Explore the Best Art Classes Online

Art includes various styles, techniques, and mediums and can affect and change how individuals see the world. It is an essential skill and a productive hobby. Taking an art class is one of the best ways to learn art, including drawing, painting, clay molding, soap making, flower arranging, and more. 

Why You Should Learn Art Online

There are many benefits to learning art online. By taking an online art class, you can relieve stress and enjoy a productive hobby during your free time. In addition, once you’ve mastered the skill, you can create art projects as a side job, start a full-time business, or create handmade gifts for friends and family. 

Art classes also connect you to a larger community. When you take a class online, you can make friends across the country and connect with people with different life experiences. As a result, you can join clubs, groups, and events with other like-minded people. 

Virtual Art Classes 

Virtual art classes provide students with flexibility and options. Rather than driving to meet with an in-person class, you can take the art course from the comfort of your home. In addition, there are often more class options when you take the class online. The downside of online courses is that the teacher doesn’t always provide the class materials. When booking a class through CourseHorse, you can check the class description to see whether the materials are provided. 

CourseHorse offers many great online art classes. No matter your interests, you should be able to find a course that teaches the skills you’re interested in learning. For example, CourseHorse offers a Painting Seascapes with Watercolor class for $335 that starts on April 21st. The course spans six two-and-a-half-hour sessions and teaches students how to capture the beauty of the ocean in watercolor. 

For just $25, you can take a one-hour Virtual Melt & Pour Soap-Making Workshop on May 13th. You will need to prepare your materials beforehand, and the teacher will walk you through how to make candles in the comfort of your home.

Starting on May 17th, you can take a Painting the Natural World class that includes six sessions that meet for two and a half hours each. Although the course is remote, it takes place in the Chicago Botanic Garden, so students will overlook the beautiful greenery of the well-known garden. The class costs $349. 

CourseHorse’s Color Mixing class costs $374 and focuses on teaching students color theory. Over six sessions, students will learn to mix color, create color wheels, mimic shadows, and paint from live garden specimens. The class starts on June 4th. 

On July 17th, CourseHorse’s Portrait Beginners' Guide class begins. It includes three two-hour classes that teach students the basics of portrait art. Another fun class option is PHONE-ography 101, which includes two sessions for $115 and teaches students how to capture professional-level photos using nothing but a smartphone. This class begins on May 1st. 

Private Online Group Art Classes

Businesses and organizations can schedule private online group art classes. These classes will help the team bond and relax as they immerse themselves in a new skill. Some employees might find new hobbies and interests after the class as well. CourseHorse’s private online group art classes for businesses don’t have booking fees and have flexible group sizes that can even be changed after the booking. Once you schedule your class, you will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours. 

CourseHorse offers a wide range of classes, ranging from fun art games to instructive art classes. For example, you can book a Virtual Cartooning & Doodling Workshop for up to 250 people. Participants only need paper, a pen or pencil, and an eraser to participate fully. The class will teach the group how to create a cartoon style and become familiar with drawing unique characters. 

CourseHorse’s Virtual Macrame Workshop will teach participants how to create plant hangers using knot patterns. Students will learn unique knots to create beautiful knotted patterned textiles. The class includes all materials, and everything will be shipped to the participants before the beginning of the course.

Online vs. In-Person Art Classes

When looking for an art class, you can choose between online and in-person courses. Both offer 1-on-1 instruction, personalized feedback, and unique opportunities to connect with classmates. Three things you should consider when deciding between online and in-person art classes include the following. 

  • Ability to travel: If you prefer not to travel, online art classes are the best option.
  • Materials: Online art classes don’t always include materials. So, if you’re unsure how to find art materials, in-person classes might be more convenient. 
  • Proximity to classmates: Bonding with classmates is a fun part of taking art classes. Although you can make friends in an online class, getting to know your classmates in an in-person course is easier.

If you plan to take multiple classes, feel free to try out both formats. CourseHorse offers a wide range of courses for beginners, intermediate learners, and experts to ensure you’re always getting the instruction you need. 

Can I Learn Art for Free Online?

Learning art online for free is simple. You can find thousands of resources on YouTube and other media-sharing platforms. These offer amazing opportunities to master skills, learn new techniques, or gather art ideas from other art experts. The only downside is that you won’t get personalized feedback with a driven art course. By taking an art class instead, you will learn faster and have a more thorough experience.
