Award-winning Chameleon Pens are an innovative new marker system that allows the user to adjust the color tone of the ink. One pen can produce multiple color tones, so you can create smooth color blends and gradations - all with one pen!
This is a self-paced course, so you can move at your own speed. Each easy-to-follow module provides full explanations with videos, pictures, and downloadable images to print out and practice along with us.

Julia has been working with Chameleon Art Products and the inventor of Chameleon Pens since 2012, from the very beginning.
A full-time crafter who turned her passion into a profession, Cathy makes TV appearances and offers demonstrations and workshops at craft events around the world. She's taught paper crafting for over fifteen years and worked as a designer for several companies. Cathy was also commissioned by art material suppliers to write master classes on how to use their products, for magazine publication.
As a technique-based designer, she had to master, and occasionally invent, various methods for coloring projects. Cathy turned to the art market to find the best media to achieve professional results. She's worked with alcohol pens for almost a decade and amassed a wealth of knowledge, both through tuition and experimentation. Cathy is very excited to share this knowledge with you in our course.
