Robyn H. says, "When I began taking classes with Janet, I had not been doing any art for several years, so was anxious. Janet is warm, nurturing and encouraging and immediately put me at ease. She has a wonderful, relaxed approach to art. She often brings in books on artists to show examples of their work to help explain different theories, techniques and approaches in abstract art. In a short amount of time, she has gotten me completely absorbed in art, and I am confident I will keep learning and growing by working with her. " Read more

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...

Painting is a creative expression, and the forms are numerous. Water color, and acrylic painting among other aesthetic modes, may serve to manifest the expressive and conceptual. Paintings can be naturalistic and representational. I enjoy the challenge of realism. Sketching out my paintings first in pencil or marker gives me a road map to the way to complete my paintings. I enjoy creating paintings that I've identified with. Places, people and things I love, I love to paint....

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

  • What type of paint would you recommend for my experience level?
  • What's your cancellation policy?

Reviews for Naperville painting classes

Recent success stories from people in the Naperville area.
Carol B.
After working with Janet for over 6 months, I feel she is the perfect combination of artist and educator. Her understanding of technical skills, and the application of paint, brushes and canvas is obvious. Her knowledge of the history of art and her weekly discussions about individual master artists adds a richness to the material and exercises she suggests. But what I value most is her ability to understand that each student is a unique individual with their own directions, talents and potentials. She keeps an openess that brings out the best in us all.
