My passion is Fine Arts & Design. I love working with kids and sharing my talents and educating them about creating Art. I earned my Bachelors degree in Fine Arts. I have over 10 years experience as an Interior Designer. I love painting and doing crafty things as a hobby. I like to make the process fun! Art is about expression and it has been a wonderful source of a creativity outlet for myself. The sky is the limit on what you can create. It’s not just about technique it’s about finding your way of expressing emotions and the world around you. :) https://www.linkedin.com/in/designbyjules757 Visit my linked in and check out my painting portfo

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's your cancellation policy?

He is always encouraging and helps you build confidence in yourself. He explains things in a way easy to understand. I am enjoying learning to draw, even though I told myself for years that I couldn't. I love the pace of the class. He is very patient, never rushing you, and I feel comfortable asking questions, and he always explains it in a way I can understand. I am really enjoying my lessons.
