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

Shelley H.
Suzanne Way took me in, showed me how to grow as a Fine Artist. I never was a painter until she shared her skills and knowledge with me. She is caring from start to finish! Suzanne has the way to bring out the best In an artist and she has many avenues to help you Learn to show your art and do multiple things with your art beside just the original. Suzanne has changed my life and it was a blessing to me to have found her because she found the talent inside of me. Need I say anymore...I’m not the best student of hers but she gave me confidence to feel like I was. The Other students in class were an inspiration to see what they were painting. The sharing of ideas was always a joy! The friendships made are timeless and whenever you run into one of them, it feels like it was just yesterday. If you are looking for real art skills, then Suzanne is the one to teach you! She is the best teacher I have ever had!!!
