We were so lucky to have 4 AMAZINGLY CREATIVE and TALENTED Copic instructors!!!!!! That a ton of talent to gleam some artsy farty tips from. I learnt more in this class than all of the combined classes I have taken over the years!! If you ever get a chance to take this class, go for it!! You won't be disappointed! There was hand outs were stellar, with detailed instructions and photos to refer back to for each and everything covered!
