Hi everyone! Welcome to Created from Color!
Typically, Kristy of Some Odd Girl and I, Melissa of Melissa Made, are sharing tutorials on this site but right now we are opening a new round of registration is for our Created from Color Basic Class! This course offers techniques using your Copic markers from the first time you pick up a Copic marker. However, if you’ve played with your markers but have never had a lesson on how to use them this class is for you! Here are some important facts to know about the Basic Created from Color Course:
- Class Start Date – October 29th – January 7th – 7weeks of lessons and 3 weeks of extra time to re-watch lessons, print lessons and finish final project.
- Online Blog Format – You will access courses on a weekly basis (2-3 lessons a week). Classes will be up at 9am and you can access them at anytime. This format allows you to work whenever YOU can.
- Individual Attention and Critique with a 40 student class limit
- Private Preloaded Lessons with Videos
- Private Class Forum and Facebook Group
- Private Class Gallery for uploading homework
- Lessons that range from Copic Basics to finishing a final project – 7weeks
- Downloadable Content
- You WILL NOT be Copic Certified at the end of our class but the information taught is by Two Copic Intermediate Certified Instructors
Again, this class session will begin on October 29th and students will have access to the Class Blog thru January 7th. We will be having 7 weeks of lessons with downloadable content, videos, access to our student only forum and gallery where you can interact with your teachers and students while you take the class. The class is presented in a blog format with lessons posted 2-3 times per week, once they have been posted they stay up for the duration of the class so you can go back and work at your own pace or work on the lessons daily. We want you to be able to come into the class as a complete newbie and leave with confidence!
We’ll be covering topics such as Smooth Coloring and Blending Techniques, Coloring Hair, Skin, Clothing and Fur, Using your Colorless Blender, Tricky Situations like coloring Reds, Blacks and Whites, Basic Light Sourcing and more!
We’d like to share two students images from our last Created from Color Basic Class. These images show the striking improvement both students made. Each student practiced and submitted homework throughout the class and greatly improved their coloring skills. Please take the time to visit these two fabulous ladies and their blogs! Both are talented and wonderful people!
*A special thank you goes out to Brenda and Candace for allowing us to share your progress in our class.*
Each has their own personal style, that we encourage students to work on, but both had wonderful improvement
We will also be offering *optional* class kit for purchase to registered students, that you will be able to purchase the from Oozak. Rusty of Oozak has GREAT customer service and is able to offer a fabulous price for the kits and super quick shipping. Markers are not included but we urge you to pick up any colors you would like to use for the class. Students will be able to purchase these after registration has been confirmed. We will email you with a special link.
This kit will include:

*Neenah Solar White CS
We’ve included stamps, ink and papers that we’ll be using thru out the class. No easier way to follow along than to have the same items right on hand! Are you ready to see the exclusive stamps? We wanted these 2 designs to be able to cover almost everything we’ll be working on thru the course, and I think they’re a lot of fun! Say hello to Celebration Mae and Spot!
Cute? We thought so We will send everyone a list of colors we use in the class too. You can either fill your collection or start a collection!
In the mean time here is a little about our Instructors, Kristy and Melissa…
