Clay ConneCTion ’22

LINE – A Worksheet For Creativity

Some Line Examples

Helen Wyland-Malchow has been teaching the guild design elements at the Zoom guild meetings..
She started with LINE. Download the Worksheet here.  (was sent out with the June NAN).
She went over different elements/attributes of Line.

Take something you love and represent it as LINE and do the exercises on the worksheet. The pictures are examples that Helen showed to explain the different concepts. Play with it and have some fun!

We will share our worksheets at the ConneCTion Challenge Zoom meeting on July 3.
Looking forward to seeing all we do!

"The Horizontal and Vertical Ovals show the Contrast between the Straight Static Lines and the Movement at the Ends Created by the Curvilinear Lines" ~Helen

"When you feel the urge to mindlessly scroll through Facebook, take out the worksheet and play with the exercises" ~ Carole

Virtual Meetings

Virtual Meetings until Further Notice

We will be hosting our guild meetings via Zoom until further notice.
The link, meeting ID, and password will be in the newsletter that will be emailed out a few days prior to the meeting.
Hope to see you there!

And (for those like me who are a little vain) here is a zoom youtube link from Libby that has good lighting tips: https://youtube/ACNGhPKnmok 

Also another tip - (I'm SO Vain!!!!...) You can go to Zoom -> Preferences -> Video and in "My Video you can check "Touch up my appearance" which softens up everything 😉
