Susan C. says, "Sanjukta is a wonderful teacher. She has a great deal of knowledge and natural talent that she shares with me at every lesson. She started from what I knew upon starting and brought me to where I now am. I have learned a tremendous amount about Gouache watercolor painting, to blend colors, shade, etc.. I also worked with alcohol pens and colored pencils to draw a macaw and am now learning to paint a landscape with gouache watercolors which have been great for a beginning painter. I look forward to every lesson and highly recommend Sanjukta to painting students of all levels." Read more

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

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

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?

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.
