Doug Wittnebel, Principal Design Director at Gensler (global architecture and design firm) in San Ramon, gave back to the San Ramon community by teaching first grade students how to draw on iPads at .

By utilizing technology to bring art back into the classroom, when in many public schools these funds are being cut, Gensler is hoping to raise awareness of the importance of art in schools.

The kindergarten and first grade classes at Quail Run Elementary are already using iPads for select activities, sharing six iPads per each class of 26-30 students.
