Many of my students have been with me for years, and we all welcome new painters. Their work is diverse and their progress is clear. I try to take the worry out of the room. Fundamentals are important, and so is fun. Much class time is spent with individuals at their easels. I love Tuesday afternoons. There is warmth and camaraderie and appreciation as we explore color and composition and new and better ways to paint.

Your Painting Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do painting classes cost?

Painting classes cost $200 to $500 for a 5- to 10-week course, or $20 to $80 per person for a single session. Local, city-sponsored classes typically cost less than private lessons or college courses. Some painting classes offer discounts for friends, children, or other groups.

Some instructors include all materials in their prices, while others require that you buy some or all of them yourself. Online painting classes can be done anywhere and can be paused as needed without slowing anyone else down.

How long are painting classes?

Painting classes usually last 1 to 3 hoursΒΈ depending on the age group, experience level, and location. Kids' classes are shorter than adult or college-level classes and are sometimes only available during certain hours of the day.

What kind of painting class is best for beginners?

Acrylic paint is best for beginners because it is easy to work with, easy to clean up, and dries quickly. Watercolor paint is also convenient and easy to clean up, but it is harder to work with and correct mistakes. Oil paints are best for beginner or intermediate painters with some experience.

Where can I take painting classes?

You can take painting classes from local rec centers, colleges, private instructors, and paint-and-sip shops. Paint-and-sip businesses provide materials and instructions for students to complete while socializing and drinking or eating.

What do I bring to painting classes?

Some classes provide all of the paint and supplies. Others do not, and you will have to buy your own. This may include any of the following:

  • Paints
  • Brushes
  • Easel
  • Canvas
  • Apron

  • Make sure you have the right supplies if applicable.
  • Avoid making large payments up front.

What questions should I ask painting instructors?

When looking for local painting classes, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been painting?
  • Do you allow walk-ins?
  • What type of paint would you recommend for my experience level?
  • What's your cancellation policy?
  • Do you have an age requirement?
  • How long are your classes?
  • Can I take my work home after class, or does it need to stay here to dry?
  • Will you give me an estimate and contract in writing?

You're beginning to open my mind regarding portraiture. It's never really appealed to me to try it. I just might be starting to see the light. A crack in a doorway, the shadow is born. A piercing thready creek, heavy laden with scorn.

Jess assisted me in teaching a Pronto Plate Lithography demo and was really great, helping students when needed, but also letting them find their own way through the project.

JJ is intuitive, kind, and curious. And a lot of fun. I liked working with him because I felt safe to be myself, to be weird, to be vulnerable.

Olivia was dedicated to teaching our teen fundamentals of drawing - kind, engaged, talented and supportive! Our daughter is a self-taught artist and wanted the "basics" and portrait drawing as a foundation - Olivia met her where she was at, gave great feedback and created a welcoming warm space to learn.
