Taking Online Art Classes with My Children

This post contains affiliate links.You all know that I’ve been taking a variety of online art classes with my kids through Craftsy. What I didn’t realize until I looked back through the last half year or so is just how many we have taken.

So, I thought I’d do a round up of my Craftsy classes and collect them all here in one spot.

So here you go. All the Craftsy art classes we’ve taken and enjoyed in one place.

Oh, and also one of their free online art classes and a few of their free e-guides, too…

“This Drawing the Human Body e-guide is excellent and there’s so much information in it, it’s hard to believe it’s free. I chose it for the subject matter, obviously, but also because Paul Heaston, one of the authors, is one of my favorite Craftsy instructors…”

Learn How to Use a DSLR Camera Online Class

Family Photography

“With my camera on automatic, it took okay photos—definitely better than my old Canon Powershot—but the potential for capturing my children and life around me with really good photographs has just skyrocketed. This is why I bought a DSLR in the first place. I’m so glad I know how to use it now!”

Mixed Media Online Art Classes

Mixed Media Techniques

“The nice thing about Craftsy is that you can pause a video lesson at any time, head to the playground or go prepare lunch, and resume at your own convenience. We’ve had many mini sessions this way. Sometimes we leave the materials and projects set up all day and just come and go here and there throughout the day.”

Figure Drawing Online Art Class

Figure Drawing

“For me, it’s been a chance to refresh/relearn drawing techniques and an excuse to actually draw again—something I’ve always enjoyed but was never amazing at. For Maia, it’s been a chance to draw with me, to sit down and do something together, and to learn some concrete drawing skills from a professional—different shading techniques, blocking-in, measuring proportions, etc.”

    Of the two dslr classes you took, which did you find most helpful? I’ve had my dslr for years and have never been able to figure out how to shoot in manual mode. :(

      I really enjoyed the first one I took (the family photography one) but if you like a more methodical approach, I’d suggest the basics class.
