Travis C. says, "Sam made art making about having fun! I was raised to feel like I had to make art that had to look a certain way. Sam taught me that art is about expressing myself and sometimes it takes some exploring during the art making process to find the expression, that it’s okay to not know exactly what something will look like at the end. Interesting enough he also provided me with tools for better planning ideas as well" Read more

Hello, what is Drawing? Drawing helps develop the brain, hands, eyes, and soul. Drawing is an art that makes life brighter and more interesting. But how to teach a child to draw? No worries, I'm here - Alexandra, a professional educator and artist. I graduated from art school and the academy of design and arts, so I know a thing or two about drawing.

She had a broad variety of artistic tools to show me including creating/selecting colors, different brush strokes, and different approaches to portrayals (impressionistic, realistic and abstract). Jieun Beth is talented, fun to work with, and flexible in tailoring her approach to students' needs. I highly recommend Jieun Beth!" Read more

I studied studio art and design at Texas State but have been doing art for most of my life. I prefer landscapes and abstract art. I work primarily in acrylics but do enjoy oil and cold wax. I have had several shows here in Austin and am currently exhibiting at The Hive Gallery at Beecaves. I like to tailor painting lessons to the student- their influences, their background as it relates to art, what moves them in a painting, what colors draw them in, and such. I find this information to be very valuable to student and teacher!

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?
  • Do you have an age requirement?
