For 16 years, founding director of Story Tapestries, Arianna Ross has performed and taught across the United States in festivals, concert halls, colleges, libraries, schools, and community centers.
So, after all this time fully immersed in the arts, Arianna is able to confidently jump into sharing and growing the work of Story Tapestries. We started the 2014-15 school year off with a bang- securing over thirty residencies throughout Maryland, Virginia, D.C., North Carolina, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and Florida. AND we continue to work to grow this list every day! We’re passionate about bringing our programming to individuals and their communities around the country.
In addition to leading residencies and our organization, Arianna is attending conferences around the country. She recently attended and showcased at the Performing Arts Exchange in Atlanta, and participated in the prestigious Retreat for National Teaching Artists at the Kennedy Center . The retreat gave Arianna an opportunity to work with fellow Master Teaching Artists to sharpen her knowledge of STEAM best practices, National Core Arts Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. The information gained during this retreat is spreading through the Story Tapestries team and inspiring some very exciting future programming plans!
