Rick BlaneArt Teacher

Department: Art

Years at Tapestry: 9

Teaching philosophy/motto:  I want students to look at the world around them with an artistic lens. Art is everywhere, from the food you eat to the shoes on your feet. Art is life.

“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” ~Kurt Vonnegut 

Favorite thing about working at Tapestry:

My favorite things about Tapestry is the comradery and relationships that I have with my colleagues. It helps having such an amazing staff when the going gets tough. Also one of my favorite things about Tapestry has to be Crew. Seeing my current students’ academic progress and confidence grow and keeping in touch with former Crew members long after graduation is something I really do love about this school. Building positive relationships amongst staff and students is a priority here at Tapestry. #WeAreCrew
