Creativity means navigating new terrain, and it’s scary and uncomfortable, according to Carla Sonheim, an illustrator, workshop instructor and author of the new book The Art of Silliness: A Creativity Book for Everyone. So feeling self-doubt is natural. Self-doubt is a part of human nature, Davidson said.

The Art of Silliness book. Carla Sonheim has delivered another fun and silly book designed to inspire creativity. While I preferred her book Drawing Lab, this book also contained some fun exercises and a unique take on inspiring creativity. Feb 21, 2015 Blaine rated it really liked it. I doodle all the time. If I am stuck on a problem or confused, the doodles come out of me with little thought as to where I am going. However, I forgot about doodling for fun.

I would advice them as complimentary books for teenagers or young art student.

This is a wonderful book! It is designed to help the reader/artist relax about drawing--make it fun, unpretentious, and without lofty expectations. Techniques like drawing with your opposite hand, drawing upside down, and turning shapes into interesting creatures all help the reader/artist think 'out of the box.' Artists who feel stuck may find some of the author's techniques very freeing. However, the one problem I have with this book is the quality of the paper on which it is printed. Although this book is designed to be drawn in, the paper is so thin that you can see the printing/images on the reverse side, which is very distracting. I would hope that a book being used to draw in would at least be manufactured using drawing-weight paper. There are plenty of 'draw-in' books out there, and they have much heavier paper than this one, so it is definitely possible. I think I will be photocopying much of this book onto better paper!

I'm a 24 year old eventually-returning-to-college woman who works full time at a food service job, and part time at a sports stadium. After a long day (sometimes 15 hours of work between the two jobs) I want to sit down at home to create and draw like I used to before working - but find myself too exhausted.
This book is perfect for that - the exercises are short, fun, weird, and most importantly, easy. So easy, a kid could do it. Do not be fooled, however, this book isn't so simple and easy that it is only for kids. It really is for everyone (especially if you're predisposed to liking doodling and fond of animals).
I would recommend not writing in the actual book that is provided, however. 1 - it looks messy that way. 2 - more people can enjoy the book if the pages are kept blank (you can always photocopy them if you really want your work on the pages) 3 - the book doesn't lay quite flat, which could make doodling in it difficult.

Carla has done it again, this is a must for every creative library! Her drawings and inspirations are so wonderful, I can't put the book down! So glad to be seeking creativity in my daily life through Carla's help!

This book helped me figure out that my drawing does not have to be perfect. In fact some of the early exercises were fun and the picture turned out to be something I liked. Recommended for beginners, and rigid artists too!
  • Ziena
Such a cute book! I am an artist and art teacher and I think the exercises are very worthwhile if you would like to learn to draw but are presented in a way that is silly, fun, and non-threatening. I have used several of the pages in my art classroom.

The approach is playful and lighthearted. I plan to order another for my daughter who works with younger children and is always looking for new approaches.
