Barbara says, "I’ve been taking weekly lessons from Melissa for over a year. What began as a stand-alone four-week course has developed into a love of watercolor painting and a burgeoning of skills I didn’t know I had. Melissa’s depth as an artist - as well as her ability to take a student from where she is to the next most important place she needs to go - make her the perfect teacher to grow with over time. I can’t say enough about her." Read more

I am an incredible sketch artist and painter that works well with people. I have been sketching thing that I seen since the age of 8. I developed the interest in colors so I began to teach myself how to paint. With more and more practice I’ve advanced my sketching and painting skills. I taught over 200 paint classes throughout the past 8 Years and sold a few of my paintings I created. I realize that painting and many other art skills take patience. I am learning patience still even tho I am patient. I began teaching classes in 2016 with my first paint class were people I knew so it made it easier. After that I became a social butterfly

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?
  • Do you have an age requirement?
