Summary
Craftsy logoCraftsy

Craftsy has found an interesting niche, focusing their offering on arts & crafts. We like that their subscription plan is affordable, and they have a wide selection of courses, when it comes to the topics of arts & crafts. If you want to learn about different topics, Craftsy wouldn't be the right platform for you. We therefore recommend Craftsy to students that want to exclusively learn about arts & crafts, with a focused course offering.

CreativeLive logoCreativeLive

CreativeLive has a wide variety of creative classes in their catalog. We particularly like that their subscription plan is rather cheap and the production value of their courses is pretty high. Compared to other platforms with similar offerings however, we feel like CreativeLive's catalog is a bit smaller, and their user interface could use some updates. Overall, CreativeLive is a good platform for students that want to learn new creative skills.
