Her television series may be ending, but she will be teaching those who want to learn her craft! MasterClass has announced that talented actor Issa Rae will teach a class on creating outside the lines.

MasterClass, which is a streaming platform where anyone can learn from the world’s best across a wide range of subjects, is hosting a platform for Rae to reach eager students who want to take notes from the Insecure star.

“A lot of people enter the industry thinking their ideas have to be perfect and fit into a specific kind of box, but that’s never been part of my process,” Rae said in a written statement. “In my MasterClass, I want to tell you everything that I’ve gone through, every mistake that I’ve made, and everything that I’ve learned so far so that you can do better than I did. If you have a desire to create, this class is for you.”

Through a series of lessons, the Emmy® Award-nominated creator of HBO’s Insecure uses her signature do-it-yourself ethos, humor and voice to teach MasterClass members how to stay motivated and which tools they will need to embark on their creative journey. Students will learn to develop their own voice and how to take their ideas to the next level. Rae’s class is available on MasterClass, where subscribers will be able to enjoy unlimited access to all 100+ instructors with an annual membership.

“Issa is one of the most celebrated creators in recent history because of her authenticity and unflinching boldness when it comes to storytelling,” said David Rogier, founder and CEO of MasterClass. “Her MasterClass at its core is about inspiring action and not being discouraged by roadblocks. Our members will walk away feeling motivated and ready to act on the ideas and stories that have been brewing within them.”
