Multidisciplinary artist and illustrator Osheen Siva will soon guide students in exploring the creative aspects of their personality in a class conducted by Skillshare, a creative learning platform.

Originally from Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu, Osheen has worked with WhatsApp, Gucci, Vans, Converse, Levi’s and several other brands to produce art for their products and platforms. Her artwork has been featured across multiple publications such as The Face Magazine (2020), Architectural Digest (2020), Vogue India (2020) and Paper Planes (2019).

Titled ‘Finding Your Creative Voice’, Osheen’s class will go live on Skillshare’s platform on February 21, with the objective of inspiring students to learn from their heritage and interests to create art that reflects their personality and experiences.

“I have always believed in the impact of seeing a piece of the artists’ life or personality through their work. My interest in sci-fi and comic books, as well as the influence of growing up in vibrant South India, gave a sense of authenticity to my art. With my class on Skillshare, I hope to convey a simple yet powerful message of being bold with one’s artistic expression. I believe it is our experiences that shape us and the ability to reflect authenticity through any art form can invoke a sense of curiosity and relatability in the minds of viewers”, said Osheen Siva.

Osheen’s class will be a part of the Skillshare Originals programme that consists of high-quality classes produced by Skillshare’s in-house content team in collaboration with globally-renowned creators and industry leaders. Curated by veterans, classes under Skillshare Originals provide the Skillshare community with industry insights, helping them hone their creative prowess.

“As Skillshare ventures into the Indian market, bringing seasoned and talented creators to our platform is at the forefront of our vision to expand our online community,” said Aayur Kaul, market head, Skillshare India.

In her class, Osheen will teach intermediate level lessons, taking students through the process of mixing Illustration (sketching, inking) and painting (acrylic, spray painting) to create portraits and tell a story. This class is aimed at students who are looking to break out of an artistic block, experiment with a new medium, or just sit back and soak in inspiration.

“We are thrilled to have Osheen teaching on our platform. Her expertise and understanding of the artistic landscape can help students get a peek into the prospects of the industry and learn skills that could transform their artistic abilities,” said Kaul.
