“Through teaching Melissa hopes to impact the lives of others through the use of clay”
Melissa began to fall in love with clay in the fall of 2013 by taking Intro to Ceramics and Intermediate Ceramics with Ron Gallas at St. Olaf College. Melissa has worked in the St. Olaf ceramic studio as a studio worker and teacher’s assistant. In addition, Melissa teaches clay classes at the Paradise Center for the Arts, The Northfield Arts Guild and Northern Clay Center. Through teaching she hopes to impact lives through the use of clay.
In the future, she would like to open a farm and art center that serves many different people.
