"Angelica is passionate about her work and the passion shows in her teaching. She is extremely patient and creates an engaging environment for beginners like myself to explore our creativity. I have learned more in a single session with Angelica than I have with previous instructors at professional art studios" - Cynthia

"Angelica's fashion illustration class was amazing! Right from the start we took pencil to paper and had the basics we used to build upon. We left with three drawings, one of which we used a watercolor technique, along with tips of drawing wardrobe, faces, and hair. Angelica's clear instruction and kind encouragement instilled confidence and was much appreciated. Even if you have no backgroung in art, you can positively take this class and be amazed that you can draw too!" - Sunny

"Learning fashion illustration from Angelica was so much fun! I learned a lot from her, and in just a few short hours could sketch a full figure! I definitely recommend taking her workshop, wether you're a beginner or already know the basics, it's a great workshop to take" - Lauren
