Pamela Campbell Smith
Pam entered her first art competition submitting a perspective drawing of the National Bank of Jackson at 9 years old! And as they say the rest is history. Pam completed her first BA degree with certification to teach high school art, second BA for Interior Design and third BA in Architecture. Pam and her husband Peter Smith opened their architecture practice in 1978 with projects from Maine to Houston. She founded CAMP ARCH-KID-TECH, a summer week- long architecture camp for children 12-17 in 1994. For her 50th birthday a friend suggested she take a Nantucket basket class offered at the DAA, and over the next few years she entered baskets in the Marshfield Fair crafts division and in 2010 to the DAA Midsummer Arts Show where she was awarded Best of Show for her Nantucket sewing basket. Pam has enjoyed teaching Nantucket basket classes, along with her sister Patty Campbell, at the DAA since 2008.

Don Whitney
Don has been throwing pots since taking a Community Ed class in St. Paul, MN in 1986. He was hooked from the beginning and maintained studio space throughout his corporate career. Eventually the isolation of throwing in his studio caused Don to explore teaching opportunities for adult wheel-throwing. He has been regularly teaching since 2007.  With the luxury of retirement, he is now able to focus on pottery.  His home studio is located in Hingham, MA on the South Shore of Boston.  He sells his pots from his Hingham studio and at local craft shows.
