Copic Coloring: Human Rainbow I

The “human rainbow” is a celebration of the diversity of ethnicities – and an initiative begun by instructor Sandy Allnock to encourage people to go beyond typical coloring of the artist’s own skin and hair color. YouTube videos show some light diving into coloring with diversity in mind, and it’s high time we had a class giving more detailed information and instruction!

Prerequisite: Copic Jumpstart Class or equivalent experience

In this class, there are 10 lessons; most will be “zooming in” on a particular section of the main class image, a woman carrying two bags.
