What you'll do

Welcome to my colourful online art class for kids and adults where we create extraordinary stories using traditional Mexican handcrafts.

In this online experience, we are not only going to tell stories, we’re going to create art that tells a story!

You’ll learn abstract art and collage techniques and explore my culture through traditional mexican art!

We’ll start by painting amazing and personalized papers. You’ll paint with acrylic paints, markers, watercolor or any type of paint that you have at home. I’ll also give you some tips to make textures in the paper and personalize them.

The most amazing thing about this online experience is that you can use RECYCLED paper and material that you have at home. If you don’t have plain white paper you can use magazines, newspapers, old notebooks or anything that you have on hand.

I’ll show you how to create a Mexican scenario full of characters and life. We’ll create a whole new world just with paper! And we’ll get to do it with people from all around the world!

This experience is for everybody but children are always welcomed. If you’d like to take an adults only group session, please message me directly or book a private group.

I look forward to creating something special with you in my online art class for kids and adults.
All experiences are hosted in English. If you’d like to take a Spanish class, please write to me before s

I’m Sofia, an art teacher with 5 years experience in teaching art classes for children and adults. I studied Design and specialized in Art. 

I’m certified by the Montessori Institute of Barcelona with an art degree for children 6 to 12 years of age.

Sharing my culture through art techniques has become my passion! And now I'm a part of the homeschooling community with kids from all around the world.

For me, being an artist is how I express myself.

I teach art in many studios around my city. I've been teaching kids for more than 4 years and
I love it! 

I am very patient and cozy, and my main goal is to let the kids discover their passion about art in their own way.

I believe that art opens your mind and makes you think in other ways. Art breaks your traditional thought. It pulls apart your feet from the ground and brings imagination

The best Airbnb experience I have been on. Sofia really knows Mexican art and how to bring the stories to life. My Mum and I really enjoyed making our own pieces and learning about Mexico.

The creative Event with Sofia was really charming and fun. We learned different painting techniques, after listening to a sweet story, selected together how to personalize our art, and she has such a warm, welcoming character. Thank you for the time together. I recommend it for as well children as adults!

Super fun activities and story. Wonderful way to expose children to new cultures. Sofia is a very talented artist. Crafts were easy to follow along. Story was vibrantly illustrated. My 6 year old had a blast and stayed focused on the Zoom call.
