Artist Carla Sonheim was featured in a newsletter, that was published on December 19, 2016. If you didn’t get a chance to read it in December, you can see it here.

Carla offers online homeschool art classes – and her books are wonderful! Plus, she even offers free tutorials and drawing assignments.  You might want to check them out!

Carla sent us a copy of her book, The Art of Silliness, and we thought we’d share it with you.  If you click on this link, you can see all her books – they sure are inviting!  They make you feel like you can draw!  I don’t know about you….but this is appealing to me…because I’ve never felt like I could draw anything….ever!   Now, I think there might be hope!  🙂




The Art of Silliness: A Creativity Book for Everyone

Perigee Books (November 2012)

From the back cover:
A popular teacher and illustrator shares quirky, lively, interactive exercises to awaken the creative spirit in anyone.

Carla Sonheim is an illustrator and creativity workshop instructor who’s beloved for her innovative projects and techniques designed to help anyone discover a more spontaneous, playful approach to creating. The goal: to get participants simply to play, for as little as ten minutes a day, with pen and paper, thoughts and images. It’s amazing to discover how a shot of silliness—creating like a kid does for just ten minutes—can positively inspire your outlook, your “real work,” and more.

Fully interactive and illustrated with Carla’s charming drawings throughout, The Art of Silliness will delight the child in everyone.
