Ellen Gunnell
Ellen Gunnell is a transplant from a small resort town in Michigan.  She has always had a passion for anything "art" and began college as an art history major.  While finishing up an AA degree in 1988 at Mesa Community College, an instructor suggested a ceramics class - since then there is always clay in the Gunnell household.  In 1996, after her children were all in school, Ellen took a part time job as an art educator at the Arizona Museum for Youth. One year later, in 1997 she began teaching kids clay classes at the MAC and has met and enjoyed working with many talented children.
