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!

Even though we can't meet in person, we're going to have a Great Retreat!
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 😉
We were so fortunate to have so many prizes to share with our lucky attendees.
Our goodie bags were filled with many samples of clays from Polyform, Apoxie Sculpt, clay and cutters from Makin's, and generous coupons from Makin's, Sculpey, Marvelous Molds, ComposiMold and Craftcast.
They were generous and also donated items for our raffle. Other donations were given by R J Crafts and many of the attendees. Thanks to all of you for making this such a successful and fun retreat!
This year we finally got to go on our Garden Walk. It did not disappoint! Connecticut College has so many beautiful gardens and plantings all over the campus. This year Donna Panciera brought us to the Carolina Black Garden.
Below are some pictures we took. What a beautiful and inspiring garden! Thank you, Donna!
The Booth Library in Newtown has an exhibit of polymer clay art with items on display by Tracy VanBuskirk and Lisa Procaccini. BOH are there too!
The exhibit will be in place thru the end of May. Come visit if you find yourself in the area.
