Presenter, Joan Oates Institute

Lisa Fisher Johnson received her M.F.A. from The New York Academy of Art, and teaches painting, drawing, and sculpture, centered in classical techniques. As part of a PIA grant, she was artist-in-residence for the sixth-grade class at Robious Middle School in Chesterfield, VA. At Robious, all 400 students and teachers created sketchbooks and recorded research in them for an entire year while we canoed, kayaked, visited the museum, and created a student-designed permanent installation of art for the school.
