Artist Statement

As an art major at UMass Boston, Gail took a few semesters of ceramics at Massachusetts College of Art. After attaining an Art Education Certification for grades K-12 at Mass. Art she has been teaching elementary grade children art, crafts and craft art at an after-school program for the past 26 years. A large ongoing part of her work with her students has been ceramics and in particular the potter’s wheel. “It is a good feeling to know I’ve helped facilitate the children’s experience with a variety of visual art and especially the potter’s wheel so they can take away an appreciation of art and craft art and maybe go on to further their ceramic knowledge and abilities in the future.”

Gail is pleased to now pursue and develop her own ceramic passion at MBACC.
