 "I went from not knowing how to use a camera, to reaching 250,000 students around the world through my classes, books, membership, and workshops.  I want to share my whole class creation process with you, and help you create inspiring classes, shareable projects, and authentic marketing.”

coaching sessions

 

One thing that alumni of my class creation courses have made clear – they LOVE coaching sessions!  In each of the 5 coaching sessions we'll do a deep dive into an experienced class creator's process and business, so we can look for ways to find them more students and take the uncertainty out of marketing and class building.

peer group meetings

 

Every class creator in the workshop will be placed in a peer group with others in their time zone.  Each month, you'll meet with your peer group to work through the workshop topic of the month, and help support eachother in your class creation journey.

live Q&A sessions

 

There is no cookie cutter template to work from when you're making classes because each and every teacher has to find their own style and preferences when it comes to equipment, marketing strategies and class creation processes.  That is why the live Q&A sessions are so vital to this process -- you need time and space to ask questions, work through variables, and share your progress!

What Alumni Are Saying

"I really enjoyed this course, Liz shared great detail and useful examples throughout which really helped me with the practicalities of launching my first Skillshare course!"

Chloe of @MagicofFlorals

"If over delivering were a thing, Liz would be guilty. Liz provides everything…and I mean E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G you need to plan, organize, record, edit, troubleshoot, and market your course! I HIGHLY recommend this course if you have a class inside you just waiting to come out!

Are you worried you aren't qualified to teach?

  • Every beginner teacher feels like they aren't qualified to teach, but what I don't hear enough people say is that beginners are the best teachers!
  • When you have "beginner's mind" you can speak to other beginners in the logical and clear way that they need.
  • Here's a secret: I taught my first iPad based class one week after getting my iPad.  Do you think my students cared how long I had been drawing on my iPad?  No! They were focused on learning the information I was presenting, not on my qualifications.

Every month, you'll get lessons, live calls, and coaching sessions in your inbox.

What Alumni Are Saying

"Liz does an amazing job of stepping you through all the basics of course creation... from the initial planning phase to filming, editing, publishing, and even marketing your course. This class is perfect for beginners, but even the seasoned educator can learn new tips on how to improve their courses and grow their reach!"

Laura Lee Griffin of LauraLeeGriffin.com

"I'm so glad I took Liz's Course Creators course because at the time I was stuck in the process of producing my first online class. Liz took me through her seamless process of creating online classes while helping address any obstacles along the way. After taking this course I was able to publish my first class on Skillshare with confidence. One of the best features of this course is the monthly zoom calls where we get together to discuss issues and challenges and also offer mutual support. I always learned a lot from the conversations."

What Alumni Are Saying

"I have learned so much through Liz's class. I have been working with Skillshare as a former academic instructor and there was alot of learning curves. Liz's class helped to break it all down so it was more approachable and realistic. She really helps set a gentle and nurturing but realist tone throughout the entirity of the course. Thank you Liz for an incredible experience."

Jennifer Sakarian of Belair Fresh Prints

"Really recommended. I have learned a lot. I could not have discovered all this myself."
