Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

💻 How does online tuition work?

Despite being via video call, online tuition has the same objective as face-to-face classes, where you have the tutor by your side. Depending on their experience with painting, your tutor might ask you to show them some drawings or canvases that you’ve done, in order to get to know your level and style. The tutor will be able to explain the most common techniques and materials used, such as watercolour or oil painting.

Discover online tuition here.

🖼️ How do I decide which painting classes to take?

Most often, students will choose a painting tutor who follows the same style that they want to learn to paint or draw. To do this, check out the profiles of our painting tutors and have a look at their portfolios as well as the reviews of former students. Then contact the tutors of your choice to find out their price, location and time availability.

🖌️ How do I find a tutor for children?

On FindTutors, you will find hundreds of tutors for children's painting. Just use the filter to define the level or age of the students, and you will also see the opinions of other parents and students. We recommend that you ask for the tutor’s availability to have a trial class, so you can meet the person who is going to teach your child to paint.

Find a tutor for children's painting.

🔖 How much does a private painting lesson cost?

A private painting lesson can cost up to 50 pounds, depending on the type of material and techniques used. Many experienced painters may charge more for private tuition, but they help students who have been painting for a longer period of time and have specific questions to improve their work. On our website, the average price for private tuition is 20 pounds.

🎨 What materials do I need for the painting class?

It depends on the type of painting you want to learn. The most popular painting classes are for learning oil painting, watercolour drawing or acrylic painting. For children's painting classes, the recommended basic kit is usually gouache paint, school brushes, graphite and coloured pencils, crayons and a pad of good quality paper.

What you can learn in a painting class

Before studying art, many people take painting classes to improve their artistic skills. This includes mothers and fathers looking for an art tutor for their child, or even teenagers when they notice that their notebooks are full of drawings.

And, of course, also among adults and older people who pursue painting as a hobby and use it as a technique to relax and socialise. Painting exercises both professional and personal development. Although painting classes may be considered generic, there are many courses for different techniques:

  • Painting class for beginners. Designed to teach the fundamentals of painting and drawing, such as lines, shadows and perspective. In addition to learning how to paint in oils, techniques such as painting with pencil, crayon and fine tip pen are also taught. The basic painting class could be a prerequisite for starting a Fine Art course, for example, and so we start with the previous knowledge learned from your painting tutor.
  • Oil painting class for beginners. To learn oil painting from scratch, it is ideal to have a private tutor. The classes include technique and practice, the study of materials and the behaviour of light in paint and shadow. You will also learn painting techniques, how to mix colours and how to start creating oil paintings.
  • Intermediate level oil painting class. Those who already have a certain mastery of the material and technique can take an intermediate oil painting class. They are based on advancing your knowledge of glass painting and learning wet-on-wet painting. Your private painting tutor will most likely ask you to follow the same style to create a portfolio at the end of the course.
  • Colour theory class. Regardless of the material you choose to paint with - acrylic and oil paints, watercolours, pastels, coloured pencils, etc. - the first step in learning to paint is to understand colour theory. Concepts such as colour psychology, light and colour pigment and learning colour scales will be taught by your painting tutor. Your perception of art will change after understanding colour theory.
  • Landscape painting class. If you like to paint outdoors and capture everyday situations or places on paper, a landscape painting tutor will be a great option for you. Usually this class takes place in a location where you can paint the landscape you see, or even draw it from a photograph, for example. The most common paintings are streets and buildings, mountains, rivers and beaches.
  • Body drawing class. Ideal for those who want to paint realistically or are perfectionists in their attention to detail. In this painting class you will learn how to represent bodies accurately, usually with live models and even with nude models. Your drawing tutor will tell you, but the most commonly used technique for painting bodies is oil painting.

Explore online painting tuition

Online tuition can be done by video call, all you need is a computer or phone with a camera and microphone. So that your painting tutor can see you while you paint, position yourself so that the movement of your brush on the canvas or paper is also visible.

In addition, learning to paint online also allows you to use resources such as educational videos and lets you search for inspiration on the Internet. Nowadays, many painters display their portfolios to help you follow a style, or even get in touch for private tuition in painting.

As in the face-to-face classes, you will learn how to paint portraits of people, landscapes, abstract painting with different materials. The wide variety of styles includes the use of watercolour, gouache painting, acrylic painting lesson, oil painting and more. Learn the benefits of learning to paint online:

  1. Take painting lessons from wherever you are. That's right, there's no need to go from one place to another with your painting materials, you can take online classes from your studio or the comfort of your own home.
  2. Find painting tutors from all over the country. Ideal for those who live in small towns or are looking for specific professionals. The advantage is that you can do your private painting lessons online with tutors from all over UK, which increases your chances of finding a tutor you really identify with.
  3. Be specific about the technique you want to learn. On the Internet, you can search for tutors who give painting lessons in the technique you want to improve and also in the style that most closely resembles your own.
  4. Find a timetable that suits your routine. It will be even easier to find a tutor with the same time availability as yours. Your online tuition can take place at times that would not be possible in person, for example late at night or early in the morning.

Get the best prices for painting lessons. This is because your tutor then saves you the time and money on transport, and the lessons are usually more affordable. Remember that it all depends on the level of painting you want to achieve and the tutor you choose.
