This is the best class by far that I have done on SkillShare. Ana Victoria gives so much detailed information and she is actually paying attention to my work. I have done several other classes and this is the first teacher to comment and give her valuable feedback. Highly recommend these classes.
Fulfilling class that teaches some fun techniques, how to make the best use out of the medium and also inspires students to be creative.

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!
