“Working with a diverse student population is the best part of my job,” says art teacher Bruce Weiner. A talented ceramic artist, Bruce earned both his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees from the Temple University Tyler School of Art. He also studied sculpture and painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
Bruce has been a member of the Wyncote faculty since 1980. Bruce also studied at the Moravian Tile Works in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. At the Moravian Tile Works, he learned the techniques of Henry Mercer’s tile design and production, and completed research on the 19th Century Arts and Craft Movement in America. The techniques Bruce learned at the Tile Works have been incorporated into his art curriculum at Wyncote, where students now learn to design, manufacture, and produce their own tiles and mosaics.
In addition to teaching at Wyncote Academy, Bruce is also a locally exhibiting artist with several works in private collections. During his career as an artist, he also worked with The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, the Cheltenham Art Center, and the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Science.
Bruce and his wife, Caroline, Wyncote Academy’s language arts teacher, reside in Abington with their two daughters.
