Our Hamilton Place location boasts two state-of-the-art classrooms, where beginners and advanced students alike will benefit from the breadth of talent and experience each instructor brings to our curriculum. Our classes run the gamut from introductory courses in drawing and painting to advanced instruction for the artist seeking to improve skills and techniques, as well as a variety of courses highlighting the latest trends in crafts and fun, educational classes for children and teens. For those who can’t commit to a long-term class, we offer frequent one-, two- and three-day workshops and demonstrations. If you have any questions, please email or call our Hamilton Place location at (423) 531-7606.
Private Lessons
Let our staff know about the project, style or medium you are interested in learning. We will pair you with one of our highly-qualified teachers and set up the hours of your classes to accommodate your schedule. If you have a specific teacher in mind, we will try to accommodate your request for that instructor. Private instruction charges are $50/hour, with a minimum of two hours reserved. These lessons can be scheduled on a one-time or a continuing basis. You must furnish all necessary materials and supplies. Payment must be made in advance of the class.
Individual an Group Critique
Do you need another set of eyes to help you analyze your paintings, improve your compositions and color choices, or prepare for a competition? We will be happy to pair you with someone from our excellent teaching staff to help you see your work anew. You may request a specific teacher and we will try to accommodate your request. Or tell us about your medium and style and we will assign the teacher we think is best qualified to help you. If you wish, you may split your hour of critique with one other person. Critiques are $50/hour, with a one-hour minimum. Payment must be made in advance of the critique. Visit Art Creations Hamilton Place to sign up. Questions?
