Join Jana Monday May 24th for a "Copic Marker Class" this class is for beginners and those who have been using Copics for quite a while. Cost is $27.
Sign up for the class and save 15% off all copics through class day!
Join Jana Millen, certified Copic instructor,
to learn all of the wonderful things you can
do with Copic markers. You will learn
about the markers themselves, the color system, blending techniques,
and more. In the interest of learning
practicing several techniques in the time that we have, we will not make
projects. But we will have time to color
and play and try them out!
You will need at least one “set” of Copic Markers that can be blended. A set is markers where the letters in front of the color code are the same but the numbers are 2-3 numbers apart. For instance, E31, E34, and E37. You will also need a blender pen (0 is the color code). If you don’t own any sets or markers we have them in stock at the store and you can purchase them there. Plan to share markers with others and you will do the same so you can get experience with lots of different color families.
Here are some suggestions on color “sets” to bring or purchase (but they don’t have to be these):
R02, R05, R08
R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
RV21, RV23, RV 25

Join Jana Millen for a 2 hour class wehre you will learn how to use Ranger's Distress Inks. Jana is a certified Ranger instructor who studied with Tim Holtz at Ranger University and will share some of the many techniques that she learned from him. For each technique we will first practice it and create a sample tag with instructions printed on it so you will always have a record of how to do it. Then we will make a card using each technique. So you will leave the class with 5 cards and 5 sample tags. (Note: This class teaches the same techniques that were taught in the Distress Ink classes at Stamp Your Art Out in Blue Ash, OH. However, this class uses the newest Hero Arts products and new Distress Ink colors so the cards are somewhat different.)
