Wednesday updates

I know I usually post links on Friday, but I have a few neat things that I want to pass along today.

Copic Website
As you may have noticed, the Copic website has been slowly morphing and changing. We've added a great blog for following artists and occasionally an exclusive interview. Check this out for some good inspiration.

Copic Community
We have also changed the way we do our online gallery. If you would like to see artwork other people have made or if you want to submit your own you can visit CopicCommunity.com go dig around a bit, as there are lots of neat illustrations up already. When you wish to submit, just click the link on the sidebar. You'll have a window that shows, and at the top it says "submit a text post" click on that and switch to "submit a photo" then follow the directions to post your own artwork made with Copic products.

Upcoming Certifications
I know a lot of upcoming classes are full, but some are still open or will be opening soon. If you'd like to attend then let me know right away so we can get you on the list. All classes run from 9 am to 4pm and cost $120 unless otherwise noted.

I am sorry to see that the certification class for FL was cancelled. Do you know when you guys might return to FL for more certification classes?

marianne walker said...

Probably in about 6 months. There will most likely be a GA class in a few months as well.

Kelly Landers said...

Thanks Marianne! I appreciate your response and will just keep my eyes opened for your next FL sessions!

Have a great day!!

Are the certification class for those students who already know a lot of techniques with copics. Or studets who are new with copics can also attend?

thanks!
