day one of workshop

picasso dog...
we had to find an animal out of random brush strokes.
without picking up your pencil, draw a pig
without picking up your pen, draw an elephant
these are just a few of the exercises from day 1 of Carla Sonheim's workshop. www.carlasonheim.com

  4. Yippee! Yippee! I've got Carla's Imaginary Creatures at ArtFest this year and it looks like we might do some day 2 type stuff.
    I'm more of a make things and less of a draw things person, but I think this can be done.
