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 questions should I ask painting instructors?

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?

Allen is a wonderful artist, who isn't afraid of experimentation or the unknown. His personal interest is landscape impressionism, so he excels at evoking emotion through color and texture. He has a solid grasp of color theory (which I desperately lack) and is able coach students, while giving them enough leeway to define their own unique style.

Wonderful experience! Claire makes learning any technique fun and easy with her step by step instruction and ability to bring out your creative abilities. Her experience as a professional artist helps to improve any skill level. Never painted before? Dabbling in art? Already an artist? Doesn’t matter, there’s always something to learn and a great environment to learn in.

I have taken a few "paint-together" adult classes with Brush and Paisely under the guidance of Raksha Soni. I found it to be a very creative, relaxing and therapeutic experience. Raksha is a very talented, patient and thoughtful artist and teacher. She allowed each of the participants in the class to express their creativity and individuality while teaching them the techniques and painting tricks. Each of the participants left the session with a "masterpiece" and feeling very rewarded and with a feeling of time extremely well spent. I highly encourage others to participate in Brush and Paisely classes to express your inner artist and to let your creativity blossom under the tutelage of an excellent teacher!
