"Character Drawing with Sunny Carvalho"
Create Arts Online is thrilled to present Sunny Carvalho and her signature character drawing online course called “Character Drawing with Sunny Carvalho.”
In this course Sunny breaks down how to create her whimsical and expressive characters by using a step-by-step process. She will guide you through the process of making them come to life with your own style and creative voice.
You will start by learning how to draw simple shapes that can evolve into faces and expressions for use in your artwork. Sunny demonstrates how each shape she draws can become a person or animal with so much personality. Once you have mastered these techniques you will be able to transfer these skills to all of Sunny’s courses here at Create Arts Online.
We highly recommend this course as a first step before diving into any of Sunny’s other courses that include “Watercolor Absurdity" and “Whimsical Character Painting." This course is included as a bundle option with any of the above courses for a special price.
Sunny is such a talented and versatile mixed media artist. We are so fortunate to be able to share her talents here at Create Arts Online and we hope you will want to come along and learn with Sunny in her online course.
"Watercolor Absurdity with Sunny Carvalho"
Create Arts Online is excited to present a very unique and creative online course, “Watercolor Absurdity with Sunny Carvalho.” This is a great way for a beginner or someone with experience to dive in using Sunny’s approach to creating whimsical characters with watercolors.
Sunny starts by sharing her “idea journal,” a place where she jots down all of the ideas that come to her creative mind. Once she decides which characters she will draw and paint, the fun begins. Unlike Sunny's in-person workshop, you will watch in real time as Sunny paints and creates a variety of her characters througout this course. Once you have learned Sunny’s techniques you will be able to add your creative voice to your own characters. Sunny shares her favorite paper, paints, dip pens, and other instruments as she demonstrates how to use them. Sunny will also share some of the tricks she has up her sleeve.
If you have not purchased Sunny’s “Character Drawing” online course, we highly recommend you start there if you do not draw your own characters already. You can purchase a bundle version of the two courses together for a special price.
This online course will teach you how to find your creative voice while you learn Sunny’s techniques. These skills will help you bring your own whimsical and colorful watercolor absurdity to life. We can’t wait to see what you create!
Sunny Carvalho is a mixed media artist living in Pinson, Alabama amid the chaos of too many art supplies. Focusing on functional yet whimsical ceramic ware, hand-sculpted ceramic pendants, freehand stitched characters and mixed media paintings, her quirky characters have found their way into many of the mixed media magazines and books. With an emphasis on the joy of everyday living, her work reflects the humor and oddity of the unique characters residing in her head as they deal with pets, situations, and each other. She began her mixed media career as an instructor with Artfest (a groundbreaking retreat near Seattle that launched the careers of many internationally known artists and had it's final retreat in 2012). Sunny continues to teach live but is thrilled to partner with Create Arts Online and bring her signature works to an online platform.
