Discover the Best Painting Classes Online

Have you ever wanted to learn painting, but you did not know where to begin? Any person of any age or ability level can learn to paint. The term “painting” is used to describe the action that creates the end product–both are referred to as “painting”. It dates back to prehistoric times, when nomadic people created paintings on rocky walls using charcoal. The oldest paintings discovered to date were recently unearthed in Spain, and are thought to be over 42,000 years old. Today, we define painting as a method of artistic expression in which paint, pigment, color, or another medium is applied to a solid surface. A brush is most commonly used to apply paint, but other tools, such as knives, spatulas, sponges, and airbrushes can be used alone or in combination with brushes.

Why You Should Learn Painting Online

Painting is an excellent hobby if you are looking for a way to relieve stress or want something to do during your free time. You may enjoy the part of painting that allows you to create something for another person as well. A special gift in the form of a painting that a loved one can hang in their home, for example, is the perfect way to show you care. It could be a painting of another loved one, or simply something that is meaningful to the person who will receive it.

You may not realize it now, but there is a large community of people who enjoy painting both casually and professionally. Once you have a basic understanding of how to paint, you may want to research local clubs, groups, events, or organizations where you can meet other people who like painting. Groups like this can be in-person as well as online and offer you the opportunity to create a new social circle.

Looking for your new side hustle? Painting is a marketable skill that you can turn into a part-time job, or even a new job entirely. Selling your paintings through an online marketplace, or in-person at a craft fair near where you live, are both options for spreading your creative joy around. You could even begin taking commissions, where you create custom paintings based upon the requests of your customers. 

Virtual Painting Classes 

The idea of taking an online painting class might be intimidating, but much like in-person painting classes, they have their pros and cons. One good thing about taking a virtual painting class is that you can attend the class from anywhere. This means you can work on your painting project at home, in your backyard, or even in a public space like a park. There is also no commute, so you save some time and money. The biggest con about taking an online painting class is that you generally have to supply your own materials and equipment.

Interested in online painting classes? CourseHorse has many options to choose from, so it should be easy to find something that will work for you. For example, Beginner’s Intro to Watercolor Painting: Single Session is a class that explores the colorful world of watercolor painting. You will experience learning and fun in this relaxed group atmosphere while you discover your unique form of self-expression. 

Beginner Watercolor Online is a six-session course focused on botanicals, and you will learn to paint with luminous, sparkling watercolors. Enjoy acquiring new techniques and learning through fun activities that transition into studies and landscapes. 

Online Painting With Acrylics 301 is a virtual class for all levels in which you will learn the techniques of 20th-century painting masters. These include mixing colors and preparing your canvas for your work.

Painting the Natural World is another watercolors class that is perfect for all skill levels. In this class, you will learn to make expressive marks, mix colors, and apply water mindfully. It is recommended that you have at least basic knowledge of painting and watercolors to take this class.

Online Oil Pastel 101 is a virtual class that teaches you about the creamy, easy-to-mix medium that is oil pastels. You will learn the basics of color theory and create unique projects using smooth blends and subtle applications of color.

Color Mixing is a six-session class in which you will discover how to mix colors that accurately represent the world around you. You will make charts for permanent reference and then apply this knowledge as you paint flowers and leaves from live specimens.

CourseHorse offers painting classes for private groups online that they can deliver to you in a live online format. Virtual Watercolor Workshop (Materials Included) will take up to 225 participants and all materials are included in the cost of the class.

Virtual Acrylic Painting (Materials Included) is designed for up to 500 participants per course and all materials are included. This class instructs your group on how to create a painting on canvas. While you will all be working on the same painting, the end products will be unique to each artist. And Virtual Watercolor Georgia O’Keeffe (Materials Included) takes up to 225 people at one time and includes all the materials you need to learn. This class will teach your group about legendary watercolor artist Georgia O’Keeffe, and in the process of painting you will learn her techniques.

If you do not see a group class that interests you listed publicly on their website, CourseHorse can provide a different class for your group. Reach out through the contact form on their website to learn about all available options. When you book with CourseHorse, it is important to remember that you get a multitude of benefits, including the ability to change your group size after booking if necessary. You will also receive a confirmation within 24 hours of your booking, and there are no extra booking fees. Finally, CourseHorse private group classes are supported on multiple platforms, so everyone can join in on the fun no matter where they are.

Online vs. In-Person Painting Classes

Learning painting online is a great way to get started with painting, especially if there are not any in-person painting classes in your area. You should gain the same knowledge of painting in an online class as you would at an in-person class, and if you take a live online class, you will still get the real-time feedback from your instructor that you would at an in-person class. This type of feedback is critical to learning painting in an easy and relaxing way. Just remember that if you choose to take an online painting class, you will most likely need to purchase your own materials, but your instructor should give you a list of what to buy.

Can I Learn Painting for Free Online?

While formal training from an expert will help most people learn painting more efficiently, the short answer is yes, you can get started on your painting journey with online tutorials and videos, such as those found on YouTube. At the end of the day, though, if you want real-time feedback and a creative atmosphere in which to learn, you should enroll in a formal class.
