What is a course in painting? There are a wide variety of painting classes. Some course options involve the use of oil, acrylic or watercolors. The subject matter can differ from class to class, and choices may include landscape, portrait and still life. Many accredited institutions offer painting classes throughout the year and at times convenient for any schedule. Some students opt to take painting courses in foreign countries if they want to experience the class in a different culture and context.

Enrolling in a course in painting can be a great way to refine skills or experience a brand new medium. Painting classes may also help improve hand-eye coordination and sense of perspective, which can be beneficial for all types of art classes.

The cost of a course in painting can fluctuate by school and by country. The length of the class often impacts the price. Some typical options are year-long, semester or summer courses. An added component in the price is often materials. It is a good idea to confirm in advance whether there is an extra charge for paint, brushes and canvases.

A course in a painting can be listed as an additional qualification when applying for jobs. It may also be necessary for the completion of a degree. For many people, painting is a hobby and they take classes for fun.
