Ceramics instructor Jeanette Nelson has never shied away from getting her hands dirty.
“I loved playing in the mud as a kid and I never stopped,” said Nelson during a recent adult ceramics class she teaches at the Geneva Community Center.
Nelson, who earned her bachelor’s degree in art from San Jose State and who for years worked in Sedona, Ariz. with schoolchildren, is passionate about clay and enjoys sharing that love with others. In Geneva she has taught classes to children and adults alike at the St. Peter’s Arts Academy and the Geneva Community Center.
It’s a therapeutic activity for many.
