Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are art lessons worth it?

A: Art lessons are worth it to some people and not to others. It’s recommended to try drawing or painting on your own before you pursue lessons. If you find you enjoy doing it at home and want to develop your skills, art lessons are a valuable investment.

Q: Is painting an expensive hobby?

A: Painting may feel like an expensive hobby in the beginning when you need to buy all the start-up materials and equipment. However, once you have the start-up costs down, the hobby is relatively inexpensive to maintain. Additionally, if you become skilled enough, you can sell your paintings and recoup some of your costs.

Q: What should I paint as a beginner?

A: Most beginners can benefit from painting objects or concepts that aren’t too complex and detailed. Some of the most popular painting concepts for beginners are:

  • Flowers
  • Silhouettes
  • Still life
  • 3D shapes
  • Clever lines
  • Abstract
However, note that artists enjoy themselves when they get to dictate what they want to paint. Remember, you’re painting for yourself, so paint what you want!
