School in San Jose. The idea for the project came about during a KQED workshop last summer presented in collaboration with di Rosa and Ebtekar.
