kinda addicted to learning, I love it. I would love to be an official student forever. But I’m cheap and so I look for much more affordable options than a university. There are so many avenues to learn, some more structured than others. I enjoy a class setting and the structure it offers.
One of my favorite avenues of classes has been Skillshare.com. Skillshare is an online community that offers a huge variety (10,000) of classes. I started out with the $0.99 three month trial, you can get this deal from a current premium member (link below). Everything is work at your own pace. During that time, I took classes on hand lettering, pasta making, baking, sewing pillow covers, interior decorating and arm knitting. These are just a few of the things I am interested in. I shared my account with my kids. Logan took a class on website and game design, Anna mastered the arm knitting class and made scarves for everyone in the family.
Once my three months was up, I renewed and now have a long list of classes I want to and will complete such as: Photoshop for beginners, making macaroons, watercolor, garden art, table top game design and crafting with leather. I love the variety!
I think learning keeps our minds sharp and our creative muscles strong. I encourage you to try it out! There is something for everyone in the family. Here is the link to: Try it for 3 months of the Skillshare Premium for $0.99
