About this Live Session

Note from Skillshare: Here is a link to the recorded live session with Claudia Melchor del Rio. 

Please email us at [email protected] with any questions or feedback, and thank you for your support as we continue to expand our Live offerings!

Learn how to create a dreamy landscape using mixed media with architect and illustrator Claudia Melchor.  In this live session, you’ll learn how to incorporate a variety of mixed media elements (e.g. gouache, color pencil, posca markers, neocolor wax pastels) cohesively into your art to create vibrant, place-based illustrations. And if you’re short on materials at home, simply enjoy watching Claudia’s unique process unfold in real time!  

Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on Wednesday, June 24th at 1pm EST for a live online Zoom session with Claudia Melchor all about Mixed Media Illustration. The session will run for approximately 60 minutes. Click the “Remind Me” button above to register! 

Claudia Melchor is an architect, illustrator and artist from Spain and now based in Basel, Switzerland. She illustrates colorful scenes that integrate architecture, texture, materiality and shapes. She incorporates her unique perspective as an architect into her art, using mixed media to breathe life into buildings and landscapes. Her first Skillshare class on painting your childhood home inspired some incredible student projects, and we’re excited to see what you’ll create with her during this live class!

This live session will include:

  • Choosing materials and colors for mixed media illustration
  • Analyzing a reference photo and adding elements to create a dreamy landscape
  • Sketching, layering and adding textures to make the illustration come to life

Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Claudia or simply watch along and ask questions. Claudia encourages you to bring whatever mixed-media materials you have on hand. Feel free to add questions in advance of the event (discussion forum below) or bring them live to the Zoom session. We look forward to seeing you soon!
