10 Free Online Art Classes Curated For You

One of my favorite things in the world is online art classes. I teach them and I’ve taken about a million myself. They help us to grow as artists, teach us techniques we never knew about before, and keep us company in the studio. Today, I’ll be sharing with you my curated list of ten free online art classes.

I’ve been a part of an artist business group for the last year.

Before that, I’d been going at business alone, which is very typical for an artsy online business.

But let me tell you, I DO NOT enjoy that much isolation. So, it’s been a real gift to me to have met some great people in the group. Other artists and teachers who are smart and innovative. They’re collaborative and generous. I’ve been blown away at just how accomplished, caring, and creative they all are.

They’ve worked hard on these classes and love sharing them with others. This list is a treasure box full of workshops to help you grow your art practice with lots of love and enthusiasm. Plus, you’ll learn some art skills to boot! (there’s my Texas comin’ out 🤠)
