Hi friends! I am SUPER excited to teach in Miami. Here is all the information you will need.
Lettering with Watercolors
12 hour program
Welcome to Lettering with Watercolors by Ana Victoria! Here you will learn both basic watercolor techniques and how to achieve modern and organic lettering skills using your paintbrush! This is the perfect class for beginners, as well as experienced designers who are looking to integrate hand lettering into their portfolio. We will combine illustration techniques into your final masterpieces. Each student will work on a personal project with one on one guidance from the teacher.
Students will leave this class having a better understanding of watercolors as a medium and awesome illustrations that can be pieces of art on their own or used in personal projects.
Schedule: 3 sessions
April 29th, 30th and May 1st from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm
Basic watercolor techniques

Now that we know how to use our paints and have discovered new textures and ways to use watercolors, we can start practicing lettering!

We will begin sketching out our ideas for our final masterpiece! I work with each person individually to help them develop their concept.
