Zoe C. says, "I’ve had several lessons with this tutor and each experience was exquisite! I originallly sought out tutoring to enhance my sketching abilities and within my first lesson, I had new techniques to work with and helpful feedback from Ray. I was very impressed with his patience, direction and vision. My second lesson, Ray helped me navigate through photoshop with a digital drawing tablet and I can say it has helped me tremendously as an aspiring illustrator. I’m looking forward to another lesson where Ray can demonstrate a proper way for me to use my newly bought DSLR camera that I know very little about. It is highly likely that I will come back to Ray for any future tutoring for any new found interest in the arts seeing as he has a colorful background in all things fine arts and is very patient with a supportive, positive attitude!

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 hours¸ 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

  • Do you allow walk-ins?
  • What type of paint would you recommend for my experience level?
  • What's your cancellation policy?
