I believe that teaching art is more that just to help someone to learn a technique; is to discover all the wonders we can do with a brush, colors, and a canvas. We all have the capacity to be creative even if we are talented or not.Painting is one of the greatest activities to build up our inner beings and to liberate ourselves from preconceived mindsets that keep us from understanding who we are and how amazing we can be. The main reason why I’m so passionate about my job is because every student is a universe waiting to be discovered, and sharing with them this magical experience that had transformed my life fills my heart of joy. It’s defi...

I have been an art teacher for over 15 years. I started to perfect my skill in art when I was 12 years old. I have painted hundreds of canvases and murals in my lifetime. My specialization is in oil on canvas, however, I stand out as a teacher because I am a professional in several other kinds of arts as well, such as pencil drawing, charcoal, acrylic paint, and water color. I love to teach people of all ages and abilities. I love to see people's progression as I teach them, and their happiness during and when their work is finished. I love the teacher student bond that is created through patience, dedication, laughter, and the therapy of a...

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?

Renee really pushed me as an artist to explore myself, and different mediums I would have never experienced without her guidance. Not only does she provides the conversation and knowledge to expand your skills but the freedom to explore different mediums, and to make the crucial mistakes to discover what you really want to express. Without Renee I would have never discovered my passion for performance work without providing a context of the contemporary performance world, or my love for large oil paintings if she hadn’t bought a large canvas and invited me to just try. And it’s this broad range that makes her so valuable as a mentor. Renee helps her students transform just visual work into real art, which has meaning and emotion.
