Mr. Eric Danenberg

About: I’m originally from Pittsburgh. I’m an avid gardener, hiker, science fiction enthusiast, and student of eastern philosophy. I’m also co-parent to a very fluffy, adorable Bichon Frise.
 
Education: I hold a BFA in Painting from Syracuse University, and an MFA in Film Production from USC where I was awarded graduate assistantships. At Syracuse, I earned a Student Academy Award nomination as crew (animation and background painting) on a nationally recognized animated short. I’ve also done STEAM training, and coursework towards an Education Specialist Credential: Mild/Moderate Disabilities.
 
How long you have been teaching: I’ve been teaching elementary, middle school and high school art since 2004.
 
How long you have been at Ribet: Since 2019.
 
Your favorite part about Ribet: The school is a “melting pot “of nationalities – students literally come from all over the world to attend Ribet.
