Feed Your Head

There are so many professional TAs trying to make a living in the freewheeling Bay Area that they've organized. Starting in September, Teaching Artists Organized (TAO), a new local service organization, will offer a three-part professional development series in Berkeley, California.

Teaching Artists Organized.

I love the name.

It’s like a wish.

@ Cal Shakes' rehearsal hall 701 Heinz in Berkeley (off Seventh and San Pablo) -- get directions.

* Saturday, Sept 12: PEDAGOGY SPEED DATING: Overviews and Introductions From Key Teaching Artist Schools of Practice for the TA in the know. * Keith Terry, of CrossPulse, opens the day with an interactive workshop on body music and kinesthetic movement. Presenters include: Arlene Schmaeff (Museum of Children's Art); Rica Anderson (Cal Performances); Sabrina Klein (creative education consulting); Dave Maier (Berkeley Rep School of Theatre); Tana Johnson (Alameda County Office of Education); Sarah Lenoue (Visual Thinking Strategies); Jill Randall (Shawl-Anderson Dance Studio).

For some reason, these sessions are not free. In fact, they cost money.

Also: Jefferson Airplane – White Rabbit
