Great Opportunities

My classroom.

With all that is going on right now, it is great to see so many free online learning options as well as free performance arts.  I am currently taking a class from FutureLearn called A History of Royal Fashion.  It starts in the Tudor period and is fascinating.  Best of all, it is totally free.

Milk Street is offering their online cooking school free through April.  Natalie Maclean offered an online wine and food pairing seminar that my friend took and enjoyed. has a list of their free online courses which sound very enticing.  Blueprint (which used to be Craftsy) is offering unlimited access to their classes free through April 9.

Some experiences are reduced cost.  Erykah Badu offered a virtual concert for $1.  And some offerings are fundraisers.

JoAnn Fabrics is offering free mask making kits for those who are willing to make masks for healthcare workers.  Once made, they can be returned to the store for donation locally.  Free patterns and tutorials are available on their website as well.

My email inbox keeps me informed of options for entertainment, so there is no need to be bored right now.  Later today I will probably watch Google Earth’s virtual tour of cherry blossoms around the world.

Since we all have a little more time in our day (many of us have no need to put on make-up or do our hair!), it is great to have so many resources and opportunities available.   Think of something you want to learn or see and do some research on the internet to see if it is available to you.
