I've been wanting to share a post like this one for quite some time now because over the summer I took the time to sign up for
and when I did, I fully dove into a universe of awesomeness. Today I want to share some of my favorite classes that I have done. This is not by any means an exhaustive list since there are hundreds and hundreds of classes available and I've only done a few. I may share another list later.
When you first sign up you can browse and save some clases for later. I suggest that the minute you sign up, you also join their newsletter to learn about new classes or some discount that could prove valuable. I did that and 2 or 3 days after I signed up, I was able to upgrade to the full membership.
One of my favorite bloggers, interior designers, and just altogether creative genius is Justina Blakeney, so when I signed up for skillshare and saw that two of her clases were available,
I took them right away! These short classes gave me many easy-to-implement tips that I am thinking of referring to it as the holidays approach. "
This second class was actually a really cool class, especially for a person like me that loves Instagram and often snaps pictures of my food and drinks. I have previously written a post on how to improve your Instagram pictures and this class can also give you additional tips. "
Another great and recent photography class which is a must
is called "Styling Food for Instagram: Creating Collages". Interestingly enough, after only looking at the trailer of the upcoming class I created a collage and posted it on Instagram and my picture was featured by one of my favorite photographers on her own Instagram as part of "that color project" and also shared by Deeply Rooted Magazine. So after I actually took the class, I have so much more inspiration and direction. The artist teaching this class is really amazing!
Another class that really made me giddy and that I have yet to finish taking is "Telling a Story through Fashion Illustration" by Paper Fashion which just happens to be such a fabulous fashion illustration. I wanted to try my hand at illustration and the fact that she is one of my favorite illustrators motivated me to just go for it.
This was actually the first class I ever took on Skillshare. It's one given by Molly Jacques called "Introduction to the art of modern Calligraphy" which really helped me discover a few things and polish my skills. If you are interested in learning this a great way to start. Last but not least, Freelancing for Creatives: Kickstart your independence. This class is not your usual orthodox boring how to start your business, it is more hands on, very helpful and very informative as well!
Do you already use Skillshare? If you do I would love to hear your class suggestions on the comment section below or on my social media!
Note: The pictures I included in this post were taken for Instagram so you will see some imperfections in the fruit pattern, I quickly created, that you wouldn't normally see on Instagram and it goes with the class I took.
