`penny’s O’k Drawing and Illustration On-line Classes, begin January 2021…

 
 
I’m going to offer a series of on-line drawing and illustration classes, beginning in January 2021 for two age levels:  Kiddos—6 years and older and Not Kiddos—as in taller, adult age folks.  The class size will be limited to just a few people until I get the hang of doing this kind of online mentoring, and feel confident I’m meeting the needs of the participants.
 
Registration is OPEN for the first on-line O’k Drawing class of 2021, beginning on Monday,  January 18th, for Kiddos the class will take place from 10 am until 11 am, with a warm-up and cool-down time included; and for Not Kiddos we will be meeting in the evening from 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm.  Each will run as a 4-week session, that you can continue to take, in session-intervals that continue over a period of time in 2021.
 
Here’s the registration page, just click on which age-level you wish to enroll in: http://www.pennyokart.com/product-category/classes/2021-classes/2021-very-ok-drawing-and-illustration-classes/
 
I will have all of the lessons recorded and also provide session outlines and pdf’s to follow along.  You can take the class for just one or two 4-week sessions, or pop in and out over the year. There will always be a 2-3 week break between sessions, and you won’t miss anything if you are in and out over time.
 
You are very welcome to come to this class as a new or returning drawing student. You don’t need to have taken a drawing class anywhere else before. I expect I will always have some brand new students in these 4-week sessions, and the classes will always have students with all levels of drawing skills. 
 
I’m including a bunch of different kinds of drawings and ideas, made with a  variety pens, pencils, watercolor, ink, colored pencil– that I’ve created so you can see some of the everyday things, stories, people and places that happen when I turn to my art language as a conversation.  
 
I’ll be using skills and techniques I’ve gathered from practicing sloppy-quick-sketching, more detailed pen and ink illustration, graphic recording and storyboarding and even ideas for daily journaling and creating our own comics and caricatures.
 
I hope this class will bring a little skill-building and a little fun into our wintertime and I’m looking forward to exploring and sharing.

We are pleased to share an illustrated journey of time to enliven the monthly experience of the New Year of 2016:

The Year of the Monkey and Monkey Yoga!

This is a 12 month calendar, which follows along the Chinese New Year tradition with a meaningful mid-western twist of imagination and story-telling.

As an artist, storyteller and seeker of what-when-how and why, I find Monkey to be an entertaining, delightful imagined compañero. I think of the Monkey in this illustrated calendar-story as a “he”—a little brother type companion who sometimes, like the character Hanuman in the Ramayana, is a bit of a forgetful prankster—but also dearly holds the quality of a devoted little furry amigo, comforter, challenger, a special imagined companion.

As we step into another year of work and play, this little Monkey can also keep us moving on a wonderful Yoga path. We’ll learn and relearn together, the relationship and connections of moving our body and minds into a healthy and purifying place of balance. Why not? Monkey Yoga––Yahoo!

Just in time for the Year of Monkey to officially begin on February 8th.

More details about the calendar:

  • A 12 Month Calendar, February 2016-January 2017 ~ With original drawings and inspired messages, offering a way, month to month, through pictures and words of honest, playful and positive guidance by the inspired teachings that link a wise little Monkey friend with the practice of Yoga.
  • Monthly New & Full Moon notations, and NEW this year, Bio-dynamic Sowing & Planting notations
  • Illustrated & created by `penny Krebiehl

A portion of the sales of this calendar will benefit Little Artshram’s Permaculture and Art Education programs in Michigan, specifically an upcoming Permaculture Design Course in Traverse City (More information: 2016 Traverse City Permaculture Design Course).
