Artists: Teach an Online Art, Photography, or How-To Course For Added Income and Visibility


If you have ever thought of teaching an online art course to earn extra income, then you will want to take a look at the Craftsy site. Craftsy courses can be viewed in the Craftsy app for iPhone and iPad too! Here is an example of a basic painting video course:

Paint & Palette Essentials (w/ Jay Senetchko)

a color pencil portrait drawing course:

Radiant Portraits in Colored Pencil (w/ Kerry Brooks)

a photography business course:

Breaking Into the Business of Photography (w/ Catherine Asanov)

and an online jewelry making class available on Craftsy:

To help you get started, perhaps you could sign up for a full video course or a free mini-course on Craftsy to get a better idea of how to put your own course together.  Take a look at the mini-courses Craftsy offers to find where you might fill in the gaps with your own course–Here’s the full list of Craftsy free mini classes to choose from

Craftsy offers courses in cooking, crafts, gardening and woodworking as well as many other subjects.

When you sign up for a course you can share images of your completed project for visibility within one of your classes, or, you can also post a completed project from your My Craftsy page by clicking on the orange “+ Add a Project” button and follow the steps provided.

The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. This article may help get you thinking. Reviewing the Craftsy site and taking notes will help get you started developing your own course ideas.

Do you have knowledge to share in an area that is not currently offered on Craftsy, such as pastel painting, printmaking, or textile painting on silk? Or do you have more advanced skills to share on a subject?

You can contact the site owners here to propose your own course or to find out more about that process.
