Copic Papercrafting Standard Certification Classes

Standard Copic Certification
The Copic Certification Class encompasses education of the most important aspects of Copic’s product lines. It includes hands-on education of product knowledge, blending techniques, answers questions to common problems, and testing and selecting your inks and papers. You will receive a kit of Copic products, a 68 page manual and an opportunity to make a portfolio of all the techniques you learn in class. You will also have an opportunity to sample each of our markers. We cover their function and the differences between each one.

Topics Covered in Class:
•  Three common mistakes and how to identify, test and use your materials
•  Four different blending techniques
•  How to create texture and erase mistakes
•  The Copic numbering system
•  How to choose colors that work well together from the Copic Color Wheel
•  Airbrushing with both the ABS-1 and the Air Compressor / ABS-3 setup and understand how each works.

    Please consider Huntsville, Alabama for the Southeast region. We have nice facilities including an Art Museum (http://www.hsvmuseum.org/) that routinely offer Master Classes that would be great locations for Copic Beginner, Intermediate, and Ink Workshops.

    Huntsville, AL is the home of the Panoply Arts Festival (http://www.artshuntsville.org/our-programs/panoply-arts-festival) and has a thriving art community (http://www.flyingmonkeyarts.org/)!

    There are plenty of hotels near the art museum as well. (http://www.travelweekly.com/Hotels/Huntsville-AL/Holiday-Inn-Huntsville-Downtown-p3739862)

    Please, consider it! The city of Huntsville would be an excellent location!

  • Lyonpo

    I’m a little surprised at the price ($120) and Seattle being $199 but the info sheet is exactly the same as the $120 class in other areas.

    • http://www.copicmarker.com/ Kacy @ Copic Marker

      Hi! That was an error on the info sheet – It’s been fixed now. Thanks! :)

  • Jacqueline Nakad Chuffi

  • Gwynneth Whyte

  • Debbie

    Would LOVE a class in Colorado!!! Please consider.

    Thank you! Love these awesome markers!

  • Certaintea

    I would love to see Copic classes offered in the Los Angeles, Pasadena, Arcadia, Monrovia areas. There are so much interests in these areas. We are being taught here and there at scrap book stores. Although these individuals are very good, they are not certified copic instructors. Please kindly consider offering copic classes in these areas. Most of us have switched over to Prisma colors pencils as an alternative. Thank you!

  • Carol Coleman

    Surprised you don’t have links for hotel reservations or set of room blocked for this in Sacramento!

  • Charleston Stamper

    I’m in Charleston SC.
    It’s become the top tourist destination in our country!
    I’d love to see classes here.
    Thanks for considering

  • bill.lorah

    Looking for maryland classes

  • Momyoung3

    I also would like to take a class in the San Francisco Bay Area.

  • Rose Paul

    I’d love to see a standard certification class be presented in Charleston, SC or somewhere here in the South. Savannah GA, Columbia SC, Charleston SC, anywhere! I know there are a lot of Copic users down here because I am hard pressed to buy markers in our local art stores. They are constantly sold out.
    Is there any possibility of an online class? I have the Copic swatches loaded into my Photoshop CS5 if that is any help.

  • Sisters

    Yes!
    Please offer beginning and intermediate in San Jose, Monterey Bay Area/Santa Cruz, or San Francisco Bay Area!

  • Jenny

    I would love it if it were in Indio CA or around that area please
