SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

Are there any good online courses for illustrating children's books?

Discussion started on

Does anyone have any recommendations for classes I can apply for online? I recently got my bachelor's degree online and really value the online experience with student and teacher feedback, while having the flexibility to submit assignments and leave student feedback at my own leisure (as long as I submit my work before the midnight deadline each week!). Does anyone have any recommendations? I want something as close to an authentic schooling experience as I can get. I'm looking more for a single course or maybe two courses, but not a whole degree.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
