I didn't take any online classes when I started, because I started at a time (long ago) when online classes did not exist!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ In addition to actual classes, you might consider free YouTube videos. Not to be too self-serving, but I have lots of free cookie videos on my YouTube channel (ww.youtube.com/JuliaMUsher). SweetAmbs has a tremendous YouTube channel focused in cookie decorating too. Have fun exploring!

Welcome to the cookie community. It was so long ago that I started decorated cookies there werenโ€™t online classes. My first class was at Michaels because my daughter was interested. She lost interest, but I didnโ€™t. I learned a lot about how to make cookies and we worked in buttercream. There werenโ€™t many cookie decorating classes so I went and took Michaels cake classes. Cakes were never right for me and I started doing cookies with friends' advice and Karenโ€™s Cookies.  Karen is Karen of Karen and Mike summers who do CookieCon. Their website is gone, but CookieCon has made cookie decorating big business.  To answer your question, I would work in the little things like how to make rolled out cookies, how to make royal icing, and how to hold a piping bag. If I was you, I would look into Bearfoot Baker. Lisa has been doing it a long time and is geared towards basics.  Lisa is very friendly and is happy to help beginners. Once you get the basics, you find a few cookiers you like (like Julia) and imitate their work until you find the style you enjoy. Good luck.
