Who is Amber Kane?
I”m an educator, textile designer, entrepreneur, and stellar day dreamer.
I received my Art Education degree from Messiah College, and earned my masters in Creativity Studies from Union Institute and University.
I taught high school Art for 8 years in the public school system, while running my textile design business on the side. while teaching I’ve learned that our schools are teaching creativity and dreams right out of our students, while developing an obsession for empty standards. my love for teaching, learning, and creativity spurred me to create The Unstandardized Standard .
In 2015 I resigned from my public school position and now teach online AP Art and Art History courses for PA Homeschoolers, work part time at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design, create one-0f-a-kind textiles and welcome all kinds of learners into my home studio.
I believe that you were born with amazing gifts, and I want to help you uncover and realize your true talents. a world full of people that know who they are and why they are here, is a world full of peace and purpose.
