Are there accredited online art courses?

I’m looking to do a course remotely because I’m working and don’t have enough time to attend a college. I’m interested in doing a creative course as I find these more interesting because they don’t need too much class time. What are the best online art courses which are recognized? Is there a possibility to find the best free online classes which also offer recognized degrees or certificates? I need cheap online courses which are also reliable. Also, how do online design classes work if you need to do a presentation?

Art is a very diverse subject, and so getting one particular program that satisfies all your requirements or needs might be difficult. There’s different kinds of art, e.g., Fine Art, Renaissance and Islamic Art, Art History and virtually every other facet you can think of. Before settling on any online art course, you should consider what exactly you need to learn from the course. The Khan Academy is a great place to start if you want to learn more about the history of art. Skillpunch is also a great place to start if you are looking for a more practical online design class and also some art history. As you can see, there are varied disciplines within the art, and you should have something more specific in mind before settling for an art course. What kind of art career do you see yourself going into? What are your interests?

Getting a free complete course may be very difficult, and even then you’ll rarely get any accreditation for such. YouTube is obviously a good choice if you are just an enthusiast or want to develop your talents. You can compile different lessons and gradually make a start towards training yourself. If you are looking for some sort of accreditation, you may want to consider distance learning options such as Stanford and Yale. If you are looking for some of the best free online art classes with a hint of technological design, Kadenze is a great place to start. Though they offer a free package with limited content. With their premium content, however, you can get course accreditations. They offer a cheap online course with all the benefits of a professional module. As mentioned you need to know what exactly in the art discipline you want to focus on and how much you want to focus on as part of your learning experience. Considering your presentation, if you are working on an accredited design course remotely, the school will obviously have some sort of mechanism to allow you to make your presentation although this might be a bit difficult. These are some of the difficulties of studying remotely. With MOOCs at least you have the freedom of choosing what really interests you unlike some conventional art courses in college which may not afford you that benefit. The most important is finding what works for you.
