I began drawing at the age of 5 and, until 1968, I spent many Saturday mornings taking art lessons at the Dayton Art Institute. After earning a BA in Fine Arts, 1977, I opened up fine art and illustration services. After several years of landscape painting, humor, portrait and caricature art, I added Architectural Illustration to my studio services. Over the years, my desire to "paint large" evolved into the commercial/residential mural arena. As my children grew, I was drafted into their elementary schools to teach about selected masters of art. I found teaching to be rewarding and uplifting.

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 type of paint would you recommend for my experience level?
  • What's your cancellation policy?

Gary was patient and knowledgeable. Twice I thought my painting was beyond repair, but Gary, with his calm demeanor, showed me that all was okay and how to take what I thought was a huge mistake and with a few brush strokes turn it into a thing of beauty. Gary truly showed me how much joy painting can bring to your life.
