Copic Intermediate Certification

We made it! My friend Micki and I drove to Columbus, Ohio this past Thursday to attend the Copic Intermediate Certification class being taught by Colleen Schaan, Copic Regional Instructor.  What a Blast!! It was an awesome class, on pace, power point instructions, lots of goodies from Copic and a fun, empowering, and educational class.  You might notice the new Copic blinkie now on this blog.  I am posting this image of Lilacs so you can see how we were challenged.  I highly recommend this class, worth the cost, and do not be afraid of the coloring form needed as part of the application.  They only need to see that you have been practicing and learning how to use the markers and have knowledge of the basic skills.  If I got in anyone go for it!You won't regret it.  I heard that an intermediate class might be coming to the Atlanta area this fall.  Just go to the Copic website, click on instructors and certification and fill out the form to be notified when a class opens up near you.  You must of completed the basic certification to be considered for this next level.
This image is not a stamp but drawn by Marianne Walker, Copic product specialist/product director.  We learned Shading, Shadows and Cast Shadows, Shadow color theory, and properties of light and shadow.  All that was just one part of a 5 part program.


  1. I love your final image. Wasn't the class so much fun. It was the best class I have ever taken. So worth the money and so much information. Glad you got home safe and sound.

  2. It was great to share the copic class with you and Micki. The class was awesome and your finished lilac card is beautiful!

  3. Go Mary!!!! I love your write up! The class was an absolute blast to teach and I am sooooo proud of your progress! I can't wait to see you in June!
