About This Class

Erla María, illustrator and co-owner at Studio Erla & Jonas will show us how she created her mesmerising art prints from her renowned Children series in this class.

During this class she will start working on her follow up series “Hunters” while showing us step-by-step how to transform an idea from reference photos to an original work of art.

This class will make you challenge your comfort zone while growing your personal vision. You will experiment with new materials and learn to see value in what before you would’ve thrown away.

The class suits both beginners and professionals but a basic knowledge in Adobe Photoshop is required, as well as use of scanner or a digital camera.
