As the days grow shorter and colder, we head indoors for the fall and winter. While inside, it's the perfect time to discover something new to love. Get expert instruction on how to do just that when enrolling in a class on My Modern Met Academy. Our e-learning platform features a variety of courses including, drawing, painting, crafting, and photography. Each online class is broken down into bite-sized lessons that you can watch from anywhere and as many times as you like.
When trying to decide on an Academy class, first consider what you’re interested in. Have you wanted to try a cozy craft like embroidery? If so, enroll in Intermediate Embroidery: Getting Creative with Printed Fabrics. Although it says “intermediate” in the title, this class is suitable for a motivated beginner because instructor Floor Giebels will demonstrate all of the stitches you’ll need to know for her project. When you complete the course, you’ll know how to produce creative embroidery on printed fabrics.
Maybe you’re looking for a class where you can really express yourself. In that case, give Abstract Realism: Introduction to Mixed Media Painting a try. Taught by Dimitra Milan, she’ll show you how to create a canvas in what she calls “abstract realism.” You'll start with an abstract background, draw out your subject, and then use acrylics to bring it to life.
