Skillshare – my favorite tutorial site

 

Last year I was determined to grow as an artist in new directions- I was able to upgrade my computer and imaging gear, pay for the Adobe Creative Cloud and use all their programs beyond the photographic ones, and I traveled outside of my normal LA/ Seattle/ Arizona loop.

    1. I would suggest making a few classes quickly, back to back, and make improvements each time you do one- you’ll know where the deficiencies are as soon as you’ve published them. Also it’s easier to get past the 25 signup mark if you make your classes more beginner level, and getting past 25 is when you start getting paid! You can do more in-depth tutorials as the months go on and your channel will develop its own flavor, but out of the gate you want to accumulate followers and up the quality of your classes.

      1. Thank you so much for the advise! I’m still working on the first class but as soon as I get it up, I’ll then start on a second class. It’s a good idea to go more in-depth as the month goes on, I like that.
