Cory D. says, "I could leave a novel length review regarding how good my experience was with my first round of sessions were with Alfredo. I had absolutely no experience painting with oils prior to my classes. As our sessions went on, Alfredo created snd altered my class structure to accommodate what I needed. He didn't just teach me how to put oils on a canvas, but explained the importance of everything from the care and cleaning of your brushes, materials he recommended all the way to explaining color theory, sketching and more. He has played an integral role in me using art and painting to finding peace and putting smiles on my face. I cant wait to see my progress in our next round of sessions. Not only is Alfredo a great instructor, but hes my mentor and my friend. Hes helped a U.S. Marine Combat Veteran find a way to push an illness aside and use art to be happy. I hope I'm able to attach my paintings below. One is my very first completed painting and one about to be completed, and could not look anything like they do with Alfredo's guidance. They are pieces painted prior from other artists." Read more

Your Art Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do art classes cost near me?

Art classes cost $20 to $50 for a one-time session or $100 to $500 for a class including 6 to 10 weekly sessions. Prices for art classes depend on your location, the type of art, the school or museum offering the class, and whether the fee includes materials and art supplies. Most art instructors provide a list of the required supplies which you must purchase separately.

Can you take art classes online?

You can take art classes online through CreativeLive, Udemy, ed2go, and art specialty websites like New Masters Academy (NMA) or The Art Studio NY. Many museums, universities, studios, and individual artists also offer online art classes.

Prices for online art classes are similar to in-studio classes and primarily depend on the instructor's artistic reputation and whether the course features prerecorded videos or is held live.

What types of art classes are available?

Popular art classes offered in most locations include:

  • Drawing and sketching
  • Painting with watercolor, oil, acrylics, or pastels
  • Printmaking
  • Fabric painting
  • Ceramics
  • Sculpture
  • Jewelry making
  • Glasswork
  • Fiber arts

How do I find the best art classes near me?

Before you take the next step in your creative journey, follow these tips to ensure you find an art class that's a good fit for you:

  • First, determine what type of art you'd like to learn.
  • Decide if you want to take a one-time workshop or a multi-week course.
  • Read instructor reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Browse their portfolio of artwork created by their past students.
  • Ask about fees, class sizes, and supplies needed.
  • Visit the studio or classroom in person to check it out before signing up for a class.
  • Wear clothes that can get dirty. Some classes have aprons, but you may still get paint or other art products on your clothes.

What questions should I ask before signing up for art classes?

Before you sign up for an art class, be sure to ask the instructor these questions:

  • Which class should I take as a first-time art student?
  • Does the fee include materials and supplies? If not, do you provide a supply list?
  • What subjects do the art lessons cover?
  • Where will the class meet?
  • Are the classes restricted to certain age groups?
  • How many students will be in the class?
  • Do you offer online art classes? Are the online classes taught live or prerecorded?
  • Can I buy a class as a gift for someone?

Alfredo's instruction has been an enriching experience, going beyond the mere act of painting to impart a profound understanding of the world of art. He provided me with a wide range of reading materials, including numerous books on composition and an assortment of volumes dedicated to the intricacies of coloring. His classes are inspiring, igniting the passion within me to explore the multifaceted realms of art and painting.
Painting Lessons With a Classically Trained Artist
Matthew B.
He is able to break almost every complex art related task down into reachable step-by-step exercises. It may seem formulaic at first, but that approach worked to quickly facilitate for me a solid understanding of perspective, figure drawing, portrait painting, and even sculpture. His critiques can seem brutally honest, but that’s an asset which also helped stimulate some rapid artistic growth for me.

I know how to draw now! I took drawing lessons with bert a couple of months ago and could tell that they had had a lot of experience teaching drawing to people who didn’t feel confident with their skills. They had a really kind and encouraging teaching style, and exercises that were very thoughtfully paced to guide me step-by-step to developing my skills. I could see the plan from the beginning and felt confident that I’d make improvements—and I did!
