The Copic Certification Class encompasses education of the most important aspects of Copic's product lines and includes hands-on education of product knowledge, blending techniques, answers to common problems and how to test and select your inks and papers. We will show you how to demonstrate, teach and sell Copic products. You will receive a complete curriculum filled with a 68 page manual, techniques and class instructions, as well as a teacher’s kit of products for demonstration (11 Copic products valued at $85.00 US MSRP) which includes one of each type of product from these lines. You will have an opportunity to use all of these products hands-on as we cover their function and differences between each one.

You will learn about three common mistakes and how to identify, test and use your materials.

You will learn four different blending techniques.

You will learn how to create texture and erase mistakes

You will learn how the markers are labeled - with what I personally like to refer to as The Copic Periodic Table of Colors.

You will learn how to choose colors that work well together from the Copic Color Wheel - which I personally refer to as the Galaxy of Copic Colors.

You will have an opportunity to airbrush with both the ABS-1 and the Air Compressor / ABS-3 setup and understand how each works.
