CreativeLive is like grad school for enterprising creators. It offers in-depth videocourses to elevate your craft—whether you’re into photography or lithography, metalsmithing or heavy metal music.
Instructors are standouts in their respective fields. Gimlet Media cofounder Alex Blumberg teaches how to “Power Your Podcast With Storytelling.” Best-selling self-help author Tim Ferriss has a 16-part course on becoming “healthy, wealthy, and wise.”
CreativeLive classes meet you at your level, wherever that may be. Do you have years of experience and want to dive into the nuances of lighting in commercial photography? There’s an 80-minute course for you. Still learning the basic rule of thirds? Enroll in a class on snapping better iPhone pics.
The app helps you develop more than your skills; you’ll also learn how to market and monetize them. Turn to the Money & Life section for tips on launching an Etsy shop, starting a freelance business, or building your brand.
Most courses are available for purchase, which gives you lifetime access. If you’d prefer to start with one of the many free courses, we suggest “30 Days of Genius,” in which CreativeLive founder Chase Jarvis interviews a wildly diverse roster of guests—from Sir Richard Branson to Sir Mix-A-Lot.
