Coloring Toolbox Retreat

Come join me at the Sproatmeyer’s Coloring Toolbox Retreat in Dallas, Texas, where I’ll be teaching techniques using Copic markers. This event is about learning the art of coloring and filling your toolbox with skills that you can use time and time again. Instead of showing you brushstroke-by-brushstroke how to color a specific image, I’ll be teaching you the concept behind the technique so you can apply it to any image you color.
