If you are looking to learn how to use alcohol markers and have fun, then you might read more about the course MARKERS.

The course MARKERS is about interesting and fascinating media – alcohol markers. You will learn to create vibrant and beautiful illustrations using them and you can start to create at the first lesson!

Why alcohol markers?

Markers provide bright, cheerful, juicy ink flow. They blend almost like paint, yet much easier to use. You don’t need a glass with water, any solvents or special media to make it flow better or dry faster. You don’t need anything else, but your markers.
