India Johnston is Ben Franklin Artist of the Month


Easton High Senior India Johnston was  selected as the Ben Franklin Artist of the Month for November 2018.  India was chosen by Mr. Jonathan Crist, Easton High Art Teacher, for her exceptional still life drawings.

L-R: Dr. Kelly Griffith, Superintendent of Schools; Jonathan Crist, Easton High Art Teacher; India Johnston, and Mary-Ann Milligan, Owner, Ben Franklin Crafts.

“I selected India’s work because of her ability to recognize human figures and develop her own approach to accurately representing those figures in her drawings,” said Crist.  “I also wanted to recognize her because she does such an awesome job helping my students that are just learning.”

Mary-Ann Milligan from Ben Franklin presented India with a special gift from the store in recognition of the award. “We really enjoy sponsoring this award for the outstanding art students at Easton High,” said Mrs. Milligan.  “It has been so rewarding for us to see their work and to hear about their exciting plans for the future!”
