In April I hosted “The Art of Silliness,” an online class where I created daily worksheets (3rd-grade style) for participants to print and fill out… the emphasis was on fun drawing exercises, but we also wrote poems, did puzzles and generally had a silly time! We even made up our own language, “Fleep!”

One of the Fleep words created was “troglet,” which many participants defined as “a baby trog.” So then I had people draw their idea of what a trog was, and the “winner” would receive their trog “reinterpreted” by me!

Michelle (age 6) was the winner and she will receive the above painting. Here is her drawing:

Isn’t it just so sweet? It even has a violin in order to communicate…

If you missed the first class, don’t worry… I’m doing a “Silliness II” online class in September/October 2010… details to come soon!
