Todd Berman is a San Francisco artist who travels the world and his local community, sketchbook in hand. His art reflects the colorful eccentricity bound within moments and individuals; depicting scenes of people coming together to improve their surroundings.

He offers workshops about arts education for San Francisco's Department of Children, Youth, and their Families, is a museum educator for the Contemporary Jewish Mueseum, is coordinator of the Where Art Lives program for the San Francisco Arts Commission, and will soon be an instructor with the Integrated Learning Specialist Program.
