“Using Iva’s class I was able to learn how to draw my own character! This is something I have wanted to learn for a while and Iva made this very easy. Her instructions are super clear and you are able to draw with her whilst picking up tips and skills along the way that can be applied to other art works in the future! She teaches you how to create the portrait but there is also freedom to make it your own, I chose different colours and added extra details to the eyes etc. The steps to creating the portrait and broken down really easily and are super actionable, I can’t believe what I created could be so easy! This was a really fun class and I am so proud of my final outcome. Thank you Iva!!”
