Discover the Best Art Classes in NYC

Art is a vast subject that includes graphic and charcoal drawing, oil and acrylic painting, watercolor painting, candle making, flower arrangement, metal welding, and more. Art represents a unique way to express your thoughts and emotions. Some use art as a hobby, while others find unique full-time career options related to their passions. Whether you want to learn art as a hobby or turn it into a career, taking an art class is one of the best ways to learn art. 

Why You Should Learn Art in NYC

NYC is a city of wonder. You can find endless opportunities for entertainment. However, the hustle and bustle of the city can begin to wear on your nerves if you don’t find a proper way to relax. Art is a good way to relieve stress while learning a productive hobby in your free time. 

Art classes in NYC will also connect you to a larger community. You’ll be able to meet with others who have similar interests and join local art clubs and groups. In addition, some art skills are marketable. For example, taking a comic drawing class could help you find a job as a comic artist. Or, after taking a soap-making class, you could open up a part-time store to sell your creations.

In-Person Art Classes & Schools in NYC

In-person art classes offer a unique chance to connect with others who share your interests. In addition, you’ll gain access to personalized training and feedback from a professional instructor in your area. CourseHorse offers dozens of art classes in NYC, which guarantees you’ll find a class that sparks your interest. 

For example, Brooklyn Craft Company offers a Beginner Embroidery Workshop for just $45 on May 11th. The class teaches students the basics of embroidery and will specifically teach how to complete a handmade peace sign. During the three-hour class, you’ll learn skills that will help you master the first steps of embroidery. 

CourseHorse offers a class through Michelle Greene Sculpture called Mig Welding on April 22nd. You will learn to set the machine, tack, run a bead, and create a small sculpture to take home. You will also learn to set up a welding shop to create furniture and art. A unique part of this class is that it’s limited to only two students, ensuring that you get personalized feedback and guidance. 

You can also take Stained Glass Lessons through Valeria Divinorum. The class has an average size of just four students and lasts two hours. Students will design their own stained glass artwork, gain an understanding of stained glass materials, use glass grinders, and create a stained glass art piece from start to finish. The class is held on April 19th and costs $175. 

Another unique class is the Dyeing with Nature course through Better Than Jam's Store & Studio. The class teaches students how to use natural materials from a garden to prep and dye fabrics with lasting colors. Students can dye three items and learn how to dye fabrics at home. You can book a class on June 4th for $95. 

There are countless classes available to those living in the NYC area. Some other options include a Pillow Workshop, an Accelerated Portraiture Drawing course, and an Intro to Jewelry Casting class. For more class options, visit CourseHorse’s NYC art class page

Virtual Art Classes & Schools

Although in-person classes offer the best benefits, there is also an option to take virtual art classes. Online art classes are best for those who can’t or don’t want to travel to class. You can take the course from the comfort of your own home. 

Although many virtual art classes may require you to purchase your own materials, that’s not always the case. For example, the Preserved Flower Arranging course through Petal+Eon provides the flowers and vase delivery costs in the price of the class. This course takes place on April 19th and costs $77. 

Another option is the six-session Acrylic Painting for Absolute Beginners course. Students will learn acrylic painting techniques for beginners with personalized instruction from a painting expert. The class costs $310 and starts on April 20th. 

CourseHorse also offers Crochet for Beginners, which includes six sessions to teach beginners how to crochet. The class costs $275, and you’ll need to purchase your supplies beforehand. To find the supply list, simply read through the class description, and you’ll find a full list of materials you’ll need to get the best experience from the class. The class starts on April 19th.

Private Group Art Classes in NYC

Art classes are a great team-bonding event for businesses and organizations. Art can bring teams together and help teammates bond and get to know each other in creative ways. CourseHorse offers art classes for private groups in NYC that are perfect for team building. 

A popular art class for virtual teams is the Virtual Terrarium Workshop. The class includes all the materials you’ll need, including moss, succulents, a glass terrarium, rocks, soil, and crystals. All materials will be shipped to the participants before the class’s date. You can book this class through CourseHorse for just $75 per person. 

Another great team-building class is the Virtual Clay Hand Building course. Each participant will receive the materials in the mail before the day of the class. The materials include clay, six shaping tools, and a sponge. This activity is perfect for groups that want a good hands-on class where they can pour individual creativity into each clay creation. You can book this class on CourseHorse for $75 per person.
