I have been teach drawing, painting and sculpture for over 20 years worldwide. I teach out of my studio in Asheville, NC or in workshops all over the world. My method of teaching is derived from my training at the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York City. This atelier method is linked to the history and methods of classical realism in the 19th century. If your interested in learning to accurately draw, paint or sculpt from life I recommend taking a look at my website and reaching out to me. www.AngelaCunninghamFineArt.com Learning structure and skill set is the foundation to all art.

Meryl L. says, "Sandra is very approachable and a great teacher. She critiqued my work and offered suggestions in a supportive and patient way. She has the ability to look at a painting and instinctively knows how to make improvements while allowing you to retain your own voice, which helps you to find your own voice. I feel my work and confidence has vastly improved with her help. Highly recommend." Read more

Hello! Welcome to my painting classes! My teaching experience goes way back right after college. That’s over 10 years of sharing my knowledge as a painter and artist. My focus in a class is to emphasize the importance of solid fundamental principles in creating a good painting while encouraging my students to develop and express their own voice. I am dedicated to be your best coach to achieve your goals as a painter and artist. I love painting myself and I would like you to have fun as you learn the process. We offer acrylic, oil and mixed media painting as well as basic drawing classes. My studio is at Asheville’s River Arts District locate

Teaching elementary art for 25 years. Costume design and construction. Expert at helping beginners find their artistic style and preferences. Certified in SC to teach Visual Arts and Theatre. I understand the insecurity people have about their artistic abilities. I'm good at getting them over that hump and on to enjoying their own particular style. I love seeing the ideas that emerge from a budding artist, no matter whether they are 4 or 84.

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

  • Do you allow walk-ins?
  • What type of paint would you recommend for my experience level?
  • What's your cancellation policy?

Reviews for Asheville painting classes

Recent success stories from people in the Asheville area.
Janet H.
Cleaster's work with teens is warm, respectful, engaging, and both encouraging and unapologetic. For example, she invites participants into better painting skills as a means to better serve their vision. Too often, teaching artists don't have a handle on how to give feedback for this age group. The teens in our program were challenged and excited to be working with an artist who is walking her walk and so thoughtful about sharing her own process and inspirations. I also found Cleaster to be incredibly organized and prompt about the logistics of setting up and finishing out the residency .

"Everything" isn't as much of an over-statement as you'd might expect. Linda is a very good artist. She enjoys teaching and telling stories. She helps you develop yourself as an artist. She watches and judges what you're and where you're trying to do and drops comments that nudge you in the right direction. I always enjoyed the classes, alway learned something and I'm gotten better. Have fun, enjoy yourself and this journey into art. Also enjoy the friendships that come with the journey.
