Over the last decade, we have been privileged to work with thousands of Copic enthusiasts in our live classes and workshops across North America. As we look to the future, we will be offering our final Copic certifications and classes in Phoenix this January—these classes will be awesome, and we expect them to fill quickly. We hope to see you there!
The Copic Papercrafting Standard Certification class includes hands-on education of Copic products, blending techniques, answers to common problems and teaching users how to test and select inks and papers. You will leave our class with all of the information you need to sell, teach or just enjoy using our products. Attendants of our Standard Certification class will also recieve a 98-page manual, an exclusive kit of Copic products, and a portfolio to keep samples of the different techniques you learn in class. Everything you need for this class is provided!
