I honestly believe that education is very important; it's why so many people every year are jumping into colleges to learn more about their crafts. Now that I have finished college for over a year( woot woot!!) I have found another place to learn more about what I love, through a source called Creative Live. How it works: CreativeLive brings in specialist/ artists from all over the world and records them in the Creativelive studios in Seattle, Washington. (Learn more about the history here) When you sign up for the class that you want you can watch the live broadcast for free and if you miss anything you can purchase the class to watch it over and over and over again to your hearts content.
CreativeLive gives me the opportunity to learn from some of the masters of the photography while I sit back with a cup of coffee and soak everything up like a sponge. Some of the people I enjoy watching the most has been Jasmine Star, Sue Bryce, Lara Jade just to name a couple. But if photography is not for you there are a load of other classes to choose from - Photo & Video, Art& Design, Music & Audio, Craft & Maker, or Money & Life.
Seriously, these classes are free when you watch them live and trust me my friend it is totally worth checking out if you have the time. What is amazing is these artists want to help people grow, because if I grow they grow! It is so refreshing to have people so open and letting me in a small part of their world. They are not paying me to promote (Wouldn't that be nice ;)), but if you are wanting to learning something new or expand your knowledge Creative Live is a great resource and tool.
