Carla Sonheim

My name is Carla Sonheim and I am the author of Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun! (Quarry Books, 2010). This book has sold over 100,000 copies, and for this I am very grateful! When my boys were young I taught art in their elementary school classrooms. There I was tasked (happily!) This “serious and silly” approach sums up what we do with our online classes, too. Our current artist-teachers are Lynn Whipple, Cat Bennett, Diane Culhane, Fred Lisaius, Karine Swenson, Alison O’Donoghue, Stephanie Hargrave, Krista Peel Starer, Dar Hosta James, and me!

My husband, Steve, is a full partner in this venture. Steve and I live in Seattle, Washington, just 10 minutes away from our three beautiful grandchildren. Carla Mission for Our Online Classes TECHNIQUE & CREATIVITY We strive to make sure that every class includes both innovative techniques and the opportunity for personal growth and self expression.

What a wonderfully addictive process that, for me, is also healing and grounding. There is something that happens, while pulling Gelli Plate mono-prints, that centers me. Creating Monoprints is a Creative Meditative Practice. Gelli Arts Mode: Beyond Time and Space When I am Rocking, in my Gelli Arts Mode, I lose track of time and surroundings outside my art space. Breathe Deeper I find myself breathing deeper when I’m using the Gelli Plate. Letting Go There is something addictive about this process, perhaps because it is generally so satisfying to move into a space of trust and openness. Embracing the Beautiful Mystery I never quite know what the outcome of a Gelli Plate Print will be, and I don’t need to have an agenda, or an intricate plan to create something that often reveals itself as so unique and surprisingly beautiful.

You can read all about that here if you like… This time it was one of those moments, that usually come after a long desert experience, and are quite profound and fill your belly with excitement and fire all over again like it was the first time you ever became truly excited about something. Life ebs and flows. It can’t always be full-on, or any one thing, but I sure love a good sense of shift!

A couple of days ago I was talking to a friend about how my business just hasn’t had the time invested in it that it needs to thrive. I’ve been volunteering my time in a few other places and at the end of the day, my biz hasn’t had the time and love that it needs. And then it came – swift yet gentle, right between the eyes, yet with tenderness and love.

You are one of the winners of a copy of my new book! Please email me at with your mailing info and I’ll send out your book! The Documented Life Project Faces, the Human Form and Characters Self Portrait Prompt: Mirror Mirror So excited to be asked to do this weeks journal prompt for The Documented Life Project. All of the supplies used for this technique Creating a ‘Selfie’ I’m using one of the mini tutorials from my book, Mixed Media Portraits with Pam Carriker for the inspiration to create a mixed media ‘selfie’ in my art journal.

Sample ‘Selfies’ in shades of gray (notice they all look a little different but I used the same photo reference for each of them!) You can often find self love through your art and especially when doing portraits you can learn to love the things about your face that make it different from everyone else’s.
