Your kind words about my classes ❤️

Outstanding class

"I started my art journey with botanical watercolor and handlettering a few years ago, and now I’m interested in exploring illustration especially with procreate. This class is outstanding! Iva has an engaging teaching style that is easy to understand and follow. She doesn’t go too fast for us beginners, and she reviews concepts again to clarify after each step. I especially like how sometimes Iva’s voice sounds like she’s almost about to start giggling, so full of joy sharing her craft. This is the kind of class that makes my skillshare membership totally worthwhile. I’m looking forward to taking more of Iva’s classes."

- Carol Natalie

Really motivating

"This class was absolutely PERFECT! Iva is so kind, and the way she teaches is so comprehensive and inspiring! All the explanations, scenarios, examples and instructions were very well tailored in a fashion that students from all levels can benefit from this treasure class. It’s really motivating to see such a great artist sharing her knowledge and expertises with us all! Thanks a lot, Iva! I’m looking forward to seeing more from you, in the future!"

- Patrick Fialho

Inspirational instructor

"This class was wonderful. Iva is such an inspirational instructor. Her lessons are very well organized and her practice materials and lessons provide a solid foundation for further steps. I’m so happy that I now know how to use multiple references to create my own character illustrations. I highly recommend this class."

- Helene Gold

Organised and engaging

"Iva is fantastic! I've learnt a lot from her lessons! She's so organised and engaging, she's also very warm and sweet, you can be very relaxed during her lessons. The colour she uses is absolutely stunning, so many useful tips and examples have been provided in the class which can really be used in my creation. Thanks again!"
