Faculty Shot

Jill Gomas Faison

Art is my passion, and I have been involved in the arts my entire life. As an educator for the past 18 years, I have seen firsthand how the integration of meaningful art experiences into existing classroom curriculum can consistently lead to advancements in student learning and achievement.

Areas such as critical thinking, problem solving, authentic learning, teamwork, and intrinsic motivation, are all enhanced when art becomes a systematic part of the classroom landscape. For this reason, I’m so enthusiastic about showing other teachers – regardless of their own art backgrounds – how easy it can be to incorporate this simple yet profound element into the curriculum they are already teaching – with spectacular results!
