Saturday Link List - Take a Class

I'm always looking for classes on the internet to take.  If they don't cost anything, all the better.  Many of my favorite topics include art, but I know there are other classes available, so I've included a whole array of topics.

Right now, I'm enrolled in an art journaling class called Weekly Art Date, taught by Moira Richardson.  She's always coming up with interesting topics and techniques, and she loves to teach using videos.  Moira's new blog has some of the things that we cover, but if you want to get the full benefit of the class, sign up at the Art Journaling Ning - her class is available on their site. The Ning's motto is "It's all good."  Various art journaling classes are available there, many for free.


I'm also interested in cleaning up the photographs I take.  After using Photoshop at work, I started telling my family how much I loved it.  Last year, I received Photoshop Elements as a birthday gift.  I had taken a night class in Photoshop a few years ago, but had forgotten much of what I learned.  So I  thought I might just take Suzie's "31 Days to Learning Photoshop Basics", over at The Accent Piece.  Great website, BTW.




For all those (would-bes, or) cooks out there, there is a real neat looking website called "The Kitchn" that has tutorials, information on kitchen tools, budgeting advices  and recipes for meals throughout the day.  Very professional looking!  



If you have sewing on your mind and would like to learn some fun quilting techniques, Amy Gibson has a website (www.craftsy.com) with a class called Block of the Month.  It's for both beginners and experiences quilters, and everyone is invited to share their finished products online.  I know a few people who would get a kick out of this site!  

Let me end with another website I found that I'm personally interested in.  It's called www.drawspace.com and has both guided courses and free downloadable lessons.  There are many topics and the classes are for  beginners, intermediate and advanced levels.  You can even keep track of your progress.  Their motto: "Now everyone can draw."  Neat!

I am always intrigued by online classes, but haven't taken any yet. Maybe I'm too stubborn to sit still for that long. Going to forward the drawspace link to one of my girls though, I think she will like it.

I'm a workshop junkie so love this post! I'm going to ck out the Photoshop class, as I could always learn more. I'm currently taking Klassen's Beyond Layers... would recommend any of her classes, btw.

Off to ck out the photoshop one and maybe the kitchen one!

Awesome round up! I really need to get and start learning Photoshop. A class like that would be perfect.

What great online classes! It's nice to know that no matter where you live, there are opportunities to learn from the keyboard anytime you want.
