My name is Justin Wischik. I am a Native New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I graduated from Brooklyn College with a B.A. in studio art and an M.A. In Art Education two years later. Upon graduation I began working in Brooklyn College as a College Advisor while substituting in the New York City public school system including Lyons Community School.
This year will be my first year as a full-time Lyons staff member teaching 7th grade art/field studies. My plan is to create opportunities for children to learn about themselves and their experiences through the process of artmaking. Besides art teaching I create my own art in a variety of mediums and processes ranging from graphic design to painting. I look forward to this opportunity to teach in Lyons and can't wait to make some amazing art with the kids.
