Designing Holiday Card Backgrounds


In this intermediate Copic class, 5 lessons will teach techniques for designing scenes for Christmas cards. The content is drawn from videos already made public on YouTube; scene videos were selected and grouped into lessons that will help students think through options to design scenes for holiday creations!

This free mini course is made up of teaching from the last few years, assembled with several approaches to single topics that make sense – and you don’t need to hop around YouTube to find them all!

Most of the 16 techniques are at minimum Intermediate, but students of all levels can still learn from this course. Note that some of the videos do not have voiceover, but were selected because they demonstrate the technique discussed in the lesson.

  • Intermediate Level
  • Prerequisite: Copic Jumpstart or equivalent experience
  • 3 hours of video instruction

The lessons can be viewed anytime and at your leisure; since this particular class is on YouTube (a rarity here at Art-Classes) they can be downloaded as usual from that site for offline viewing; there are hours of instruction that you can watch again and again for years to come:
