Learn a New Skill with Skillshare: 2 Free Months Promotion

Happy, happy August! Happy Monday! It’s time to recalibrate if you haven’t done so already. I am excited for this month because I’ll be completing my Adobe course with Skillshare. Learning a new skill is my love language – I love learning new things everyday. For those who don’t follow me on IG, I’ve been sharing a bit of what I’ve been up to these last couple of weeks through stories. I finally mustered enough courage to sign-up for Skillshare and you can bet I will be taking advantage of my first TWO FREE months.

What is Skillshare?

I first learned about Skillshare through podcasts. I want to say it was Jenna Kutcher, host of the Goal Digger podcast, who introduced me to Skillshare sometime last year. Skillshare is an online resource to either share a skill or learn a skill. There is a variety of online courses covering a vast amount of topics.

“Skillshare is an online learning community with thousands of classes for creative and curious people, on topics including illustration, design, photography, video, freelancing, and more. On Skillshare, millions of members come together to find inspiration and take the next step in their creative journey.”

I signed up for the Graphic Design Masterclass since I am interested in mastering Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. The class seemed like the appropriate introductory course. Last week, I completed the design theory chapters and currently finishing up the Photoshop portion. I must say, I am blown away by the quality, thoughtfulness, and production that went into developing this specific class. (Thanks to the creator, Lindsay Marsh!) She sometimes goes a little too fast but I just stop and rewind to really absorb the information. You can bet I am pretty determined on making the most of this experience.

Once I complete the Adobe course, I plan to take a photography class. Let’s be real – ya’ girl could use some help, haha! Anyway, I put Skillshare on hold for the longest time because I wasn’t in a place to dedicate time to yet another thing. I really believe you have to set time aside in your calendar to stay committed, and finally, I am in a place where I am able to do this. (I mean, let’s be real, I feel like I am going 100 MPH most times, but like I said, if it’s in my calendar, I’ll do it!)

Ps. I created the cover of this blog post on Photoshop 😉 Something I found so confusing to use at one point…needless to say, I am excited about the creative possibilities!
