Workshop Wednesday ... Getting Arty in 2013 and Illustrator

I don't know about you, but I am always on the hunt for creative classes. My interest range is great and I just love sitting down with a good class, a hot beverage and my Mac to learn some new techniques or gain some inspiration. I never know what creative sparks will fly.

If you're a fan of Illustrator, but maybe your Illustrator skills are a little rusty ... or maybe you still need to get a design implemented for this year's Holiday Card ... at, Laura Coyle has put her Holly Shop Illustrator Workshop on sale for just $15.

In this workshop, Laura will guide you through the process of creating three holiday greeting card designs in Illustrator from start to finish. You'll customize the designs with your own photos and messages, and send them to print to share with friends and family. Laura has lots of Illustrator classes to choose from.

After the holidays come and go, and the long winter of sitting around by the fireplace snuggled with a good book starts to get old (actually ... I'm not sure that ever gets old), but perhaps it would be a good time to get out from underneath that warm hand made quilt or wool blanket ... and start getting creative?

If your looking for something artsy to occupy yourself next year, I found these 3 workshops offered by Strathmore. They are free, online courses, each with its own focus. Sign up for one, or sign up for all three ... or maybe pass on to a good friend?
