About This Class

In this class you’ll learn step-by-step process of creating your own unique postcards designs using watercolor elements: from finding inspiration and sketching to ready for print file. This class is perfect for beginning designers, illustrators, and everyone who loves trying something new. You might not be a skilled artist, because it is not focused on artistic technique, it’s all about design practice. No prior knowledge or experience in drawing required. By the end, whether you can draw or not, have or don’t have watercolors, you’ll have postcards set design by your own!

My name is Olga, and I'm graphic designer, part-time illustrator, part-time styled photographer, full-time learner and busy mum. I like to learn something new every day, try new spheres of activity and share my knowledges with others) 

I really like Skillshare because here we can learn from each other and communicate with other creative people. That's so cool, isn't it?=)
