the art of silliness!
O.k. this is cool. Carla Sonheim (a teacher from Artfest) is teaching an online workshop! I went to check out her blog late Saturday night and read about this "Art of Silliness" workshop...
that's it, paypal...and...I'm in.
Silliness workshop runs the entire month of April...Carla emails everyone signed up each day with a new exercise to get the creative juices flowing. Cool thing is you can start late like I did and the exercises are available to download and print at your own leisure till June 30th...my kinda teacher, cause sometimes I procrastinate, even the good stuff.
yesterday's exercise above...you had to try and get at least six of the elements drawn into the picture, then color with marker or colored pencils...(woo hoo crayola markers) I managed all 10 words; cow,hands, keys, bees, hat, sheep, moon, toothbrush,fork and elephant. The sheep almost didn't make it, but I squeezed her in on the front of the circus car, she even scored a hula-hoop. Do you see any hidden doo-dads? This is fun stuff. If you don't know who Carla is you should introduce yourself to her blog and her forthcoming book!
I most certainly will be purchasing Carla's book and taking her workshop at Artfest next year.
