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 toward 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 lesson, 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.
