Free Ways to Start a New Hobby

With stay-at-home going strong in many parts of the world, Netflix queues and animal shelters remain empty. With so much time spent indoors, especially during these cold winter days, some people may be finding themselves with an excess of free time (but not necessarily an excess of cash). If you’re considering using this time to pick up a new hobby or revisit an old one, I’ve collected some free resources for you to check out.

Drawabox.com – Free online lessons to teach adults the fundamentals of drawing. The creator built the program for beginners and self-taught artists.

Show Me Your Drills – Free modern calligraphy courses that open twice a year. The course includes printables to help you learn the basic strokes for lowercase modern calligraphy letters.

DIY Filming: Creating Pro Video with Tools You Already Own | Learn with Vimeo – Course from Skillshare to help you create, edit and share videos from your smartphone.

How To Set Up A Home Podcasting Studio To Sound Like a Pro – Another free course from Skillshare.

Please note: I am not affiliated with any of these programs. Most instructors that offer free courses supplement their income with paid courses. If you enjoy one of these free programs, I encourage you to consider one of the instructor’s paid programs as well. Support online – teachers so they can continue to offer free content. If you’d like your program to be inlcuded, please contact the webmaster.
