Please join me for my next online drawing class:

The Art of Silliness 1 (Redux)

(Silly 1 Redux – a revamped repeat of the original session held in April 2010!)

(21 days/30 Worksheets/25 Bucks!)

September 28 – October 18, 2011

Here’s the scoop:

• Each day for three weeks you will receive an email from me with a url link to the new pdf worksheet, which you can download, print, and complete!

• Worksheets may include one (or more) of the following: drawing exercises (can’t draw? YES YOU CAN!), writing prompts, vocabulary words, drawing games, puzzles… (just to name a few). FUN!

• Here is a SAMPLE of a worksheet from the “The Art of Silliness 2” (Fall 2010):

(Non-threatening and easy!)

• Our goal: to get you to just PLAY, just 10 minutes a day, with pen and paper, thoughts and images. (You will be surprised how a shot of silliness like this will positively inform the other goings-on in your day, including your regular artwork.)

• Every handout will have an “Extra Credit” section, in case you want to spend MORE than 10 minutes that day creating like a kid.

• Speaking of kids… this is a perfect class to do together with your children!! Each household can download as many sheets as they like.

• TEACHERS!!!! If you do this online class, you are welcome to photocopy the worksheets for use in your classrooms.

• A password-protected blog dedicated to the class will be created and administered throughout the class and will be the place for you to post comments, questions, and/or links to your finished Activity Pages.

• A “Silly 1 Redux″ flickr site will be created so you can (optionally) share your worksheets, drawings, artwork, and enjoy and learn from the artwork of others.  (However, if you are shy about posting your art, I am always available to you to look at your work via email, if you like!)

• Prizes? Of course!!

• The class material will be up and available for download until “forever,” if for some reason you need to miss a day (or a couple of weeks).

• Here’s what people have said about the Silly Series so far:

“I want to say that your online Art of Silliness drawing workshop caused something of a paradigm shift in my perspective on drawing, more specifically, my ability to draw. I draw all the time now. No big deal, no worries, no “I’m not having fun this is too ugly”, none of that. I am now and forever more a person who draws. Because of you.”  — Jennifer W.

“The Best X 3: Best drawing class I’ve taken on-line or off-line. Best teacher who made drawing fun. Best time spent that brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart. — Judith W.

• I promise to make it fun. (Do you want to join me?)

Carla Sonheim, A.K.A. The Silly Queen:


P.S. Please note that I’ve changed the format slightly from previous silly sessions. You will still get the original 30 worksheets from Silly 1, but instead of having them drop over 30 days, there will be 21 worksheets in 21 days, and the extra 9 worksheets will be treated as “bonus” worksheets for you to work at your own pace/leisure.

And please write with any questions!!
