Industry Reviews

Sonheim, Carla. Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises To Make Drawing Fun. Quarry: Quayside. 2010. 144p. illus. bibliog. ISBN 9781592536139. pap. $22.99. ART INSTRUCTION
Sonheim, a painter, illustrator, and workshop instructor, uses skills learned by drawing--e.g., learning to "see" and focus, developing your "hand"--to instill the confidence to get wildly creative in mixed media. In 52 weekly projects, she finds inspiration in famous artists, childhood, and nature. One week focuses on "Your Inner Dr. -Seuss," another on drawing 100 experimental portraits. Sonheim hopes to return adults to the creative innocence of childhood. A good choice for artists of any level. - Library Journal, November, 15, 2010


Book Review, "Running with Scissors" by Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood, www.craftgossip.com, July 7, 2010

Reclaim your inner artist

If I ever meet Carla Sonheim, I will probably not be able to suppress the urge to hug her for writing "Drawing Lab For Mixed Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun". Loaded with a year's worth of inspirational prompts, this book is for all of us creative types who stopped drawing right around the third grade because we decided we weren't talented enough to stick with it. From doodle sketches to paper dolls, this book will renew your confidence and make you want a new sketch book and box of Crayolas.

Book review, Cecil Whig, "5 Things to Do This Week", Elton, Maryland, July 26, 2010 "This book might be just what you are looking for when escaping this summer's inexorable hear. The projects and techniques are designed to help adults recover a more spontaneous, playful approach to creating. Find a ton of projects, ideas and techniques that will increase confidence and improve skills."
