Faculty Advisor: Ms. Tauro
PACE Ceramics Art class & after school weekly Ceramics Club is directed by Ms. Gina Tauro. She offers students a focused & welcoming atmosphere with this historical medium.
Here PACE students are introduced to the challenges of working with clay, as well as to materials, tools, & nomenclature. They are encouraged to experiment with techniques after demonstrating mastery of basic hand building techniques: pinch pot, coil building, & slab construction. Individuals then fire & glaze their ware to enhance designs. Artists explore by combining techniques to create decorative & functional ceramic artworks.
Gina Tauro brings a deep respect and enthusiasm for ceramics with decades of experience to teaching & to managing the studio. She holds a BFA in Ceramics from SUNY New Paltz.
