Welcome to the Pandemic Survival Guide for the Clay Obsessed! Since I have sooo much time on my hands right now, I figured why not jazz it up a bit! Each week I will share links to a few different websites, organizations, and resources that are all things clay! I might also smatter in a few general art resources as well!
Feel free to share these emails with your classes or communities as well. We could all use a little creative pick-me-up right now.
Now, without further ado, the links for the week!
NCECA is still on...kinda sorta
If you aren't on Instagram, now is a good time to join! Some of the demo artists and speakers will still be giving their talks just through Instagram Live. Below is a link to NCECA's page to follow all of the artists that will be sharing each day.
