Thomas O. says, "I am a very novice artist. I was interested in drawing. Juliet and I have been working through Zoom for several months. Juliet was terrific in taking me from what I wanted to draw. We have worked on drawing one perspective and two perspective drawings, drawing things from nature, and the human body from multiple perspectives. I feel that I learn something every lesson and have grown as an artist." Read more

Your Art Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do art classes cost near me?

Art classes cost $20 to $50 for a one-time session or $100 to $500 for a class including 6 to 10 weekly sessions. Prices for art classes depend on your location, the type of art, the school or museum offering the class, and whether the fee includes materials and art supplies. Most art instructors provide a list of the required supplies which you must purchase separately.

Can you take art classes online?

You can take art classes online through CreativeLive, Udemy, ed2go, and art specialty websites like New Masters Academy (NMA) or The Art Studio NY. Many museums, universities, studios, and individual artists also offer online art classes.

Prices for online art classes are similar to in-studio classes and primarily depend on the instructor's artistic reputation and whether the course features prerecorded videos or is held live.

What types of art classes are available?

Popular art classes offered in most locations include:

  • Drawing and sketching
  • Painting with watercolor, oil, acrylics, or pastels
  • Printmaking
  • Fabric painting
  • Ceramics
  • Sculpture
  • Jewelry making
  • Glasswork
  • Fiber arts

How do I find the best art classes near me?

Before you take the next step in your creative journey, follow these tips to ensure you find an art class that's a good fit for you:

  • First, determine what type of art you'd like to learn.
  • Decide if you want to take a one-time workshop or a multi-week course.
  • Read instructor reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Browse their portfolio of artwork created by their past students.
  • Ask about fees, class sizes, and supplies needed.
  • Visit the studio or classroom in person to check it out before signing up for a class.
  • Wear clothes that can get dirty. Some classes have aprons, but you may still get paint or other art products on your clothes.

What questions should I ask before signing up for art classes?

Before you sign up for an art class, be sure to ask the instructor these questions:

  • Which class should I take as a first-time art student?
  • Does the fee include materials and supplies? If not, do you provide a supply list?
  • What subjects do the art lessons cover?
  • Where will the class meet?
  • Are the classes restricted to certain age groups?
  • How many students will be in the class?
  • Do you offer online art classes? Are the online classes taught live or prerecorded?
  • Can I buy a class as a gift for someone?

Christine N.
I have been a student there for 3+ years now and highly recommend it. Art & Science are synergistic and enjoyable together for me. Alexandra Rozenman is an accomplished professional artist and also the best teacher I ever had-- patient, kind and open to new ideas. The school is very well organized and a vibrant community. Reasonable price, materials included. It was and still is a great finding.
Serena E.
Juliet is an incredible teacher! She is so down to earth, really knows how to focus on what needs to be improved on, and just overall was able to provide the guidance that I needed. I really appreciated all of her lessons and critiques, I feel like I grew as an artist with her. She's a very talented artist, and I feel like just being around someone who has been a professional artist for so long is such an awesome experience, because artists just see the world so much differently than anyone else! Plus she has a command over many different mediums. Had I been able to do art as a career, I would have continued working with Juliet. She's overall an amazing person, a fabulous artist, and a wonderful teacher. Her kind soul and ability to give me the exact teaching that I needed at the time were always appreciated. I'm happy I was able to be one of her students, even if it was somewhat brief! Thank you, Juliet! I truly am grateful for the time we spent together. Her teaching style can meet anyone's needs and you can grow as an artist with her too!
