What do painting lessons include?

Painting lessons include all the tasks necessary to hone your painting skills, whether as a hobbyist, teacher or professional artist. The service can include instruction in various media and painting forms, ranging from simple beginner watercolour painting lessons, abstract painting lessons for beginners, or to more advanced courses like wet-on-wet oil painting lessons or impressionist painting lessons.  

The lessons include setting learning objectives which entails picking a medium, choosing a style and preparing the appropriate materials. Your painting lessons tutor can show you the different materials, techniques and methods used in painting beautiful and unique works of art. They can teach you the fundamentals of your chosen media and art form, including using and mixing the right colour palette, composing subjects and other important topics. 

Establishing learning objectives

The first step in your painting lesson is to set your learning objectives. Once you’ve booked the painting tutor for the sort of painting you want to learn, they can make a personalised lesson plan for your course. They can tailor your lessons to fit your skill level and customise it to achieve your desired level. 

Choosing your materials

Your painting tutor can recommend the best painting materials like paints, brushes, paper or canvas. They can suggest which materials to use that fit your budget, and in some cases, your level of skill. If you don’t have the materials, some tutors can buy these for you for a fee and send them via courier if necessary.  

Learning painting concepts

Your tutor can introduce you to concepts relevant to your painting lesson. They can teach you about lighting, shading, and mixing paints and different colour palettes to achieve your desired piece. Lessons on image composition are included to help you create a balanced, aesthetically-pleasing work of art. Some tutors may teach you art history and introduce you to the great masters of your chosen painting style, subject or media to inspire you.  

Painting instruction

Your tutor can help you pick a subject to paint, then guide you in making the rough sketch if appropriate. After the sketch, they can then instruct you on painting the image and giving it the right lighting, form and depth. Depending on the type of painting lessons, some tutors may provide models, such as body painting lessons or acrylic painting lessons with flowers as the subject. 

Testing and evaluation

Your painting tutor can require that you create a painting based on all your lessons in real-time. If the painting style is too complex, they may ask you to make the painting then present it at a future session. 

While art is subjective, your painting tutor can assess your creation based on established standards of excellence and best practices. They can evaluate your painting then suggest which techniques or methods need improvement. Your tutor can repeat the appropriate lessons until you improve your skills.
