Instructor Bio:

Chelsi Hanley grew up in Lowell Massachusetts, currently a city with a vastly growing art community.  Attending Lowell High School from 2004-2008, she discovered a fast connection and love for ceramics. She carried this love to college where she pursued a degree in Fine Arts.

At the University of Massachusetts in Lowell from 2008 to 2013,  she primarily concentrated in dark room photography, sculpture, and ceramics.  Part of the reason she acquired the liking for these three mediums was the hands on connection she could make with the material.

Also the art teacher at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell, Chelsi helped youth gain inspiration for their art and life between 2011 and 2014.  She was also the manager of the Ceramic Studio for bit of time before opening up her own business here in Lowell. Currently she is the owner of the Pottery Mill as well as a middle school art teacher in the city of Lawrence, MA.
