In this intermediate Copic Marker class, 5 lessons will teach techniques for coloring a wide variety of Christmas holiday scenes. Each lesson builds upon the last, developing skills that lead to success in the following technique.
- Intermediate Level
- Nearly 1.5 hours of video instruction
- Supplies are found in the free preview lesson
- Language: English
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.
The lessons can be viewed anytime and at your leisure; there are hours of instruction that you can watch again and again for years to come:

Oh, the scenes in this class!! So beautiful but I admit to being a little intimidated. I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. But, while I do need practice, my first attempts turned out so great–I was amazed. Sandy is such a good instructor. I find that when I pause the video and just relax through it, I not only enjoy the lesson more, I also have a better end product. Wonderful scenes and a wonderful class!

I accomplished more than I thought possible in this course. I cannot draw, which did give me pause on if this was the class for me. No stamped images to simply color? I thought there was no way I would be able to make my scene resemble the sample piece. I was wrong! The step-by-step instruction, and the ability to pause and rewind to watch a specific section multiple times, allowed me to bring the scenes to life. Sandy provides amazing direction for all of the lessons, and the price-point is incredible for the amount of instruction you receive. I highly recommend this course!
