Udemy is having a fire sale on all of its courses including dozens of art classes
The online learning academy Udemy has hundreds of courses on almost any subject matter – from professional skills to personal development – offering a range of topics. Udemy is one of the internet’s most robust online learning platforms.
Today, March 31st, is the last day of a spectacular Udemy sale, where users can purchase courses that include hours and hours of online training. These courses normally retail for hundreds of dollars but can be now purchased for as little as $10.99.
In the art realm, these online tutorials include:
- The Ultimate Drawing Course – Beginner to Advanced
- Complete Beginner’s Guide to Digital Art
- Pixel Art For Video Games
- The Art & Science of Drawing
Perhaps photography is your game
There are, similarly, a number of incredible photography courses on sale as well. Again starting at $10.99.
For instance, The Photography Masterclass: A Complete Guide to Photography, is on sale for $14.99. It features 22 hours of on-demand video, 63 articles, 31 downloadable documents and resources.
Users learn skills such as how to shoot photos for portraits, landscapes, products or wildlife; optimizing lighting; understanding the ins-and-outs of your camera; learning the fundamentals of composing; and most importantly, how to process workflow and edit your photos.
Perhaps you need to smarten up on Adobe Suite? Try these on for size:
Thank God for the Internet. In years past, one would have to spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars and commit to tedious, long-winded, in-person classroom attendance to learn these skills. Fortunately, it’s now all accessible in your home at the touch of a button.
Today is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of this coronavirus downtime to learn new skills, up-level existing skills and gain mastery over your passions — passions you may even monetize, perhaps.
And to respond to the objections: yes it’s true, many of these skills can be learned for free on YouTube, but Udemy curates and packages it so well that for $10 bucks it’s totally worth it to cut through the mud.
So get on it!
