I’ve spoken many times about being an eternal learner. I love to absorb new information, new techniques, and new tips and tricks. I spend a lot of time in person and online taking courses. I was just on a fabulous, very arty and messy in-person course last weekend. Driving through the atmospheric misty autumn moors and Scottish mountains set the scene for the day and a wander round an art gallery and book shop finished the day off beautifully. Good for the soul. However, I digress, what I’m here to talk about today is online courses. They are much more accessible; location, mobility, time … online courses tick the box for many people.
Every year, The Creative Bundle gathers together a bunch of creatives and their online content – videos, e-books, e-courses etc and provides a bundle that you can purchase at a significant discount. Well, I can’t believe how they’ve done this, but they have 56 creatives providing content, and together, the total cost of their online content would be $3328.86. However, they are selling the course for …
I’ve linked all supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
The thing to remember about the bundle is that it only matters if you fancy a couple of courses. The value is there by only dabbling with a sample of what is on offer but what is on offer is wide and varied to cater for many tastes. There is a lot of painting and mixed-media content which of course appeals to me but there is so much more – ceramics, lettering, weaving, embroidery, cake decorations, paper flowers … I know many people don’t just like one particular art but are drawn to many creative fields.
I have the bundle and am now debating whether to start with Laly Mille’s Wild Roses course, or Denise Peter’s Beginner’s Guide To Gouache, or some up-cycling with Yeaca Young’s Caffeinated Botanicals … now my only issue is time!
OK, that’s me for today. I will be back later in the week with a new little something to share from Simon Says Stamp!
