15+ Art Classes Online to Spark Your Imagination This Week

Have I mentioned how much I love online classes? Well I do, and here’s an excellent list of classes deepen our understanding of the art we make. School is never out for me, and the great thing about being an adult now is that I can choose what I want to learn!

For many people, school is out for the summer and they won’t even think about learning for the next couple of months. But if you wish you could be back in the classroom, getting there is easier than you think. Creative online classes allow you to learn new skills or refresh yourself on some of your favorite subjects like drawing, photography, and much more.

This is fantastic; looking at experienced people through a lens that is open to our value.
It’s great.
But, personally, screw that. I’m not waiting to persuade anybody to open their eyes to my value as an older person. I plan to be undeniable, thanks.

The future of retail isn’t e-commerce. It’s Instagram

The future of retail isn’t e-commerce. It’s Instagram

Hmmm…it’s probably a function of older eyes (and mine have issues beyond that). Having said that, I bet there’ll be a backlash as these young retailers get older and want to look at a rather larger image of the thing they’re keen to get.

I am a huge fan of http://www.openculture.com, especially when I’m stuck creatively – it’s one of my go-to sources online for…well, surprise. And wonder. And things I didn’t know existed. Or things that I used to know.
The Met is filled with memories for me, though I haven’t been in decades. When I do get back to New York City, back home, that will be one of my ‘must’ destinations…In the meantime, here’s so much of the collection to enjoy online.
