Creating is fun, but it’s also a skill and if you have a passion for creating upgrading skills is always on the list of goals! I wanted to improve my skill level in a few creative areas with a limited budget, like the Free kind!
As a result, I’m sharing my favorite new resource to master creative skills with free online courses.
There are A LOT of online learning platforms to choose from. You can check out SkillShare, Udemy, MasterClass, and other popular platforms. All of these platforms have their pros and cons, but they were not specifically for creators.
