It may not feel like it today, but Saturday (at least in NY) gave us all a taste of spring and a longing for summer weather. And summer weather brings to mind all kinds of fun things: ice cream, sunshine, trips to the beach, and . . . summer school!
Ok, before you call me crazy, hear me out! School may be the LAST thing you equate ‘summer fun’ with, but perhaps it just hasn’t been the right venue. I mean, if you could take a class while lounging by the pool, mouse in one hand and mojito in the other, would that feel more like fun? . . . Yup, we think so, too!
Online classes are the ideal way to do ‘summer school’ without the dread of sitting in a stuffy classroom while the sun beams outside. And you never have to worry about it being too far away! Whether you want to take class sitting in the park, on a rooftop lounge, or on the beach, an online class is available to you no matter where you are. And summer is a great time to do it! It’s usually a less stressful time for everybody. Even if the workload is the same, the summer vibes make you feel more relaxed. The extra hours of sunshine make you feel more energized and motivated. Most companies give their employees summer Fridays so you’ve got a little more time for personal care and development. And, it’s the 1st quarter, so everyone has hit reset on their budgets;)
If you’re nervous about taking an online class, don’t fret! It’s just like a regular class except you get to choose where you want to take it. But you’re still being taught by a real person (as long as it’s a LIVE, online class), you can ask questions, and you can interact with the instructor. And along with the benefit of being able to train anywhere, the session is recorded, so you can play it back in case you need to review something while you’re practicing later on.
Now is a perfect time to decide how you can fit ‘summer school’ into your summer plans. The 383 Design Studio calendar is already updated and we’ve got lots of Adobe for Fashion online classes to choose from. And the best part: you don’t have to be in NY to take one. No matter where you are, learning is just a WiFi connection away!
