I don't know of online classes, but there is a wealth of information available in the form of online videos. Many of us have learned a lot from watching YouTube video tutorials posted by members of this forum. Here are some:

Gene Messer: YouTube - whittler0507's Channel
Arlene (carverswoodshop): YouTube - carverswoodshop's Channel
Allen Goodman: YouTube - allengoodman69's Channel
Graywolf: YouTube - graywolf71's Channel
Dave Brock: YouTube - HillsnHollers446's Channel

Most have projects that range in difficulty from very simple beginner to moderately advanced. I've found them incredibly helpful.

As for wood, most of the members here will recommend ordering from Heinecke Wood Products.

This is great advice, and the videos are free!

Welcome to forum fisheye. I would have to ditto Don's sentiments.
As for the wood Heinecke IS a great source.
They have an impressive website to get whatever working piece you need.
Have fun with it,
Jim
