Very inspiring. This class got me to reconnect with color after many many years! Ana is a lovely teacher and the last video in the class is very real and insightful. It's also quite soothing to have her videos play while doing my paintings. Give her class a try!
This is very awesome class and technique! I love it!
The best class on Skillshare! :)

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.
