Not only am I an artist...
I'm a Copic Intermediate Designer!!!!
I had the pleasure of spending an entire day with Colleen Schaan...
...and Debbie Olson.
Together they poured their Copic hearts out to a bunch of artists. Yes...that's right...I said ARTISTS!
ANYONE can be an artist. Being an artist is a state of mind. It doesn't matter how much schooling you've had or how well you can draw. Heck...I've seen little kids that have NEVER been to school draw some pretty amazing things! Sooooo...YES...I'm an artist.
The Copic Intermediate program helped me learn more about the artistic aspects of working with Copic products. Best of all...it helped me to see the world in MY OWN artistic way. There's no right or wrong...no rules set in stone. Easy stuff! I just need to keep doing what I was already doing....having fun and coloring my heart out!
Plus...I got to hang out all day with friends, make new friends, AND...share my glitter laced cookies with everyone :) Glitter on chocolate chip cookies...now THAT is ART!
Now let me introduce you to 3 Paper Artists:
