Reflection & Point of View
Join Amy Shulke, a professional illustrator and marker enthusiast for a live coloring demonstration. Real coloring in real time.
Are you ready for realistic coloring?
Online video classes are not real, at least not real in the way you assume.
The projects are planned months in advance. The lessons are tested and simplified. The demonstration is rehearsed. The footage is shot multiple times and edited for clarity. The script is….well, it’s a script!
Everything about an online art class is designed to make the project look easy and amazing.
But that's not how real art works
Marker Painting Workshops Live breaks the production barrier, giving you a real look into the real time artistic process.
Join Amy for a lesson that shows you some simple tools plus a few experiments which will help you understand the space behind your stamp images better.
You've found the perfect stamp but you're afraid to mess it up with a background, so you smush in some color and call it finished. Sometimes you might try to draw a horizon line, but let's face it, you really don't know what you're doing, right? Stop stressing over backgrounds!
Blue Reflection is an Intermediate Challenge coloring demonstration.
We welcome colorers of many levels into this class, however, basic techniques are not covered. Intermediate classes assume you’ve mastered basic techniques and now you’re ready for more independent work and artistic skills. Intermediate challenge classes inspire you to become more independent in your coloring, we also like to throw a few challenges at you to prepare for our advanced classes.

"I really enjoyed this! Thanks so much Amy for a wonderful lesson. I know there are areas of improvement, but I feel like there is always room for that. This was a great way to spend my Saturday."
"This is a beautiful project."
"I just love the things I'm learning and can't wait to start the next project. Your images are challenging for me and I like that. I'll never look at another image and how to color it the same again!"
