I have taken several Skillshare watercolor classes and this is the best beginner class around! It has a lot of information about products, building textures, and great practice exercises that I use to warm up when painting. Overall, I would recommend Ana Victoria's class as a great starting place. I wish I would have taken it first.
Hi! I am enjoying your classes so so much and they are very inspiring.. i wanted to know if all of these methods and techniques can also be applied on gouache paint?
Ana's class is a very informative and relaxing. She gives lots of tips and you learn a lot. Or brush up on what you knew. Her class as a nice flow, not too rushed, like other classes I've seen. Love her style! Will take all Ana's classes. Thank you.

My name is Ana Victoria Calderón, and I’m an American/Mexican artist based in Mexico City. I have a degree in Graphic Design with continued studies in Fine Arts. Over the past 5 years I have developed a signature watercolor technique, which I am very excited to share with you here today!

I teach a few in person workshops a year, sell my art prints and product online and work with great clients such as Galison, Papyrus, Up With Paper, Studio Oh!, Demdaco and Design Design! We also run a small wedding and stationery studio, where you can create personalized illustrations using our signature events catalog.
