What does “intermediate” mean here?
The class is taught with paper and pens – no stamps, no sketches, no net! That doesn’t mean it’s going to be terribly difficult, but it does mean that at least a basic facility with Copic markers is a must. Some experience with making marker strokes, blending, and flicking is needed; as well as the willingness to put a lot of color on the paper. Scenes are not for the timid who are hoarding ink in their pens. *smile*
This class is appropriate for artists working in any genre – cardmaking, fine art, animé, etc. Lessons are taught on a small paper – each is 4-1/4″ x 5.5″ but can be adapted to a larger size as desired – just remember if you double the size of the paper, you may need to double the size of marker strokes.

Simplicity at its best
I'm not a big copic fan but couldn't resist trying. Love her clear concise instruction...so accessible. Not to mention eye catching projects.
I took all scene classes. They were easy! That lamppost was what got me hooked. It made me feel so nostalgic. Love the classes.
Turning cute stamp into great card
This course helped me turn a cute stamp image into a great card. My penguins in a sleigh image was cute enough, but putting them in the scene with the street lamps on a bridge really made the card something special. Being able to stop and go back helped a bunch as did the colors suggestions. I made a pretty decent card on my first try. I can get more mileage out of my stamps by changing up the background scene and who better to learn from than Sandy Allnock, the Queen of Scenes!
