What is Copic Club?

Join Amy for casual coloring in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. This is a beginning level class with optional challenges for more advanced colorers.

If you're just starting out with Copic markers, if you want to improve your blending, or simply want to chat as you color in a stress-free environment- then this is the class for you!

Club classes are non-sequential. If you miss one class (or seventeen), do not worry that you've missed to much to rejoin the class because we revisit the same essential topics every 2-3 months using different images and different colors. Come as often or as infrequently as you wish.

This is a great class for absolute beginners

NO drawing skills required. We use commercial stamp images with wide, open coloring spaces.      

RSVP required, spaces are limited

Lesson: Simplified Skin Tones & Hair

A lesson by request. Learn to expand the range of skin tones you can create with your Copic Markers. I've carefully pared down my own list of markers to just the most essential to getting three distinct skin tones with matching hair, proving that you don't need to own every E marker to cover every ethnicity.

New skin tones covered include:

  • Ultra Pale Caucasian (with freckles)
  • Native Belt (Central America, South America, Middle East, Mountain Asia)
  • Mid African Warm Brown

Discussed but not demonstrated: Asian, Tan Caucasian, and Dark African

Stamp: "Beachies" by C. C. Designs

Class Materials:

All club classes work from a limited master supply kit. Each class will draw supplies from the master kit; this means every supply you purchase for Copic Club will be used in several classes. No more buying single-use marker colors! 

The kit can be gradually purchased as colors are called for. Contact Shannon at Remember When to discuss her introductory kit price- it's a great deal!

Any non-kit items on the supply list are entirely optional.
