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 hoursยธ 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:

  • Brushes

  • What's your cancellation policy?

Reviews for Hammond painting classes

Recent success stories from people in the Hammond area.

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.

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 hadnโ€™t bought a large canvas and invited me to just try. And itโ€™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.
