M.A.T., Teaching Art and Design Education, Rhode Island School of Design, B.S. Drawing and Painting, Biola University
Brian (“Hutch”) is excited to start in a new position at EPS during the 2014-2015 school year – Director of Fine and Performing Arts. Promoting the arts at EPS will be a major part of that role and he’ll also teach a few visual arts classes. Hutch grew up on the west coast but took a circuitous route before settling in the Pacific Northwest a few years ago – he has taught art in Thailand and in Massachusetts. Hutch taught art and design at an independent school in Tacoma prior to his start at Eastside Prep. “I was particularly drawn to EPS because of the collaborative nature of the community and the opportunity to become a leader in the arts. I’m very excited to work with the arts faculty to continue to build the fine and performing arts programs.” Hutch lives with his wife, young daughter and a grey hound named Gene Parmesan. In his spare time, Hutch enjoys working on his letterpress, painting, and spending a bit of time at a maker space playing with the laser cutter.
“These experiences have helped develop in me a passion for the Arts, a spirit of collaboration and creativity, and a strong desire to be part of a community. I look forward to serving the community at EPS with these gifts!”
