The Santa Clara County Arts Education Initiative

Mission: Artspiration is committed to shared leadership in advocating, empowering, and supporting sustainable arts education to develop the creative capacity of each student and educator in Santa Clara County public schools.

Partnering with public schools, arts organizations, and the greater community to foster equitable and transformative education through the Arts.


Professional Development 

Professional development for teachers is our top priority.  There are many opportunities throughout the year, including workshops and conferences. Artspiration co-sponsors two arts conferences annually with San Jose State University and Montalvo Arts.

Custom professional development is also available from the Artspiration Team and our Professional Experts. We can tailor make professional development to meet your subject-specific course like music, drama, theater, dance, visual arts, and media arts, a combination of all five arts disciplines, or model arts integration.  

We strive to promote topics of The 4 C's in the Arts classroom, technology integration, Common Core State Standards, the National Core Arts Standards, and EdLeader 21 in all our VAPA professional development.​
