It could be said that Jill Gomas Faison was destined to become an art teacher from the moment she picked up her first crayon.
Jill’s father, Ralph Gomas — a life-long art educator who understood the powerful impact art experiences could have on a young person — made sure there were always plenty of art materials around the house for she and her little sister to explore.
