Skillshare Classes I’m Taking & Loving

I have been on a Skillshare kick lately, and I wanted to share some of my favorite classes.

Introduction to Procreate: Illustrating on the iPad Pro with Procreate

I’ve been using Procreate for 6+ months now, and I still learned so many tricks during this class. I took the class on my lunch break one day at work, and I couldn’t wait to get home and try some of her techniques. Next time I plan to rematch when I have my iPad in front of me.

Shortcuts to Map Making for Illustrators: Illustrate Your Favorite City

I love illustrated maps, and one of my illustration goals is to start making my own. I even drew a little map of our venue for the back of our wedding invitations! I’d eventually like to create an illustrated map of Boston that I can screen print onto totes or tea towels, but the first step is to learn the technique itself. I haven’t finished this class yet, but I’m enjoy it so far—and it’s just fun to look at all of Anne’s illustrations!

Product Photography Basics for Your Handmade Business

If I’m being honest, I haven’t been spending as much energy on my Etsy shop as when I first started it, and it’s showing. Taking Kristina Turner’s class on simple and professional product photos (that don’t require a ton of equipment) is one of the steps I’m taking to improve my shop. The class is well-paced and full of tips that feel very do-able for someone who isn’t doing this full-time. I purchased a simple tripod for my DSLR the other day, and I can’t wait for a cloudy day to get started.

Teacher Tips: Building a Successful Skillshare Channel

Skillshare’s been beefing up its teacher support system this year, and I am loving it! One of my goals this year is to publish two more classes and I want to start building my channel and brand on there with better quality videos.

Teacher Tips: Easy Tips and Tricks for Using iMovie to Edit Your Skillshare Class

I’ve been waiting for a class like this since I started teaching on Skillshare! The hardest part for me is editing the video for my classes, and this intro to iMovie was such a great crash course to get me started. I’m actually excited to edit my next class because of Tabitha’s course. I even went back and edited the intro video for my screen printing class because of it!
