A Word About Facebook

Hi Everyone!

Over the past 6 years we have hosted our forums Facebook for two main reasons: it has provided a space for a community of artists to learn, collaborate, grow and enjoy each other, and it has been accessible to everyone around the world and is easy to use.

However, we also recognize that Facebook is more than just an objective platform and is controlled by people who have abused their power through breaches of privacy and even ethical standards.

This puts us in a difficult position because, while we do not support the leaders of Facebook, we would never want to exclude the users that rely on this platform as a method to connect and communicate. For that reason, are working on creating our own custom community app that provides security and is easy to use for everyone.

We hope to have this ready to go early in 2021. Please be patient with us as we make this change.

Carla and Steve

Art Prompts PDF: A Creative Care Package! (Free)

https://www.carlasonheim.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/CSP_ArtPrompts-2.pdf

 

Hi everyone!

Steve and I recently sent an email out to our teachers asking for ideas to get through these next strange months. We loved Kara Kramer’s idea of a downloadable PDF of teacher’s art prompts, so we did it!

Here is a 40-page “Creative Care Package” from 12 of us! Each teacher created 2-5 pages.

CSP_ArtPrompts

 

You can print it out (many pages are meant to be drawn on), or just keep it online and do the prompts in your sketchbooks.

Please feel free to share widely… use in your classrooms… and share your pages on the Carla Sonheim Presents Facebook Group!

Thank you!

Please take good care,!

xoxo

Carla Sonheim
