You may have thought that I've dropped off the face of the earth. Not so! I have been enjoying a bit of time recouping from a very busy Fall and getting ready for the next busy season and CHA, which is part of my next announcement:
I know that over the last year or so many of you have asked me for a book of things covered in this blog. While I am not announcing a book for the general public, I have been working very hard on a book project...
Over the last two years, and with much trial and error we developed the Copic Certification Program. This Fall we added and trained our new instructors who will begin teaching right after CHA. Colleen, Lori, Kathy, Sherrie, Debbie, Sharon and Sally Lynn all got a new instructor manual with their training, but I hadn't finished the Student Manual when we had our meetings in November.
Now, as of 2010 CHA, ALL people attending Copic Certification will walk away with the new Copic Certification Student Manual. This book, which is being completed in the next two weeks, will be about 50+ pages of instruction geared for anyone who is attending (or has attended) Copic Certification classes. It is NOT a book that stands alone, rather it is a workbook or refrence book to accompany the class.
Anyone who attends a class in 2010 automatically gets the new manual. People in the Sarasota class will get manuals mailed to them in a few weeks, as the books will still be at the printer's and not quite ready yet.
If you have already taken a Certification class and would like to purchase the new manual we will have more information following CHA on purchasing the book and you will get an e-mail with ordering information. This is ONLY for people who have taken the Certification Class at this point! I know all of you are eagerly awaiting a book for the general public, but first things first. In the meantime, enjoy my blog and register for a Certification in your area :) Keep looking for more details when those manuals will be ready.
Please DO NOT e-mail us at this point asking for more info about the manuals, as they are still in production.
We are getting our lists narrowed down for the first quarter classes. More classes are being finalized each day, so keep checking back for a class in your area. If you need an application or to get on the mailing list for any of these locations please e-mail email@example.com
This list will be updated, so keep looking for more locations near you in 2010!
