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.

Thank you for a wonderful journey! Your class freed me to draw from my imagination
and to let the images that are inside me come out onto paper. I didn’t know I could do it. Thanks so much.

I am not afraid anymore!

Don’t think, just join!

This was the best drawing experience of my life,

and I have taken a lot of classes! I learned many tools to make cool and fun art,
and tricks to get myself drawing and get the creative juices flowing if I get stuck.
Every artist should take this class at some point!

I feel like for the past month I’ve been able to hang out with a couple of new friends.
One of those new friends is you, Carla – and the other is the

kid in me who has been dormant for a while.

As a veteran of Carla’s classes, I know what a wonderful, inspiring teacher she is in person.
So, it was a delight (but not a surprise) to discover that her teaching talents translated
just as well to her online class. Carla helps her students release their inner critic, and

what emerges is a whimsy and freedom that makes for truly original artwork.

Each of us discover in her classes that we really are artists, and that our visual style is uniquely our own.
Thanks again, Carla, for another wonderful learning experience.

Thanks so much! I couldn’t have had a funner month of drawing. The best!
To anyone who is considering taking Silly 3 (if it happens; keep your fingers crossed):
*Drop everything and take it!*

It is so much fun you don’t realize that your drawing is improving in the process.

I think the key is Carla’s ability to make art fun.

While you’re doing the exercises, you aren’t worried about what you’re doing so much
as just enjoying the play, and before you know it, you’ve learned you can do something new.
Now I’ll take those new things and let them inform the future work I do.

I have been anxious for years about putting pencil to paper in the fear of drawing something silly
and here was a class positively encouraging me to do just that.
After the initial wariness and a few “this is just silly”! I loved it!

It really opened a door for me

which I have been wanting to walk through for ages. All the different little excercises work on so many levels.
I didn’t even realise this at the time as I was too busy feeling the creative enjoyment I felt when I was a little child
and no one criticized my work, least of all me.
