Copic Art Class at CHA

If you have been following my blog this year, you'll notice that I've been talking about our new program Tracing Memories. This program teaches you how to convert a photograph into an outline, then color it in while looking at the photograph.

If this sounds exciting, and you think you'd like to try it, then you are in luck!

I will be teaching a 3hr. introductory class in January.

Tracing Memories, Discovering Memories Through Art

Anaheim, CA,  January 12, 9am to 12pm. $35 Taught by Marianne Walker.

Class will be held during CHA, but is not part of the convention. Class will be held at the Anaheim Red Lion Inn.

With the Tracing Memories program, you will learn how to take your own photographs and turn them into custom works of art. Start with an outline generated from a photo, then color it in using Copic Markers. Learn how to see and identify colors. Learn basic Copic marker blending techniques, while working with beautiful photographs on high-quality fine-art paper.

This class is perfect for beginners and those who don't consider themselves artistic. Studies have proven that coloring and arts activities once a week helps relieve stress and promote relaxation at all age levels. But, a lot of the stress in fine-art comes with drawing the original artwork. With the Tracing Memories program, you convert your own photographs, so you don't have to draw. Choose images of your pets, your favorite vacation, or something you want to give as a special gift to a loved one. Coloring your own custom artwork helps you remember those memories, and creates a special picture that resonates for you. These make wonderful family gifts, or can be turned into cards, or printed as works of art. All supplies will be provided. You will leave with 1 to 3 completed images.

Apply for this, and our other CHA classes HERE. This class is filling quickly, so apply soon!

Also, If you are local to the Eugene, OR area, on Tuesdays through Nov. and December, I am hosting FREE Tracing Memories relaxation coloring sessions in conjunction with Sheldon Park Senior Community.

I would love to take a class on this, but . . . I live in Texas and it is a bit too far to drive. Hopefully you will come to Tyler or Longview, Texas and teach a class.

Would love to be in this class, but unfortunately, I"m also in Texas. I hope this becomes one of the classes that goes into the regular Copic classes that are being scheduled.

Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definately interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
