Since 1965, art educator members of the California Art Education Association have provided leadership that has shaped the field of research and practice in art education and positioned CAEA as the premier professional community for our field in California. CAEA is committed to supporting art educators in their quest to excel as leaders. The CAEA state, regional, and area conferences, special programs, and events explore the multifaceted roles of the art educator through the prism of knowledge, understanding, and leadership.

SFMOMA, Art21, & CAEA Northern Area Event

CAEA Northern Area is happy to share this collaborative event with SFMOMA and Art 21. The event will take place at SFMOMA on Saturday March 23 from 10 am - 1:30 pm. The event will include a screening of Bay Area artists featured on Art 21, followed by a Question and Answer session with Barry McGee.

Barry McGee is a lauded and much-respected cult figure in a bi-coastal subculture that comprises skaters, graffiti artists, and West Coast surfers. Barry McGee was born in 1966 in California, where he continues to live and work. In 1991, he received a BFA in painting and printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute. His drawings, paintings, and mixed-media installations take their inspiration from contemporary urban culture, incorporating elements such as empty bottles and spray-paint cans, tagged signs, wrenches, and scrap wood or metal.

Following the Screening and Q&A, CAEA members will be able to participate in a hands-on workshop inspired by McGee’s work. This workshop is only available to CAEA Members.

This will be a great day to enjoy the museum, listen and learn from contemporary Bay Area artists, and spend some time creating together! Space is limited… sign up ASAP!
