Dash of Inspiration: Live and Learn
Enjoy life, it’s so much better when we are learning something new or refining what we know. Today I wanted to share some interesting finds with those of you who may intend to set New Year’s Resolution to expand their card designing skill set. I have no personal recommendation for these sites, just thought they looked interesting for those wishing to learn more …
First up is a site called Skill Share which comes highly recommended from friends of mine. If you wish to refine just about any area of your craft, this place has some awesome online lessons.
Next is Lynda.com has online courses in 3D, Photography, Design and Business to name a few and has a great reputation as an online learning institute.
The New York Institute of Photography has been around for more years than I can count and now offers their courses online. If you REALLY want to become a professional photographer in today’s world, you need to go back to the basics of photography. Understanding film, processing, and how all that is ‘imitated’ via our digital cameras of today will set the professional photographer apart from the amateur.
Live Painting Lessons.com has many online courses which are video tutorials to help someone get started in, or improve,painting with oils and acrylics.
Drawspace.com has many online lessons for learning how to draw, from the basics of composition and perspective, to drawing specific subjects.
Learn Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel or any use of artist tools by simply searching online for video tutorials, classes and lessons. Many are free, some you pay by course, but anything you wish to learn in the way of improving your creative endeavors … there are classes online.
So until next week, create, learn and inspire others!
