I have many years of teaching experience at many levels from primary to graduate school and in a variety of subjects. Inaddition to being an artist and art teacher I am also a psychologist which means I understand people and am pretty good at getting to what needs to change, in art and in life. No, I won't be doing therapy I promise, but I do understand that art is a very personal thing, for me it is also spiritual but I don't force that on anyone. I was taught by amazing people who brought out the best in me which is what I do for my students. My art is a visual narrative of my life, my experiences and my spirituality. Much of my pieces are

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

  • 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?

Reviews for Edina painting classes

Recent success stories from people in the Edina area.
Trevor H.
It will be meaningful if you want to be an artist at any level-You go at your own pace. Critiques are genuine. You are encouraged to try different mediums, use new techniques. Discuss things like negative space, proportions and framing a subject, tricks with tools, or talk about stories from Kingman's years of experience in the relaxed atmosphere of his studio space. Above all, you will enjoy yourself, as you watch yourself progress!
