Why take an online art class? Here are some possible reasons:
- You are interested in art, but have no time for a traditional art class
- You are shy about learning a new skill around others
- You want to improve your skills to apply to art school
- You are homebound
- You need a hobby
Let's look at each of these in turn. If you are interested in art, but don't have the time to take a traditional art class, an online art class might be just the ticket. Generally, with online classes, you can do the class work anytime that it is convenient for you. You'll find the same is true with online art classes. Wouldn't it be wonderful to learn a new skill such as painting, from the convenience of your own home? This is also a great option for the busy career person. Perhaps you are looking for a way to wind down from the hectic pace of your professional life? An online art class might be just the thing.
On the other hand, perhaps you have always wanted to study art, but are nervous about taking an art class around other people. You fear that everyone will have lots of talent, and you're not sure about your own. While we are certain that you have talent to spare, an online art class could be a wonderful way to boost your confidence. You can hone your skills in the privacy of your own home before venturing onto another art class.
The same is true if you are homebound. If you are recovering from an illness or surgery, an online art class will give you something to fill your time. If you are permanently homebound, taking an art class will give you a wonderful new hobby.
And, if you have plans to apply to an art or design college but are a bit worried about your talent, why not try taking an art class to hone your skills? It is a wonderful way to review the basics and practice techniques.
What might you learn in an online art class? Depending on which art class you choose, you will learn the basics such as design and composition, which tools and supplies are best and drawing skills. If you decide to take a more advanced art class, you might learn about the color wheel, including value, tone and hue. Even if you are interested in landscape or portrait painting, there is a school somewhere that offers an online program for you. Some classes also encourage critiques from other students. You'll post your work online and the teacher and other students will tell you how you are doing.
Taking an online art class can be the perfect solution to finding your way in the art world. Take a look around on the internet-you'll be amazed at the wide variety of art classes waiting for you.
