Welcome to a Start of Summer Copic Blog Hop!

As summer get’s into full swing our Copic teaching team will take a short break from teaching to focus on refueling their creative juices and preparing classes for the Fall season and brand new classes for 2017.

But as we hit pause on teaching, we are ramping up for the fall season of Copic Workshops, More Whimsical Faces and Hair, Vintage Values and Mono Tones, and Dress For Success: Clothing and Accessories! All three of the workshops will be taught at all 9 of the following locations this fall.

Registration is NOW open for these three locations:

Edmonton, AB August 26th-27th

The rest of the fall classes will be opening soon so make sure to register to get e-mail notifications so you will be the first to know when classes are open in your area.

How about a little Copic Love for this blog hop? This is what I have been working on recently, lots of color studies for the photo tutorials over at Copic In the Craft room! Did you know that I create a new video and photo tutorial that are available free to everyone at the Copic In The Craft Room Facebook page? Here are some quick peeks into some of the art I have created for the photo color comparisons.

Every week I have compares all the natural blending groups in one Copic color family. I have a few more weeks left and I will have them all covered.

On the video front we have really focused in on simple shading with natural blending groups and even one marker shading. Here is a pile of a few of those as well.

  1. Thanks for the hop. I’ll be back with the answers later. One of the girls doesn’t have their site up yet and I have to get a move on or my Mom will beat me with a wet noodle. She’s 88 and still going strong.

    My question for you is if I don’t have Facebook is there a way to still have access to In The Craftroom? Thanks.

    • Bunny somehow I missed your question in the craziness of the hop! I just stumbled on it today. You can find the video tutorials on YouTube just look up Copic In The Craft Room. The photo tutorials are all on Pinterest. I hope you still catch this and can find all our fun stuff!

  2. Hello, what a wonderful prize! I live pretty far from all the classes but would travel and get hotel if I didn’t have to pay for class too. Debbie Olson doesn’t have her post up yet. Wanted to let you know in case she was having a problem she doesn’t know about yet. Thank you for all the copic information you share with us all. I have learned so much from you.

  3. These are fabulous samples! I’ll be checking out the FB page!
    I am not too far from Sacramento, CA and I would love to win a class!

  4. I am so glad you shared this Michele, I never new about this page. I just liked it. Yay. TFS. I love your color studies.

  5. Oh. My. Goodness! I’m so glad this site was included in the blog hop! I didn’t know it existed before today. I’ve got a lot of reading and viewing to catch up on.
    Best. Blog hop. Ever!

  6. Great little hop. The team had some great works to show. I just checked the FB page and it showed that I had liked it but I had to click on the square to get all of the updates. Didn’t know that wasn’t turned on until today. On my way to email the answers now. Have a great day!
