Workshops are a curated set of classes designed to keep you engaged. There is a sense of community as you learn with other like-minded students and exchange feedback to improve your work. You can follow along using a set calendar and receive prompts to help you stay on track.

For example, you could take a portrait every day for 28 days as a community photography challenge. Or master Instagram for your business or personal brand over three weeks.

Instead of accredited or learning paths, you’ll find a recommended list, like learning the fundamentals of social media marketing, leadership 101, establish your writing practice, logo design essentials, explore hand lettering and calligraphy, introduction to branding, freelance essentials and more.
