Mrs. Lisa Jones
I am in my seventeenth year as a high school teacher and am excited to be in my sixth year in Plano ISD at Plano Senior High School. It's been a strange calendar year, and this school year promises to be no different. One of my favorite proverbs is "Necessity is the mother of invention". There is potential for unprecedented creativity this year...I can't wait to see the art that's going to be created!
After graduating from high school in Arlington, I earned my BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin (Hook 'Em Horns!) and later my AA in Animation and Multi-Media from The Art Insitute of Dallas. I worked for several years as a web designer and graphic artist outside of Washington DC and in Dallas before coming to my senses and becoming an art teacher.
I live with my husband, teenaged daughter, and dog named Comet. Although I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to art media, my current passions are ceramics and casting in plaster & resins. I'm looking forward to sharing "Funky Fridays" and the love of a mess in the pursuit of artistic expression with my students; and, seeing their individual and collective growth in confidence, creativity, and craft.
