Whether you’re new to Copic markers – or have years of experience under your belt – this class will help you understand the markers: how to choose them and how to use them! Everything from basic blending techniques to shading and color theory will inspire your Copic art in this class. Many downloadable handouts will help you test and practice your blending and color combinations, and you’ll use these swatch sheets for years to come.
While some lessons in the class are geared to papercrafters using stamps – fine artists can also learn much by applying the techniques to drawn images as well.
Students can even take this class without owning a lot of markers! The color theory exercises will teach how to mix colors using a color wheel to create new hues. The recommended color list can be previewed in the public Pre-Class post, however – don’t stress. Use the colors you have and keep a list of markers you might like to add as you go!
This class will get beginners started, amp up intermediate students, and deepen an advanced student’s knowledge of Copic markers – and this class serves as the prerequisite for future classes.
The lessons can be viewed anytime and at your leisure; there are almost 5 hours of instruction that you can watch again and again for years to come.
Supplies for this class in the free preview lesson in the “curriculum” tab.
So grab your markers, some paper, and let’s jumpstart your coloring skills!

Finally 'Get it'!!
I'm only 1/2 way through this class, and it's taking me a long time due to so many issues, but I can say that I finally understand what to do with copics! I can't recommend this class enough! There are tons of charts to fill at first, and just when you think you never want to do another chart again, something clicks and you will then find the rest just makes sense!
I fainally got an iPad so that I can watch the lessons at my desk and follow along with each demo. My computer is upstairs and not at all handy for doing the classes. Now I can work through all my courses. I especially like the Color Testing charts and will use them in all my copies coloring along with my Hex chart. Happy Smile!
Basics To Copics
I greatly enjoyed this class. Sandy is a wonderful teacher. I learned a lot and I am excited to grow into this new knowledge of how to blend and mix colours together. Awesome!
This class provided an excellent foundation! I loved the art basic and color blending instruction. I took this class because I love Sandy's high contrast style and layers of color...it didn't disappoint. If you are new to Copics or just want a good understanding of color, I highly recommend this class.
Since the first time I saw a Copic colored image I have wanted that same skill. I have been struggling with Copic coloring for years. I have taken classes, I have bought books, I have bought numerous markers, that now I know I don't need. I would highly recommend anyone interested in Copic coloring to take this class first. I would have saved so much time, money and frustration. Thank you Sandy!
