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.

We did see a lot of back and forth debating where students played the blame game.
