It's not you, it's your technique

The problem with most marker lessons and tutorials is that they're based on the copy-cat theory.

"I'll show you how I colored this project. By watching me color, you'll be able to do it too!"

But a monkey-see, monkey do style demonstration only works for that one image. Eventually you hit a brick wall where you've seen it all and understand nothing.

Workshop classes fill in the gaps!

We're learning the basics of realism! It's more than how to do something, learn why. The why is a far more valuable lesson because you can apply it to all of your coloring projects. 

No more guessing where the color goes!

Great edges make for better realism!

Those big black stamp outlines are holding you back!

Join Amy for a challenge level lesson on color sculpting, coloring clear edges without the crutch of black lines to divide your objects. You CAN color a green frog on a green branch without pulling out a black pen to separate them!

Plus, we're pulling out some amazing blending combinations like yellow into violet and green into white.

  • 110 minutes of video time
  • Technique Deep Dive videos shows you how to correct the halos that naturally happen when masking objects for background techniques
  • extended cut demonstration videos with instructional commentary
  • helpful lesson aids including photo references, guide to shade/shadow, and color guides

If you can blend well and color with confidence, learn to apply these basic skills to something more than cartoon stamps. Try out the Vanilla style of instruction and be amazed at what you can do!

Marker Painting Workshops offer skill-building instruction

Designed for intermediate to advanced students- Once you have mastered the basic blend with Copics, we can build upon that skill to increase your realism.

Tree Frog is an intermediate to advanced level class which does not cover beginner blending skills.

Every class covers a new art-based technique or concept.

Practice your new technique on the class image but apply the lesson to all your future coloring projects.

Marker Painting Workshops are perfect for:

  • Moderate beginners who already have basic Copic blending skills
  • Intermediate colorers who are tired of "monkey see, monkey do" classes
  • Experienced colorers looking to challenge their current skills
  • Shy artists who want more than craft-level classes

I recommend that students start with Marker Painting Foundations if you do not have basic blending skills before starting a Marker Painting Basics class.
