Public television station KQED in the San Francisco Bay area offers super arts coverage and they maintain an excellent website, Spark. "Produced by KQED Public Television, Spark is about Bay Area artists and arts organizations -- it is a weekly television show, an educational outreach program and a Web site. More than a showcase for art objects and the artists who make them, Spark takes the audience inside the creative process to witness the challenges, opportunities and rewards of making art."
For art educators in California, you know that Spark in Education offers a wide range of in service training. For all the rest of us: "Each week one of the Spark stories is chosen to be the educational focus, and a corresponding educator guide is created." This week's installment includes a PDF of Jaime Guerrero: A Few Good Stories. This is a fabulous way to introduce the art of glass into the classroom.
