Not too long ago, learning a skill or getting an education used to be a luxury. We needed to find time and money go to a physical classroom and pay enough for our lessons to keep the teacher motivated.
Thanks to the internet, everything changed. Whatever we want to learn, chances are that we’ll find an online class taught by a professional teacher at unbeatable prices and even for free. The best of all is that the classes, once bought, can be taken and retaken over and over again until we achieve the expertise. No extra costs. From all the tried and tested online resources for educating myself in my passions: fine arts, cooking and photography, I found that Craftsy is one of the best (for price, opportunities, ease of use, accessibility and good quality).
Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. It also has a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a projects section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. With over two million members and counting, Craftsy has something for just about everyone, in categories ranging from quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more.
Why should anyone take a class online?
Online education isn’t just for schools and universities anymore. Craftsy courses provide you the convenience of a world-class instructor in your home, whenever you want to learn. Online education, no matter what subject, is a great alternative to in-person classes for a number of reasons.
With many online learning opportunities being on-demand, you are able to learn at your own pace, anytime. Online learning is a fantastic alternative to in-store craft classes for people with busy schedules or who have difficulty leaving the house. It also allows you to watch a troubling section over-and-over again, so you can see exactly how a technique is carried out, or refer back to your class for relevant concepts before beginning any new projects.
I always dreamed of being a painter but I lacked the opportunity to learn from a real artist how to do it like a pro. So, at the moment I am taking the Free online painting class which so far is brilliant. I’ll let shortly be able to share my first masterpiece with you!
