This class has a great pace, great begins practice. I have not done art in many years and this class helps build confidence and promotes creativity and experimentation. Would really recommend to anyone starting out. You can tell she likes to teach and is good at it. You cannot learn from a class if the teacher does not love to teach. She surely does love to teach and takes the time to show each step and build up.

Great Information on using watercolors! Love the practice drills that help build skills for learning techniques! And then a project that puts those learned skills to good use!

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.
