I’m a big fan of web-based and self-paced learning, and it’s amazing what you can find online these days! I love watching YouTube How-To videos, but what’s even better are the FREE and low-cost classes that you can find over at Craftsy.com. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve taken their Online Knitting Class using my iPad in my spare time, and found it super fun and easy to follow. Their special software makes it really straightforward and organized to follow, and you can use a PC, laptop, tablet, or even your SmartPhone to take online lessons on your own schedule.

I was looking to see what’s new over in their course offerings and spotted a GREAT new class especially for Pet Lovers! It’s Pet Portraits taught by Pat Weaver, and it’s on sale for $19.99. That’s 33% OFF the regular price of $29.99 and you get:

  • 6 HD video lessons with anytime, anywhere access
  • Downloadable class materials, including supplies and a color wheel
  • Over 2.5 hours of close-up instruction

One really cool thing about Craftsy classes is that once you buy one, it’s yours to keep and take over and over again anytime you want. You can skip around in the lessons, or do them in order from start to finish. When you have questions or need help, you can post messages for the instructor and other students. You can also see photos that other students post of their finished projects, which I find great inspiration. They also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!

Class Description

Capture your darling dog or cat in a lovable, lifelike work of art! Join renowned animal artist Pat Weaver and discover how easy it is to photograph, sketch and paint your pet. Find out how to select the best source photo for your piece, and discover Pat’s easy process for quickly and accurately sketching any dog or cat. Use a simple template and transfer method to translate your sketch to canvas, and then explore value and color. Work with acrylic paint to mix lovely grays and neutral hues that are ideal for animal features and fur, and practice painting expressive eyes with realistic warmth. Follow Pat through three demonstrations as you create your own pet portrait, using loose, fluid brushstrokes to develop fur and whiskers and layer colors for a dimensional effect.

Keep in mind that you will need to buy a few art supplies locally, but the instructor has a downloadable list of everything you’ll need. You can also read reviews posted by other students. One review I read says that this was “the best class I’ve ever taken” which is pretty high praise, indeed! Head on over to Craftsy and check out the Pet Portrait Class while it’s on sale!

Mom Corps YOU: Career and Freelance Tools & Training + Special Discount #MC

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

As a work-from-home freelancer and blogger, I’m participating in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Mom Corps YOU. I received a free trial subscription to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for my time. All opinions are 100% my own.

momcorps tools

If you’re reading this, then you’ve probably already figured out that I’m a blogger, but you might not know that I also do freelance work from home to help pay the bills. It all began shortly after I was laid off from my full-time corporate marketing job a few years ago. It had been years since I’d even updated my resume! I’d been in the same career and industry for so long, and there were so many people out of work at the time, that I found it very difficult to find a new full-time job, and decided to try working for myself.

Little by little, I’ve been building up my own business, helping brands and other small businesses to promote their products and services with online marketing and social media. I love the flexibility and freedom that freelancing offers, but it was really tough figuring out how to get started,

I didn’t have access to a lot of resources or support, which is why I was super excited when I was recently invited to try out Mom Corps YOU — an online community designed to help women with professional development, start a new business and lots more! Mom Corps believes that work-life satisfaction is best achieved when you can take ownership of several key areas of your life, including career, finances and health & wellness, and this subscription-based community provides education, resources and tools to help you do just that.

momcorps you

I’ve been using the tools and resources at Mom Corp YOU and am really impressed with the range of webinars, articles, templates and checklists available. Whether you’re a mom who is looking to return to the workforce, someone who’s always wanted to start her own business, want help learning to better manage household finances, or need to develop more work-life balance, there’s something for everyone! They’ve also got forums so you can chat with other members, and Live Chat to connect you with a Mom Corp Recruiter.

Another thing I love is that it’s designed to be flexible, so you can take advantage of most of the resources on your own schedule using your laptop, iPad or pretty much any device that can browse the web. I recently enjoyed a Mom Corps presentation on Freelancing and got some great tips and new ideas.

Go HERE to sign up for an annual introductory subscription for $99.99 ($149.99 reg) or $19.99/month.
