RAVENSWOOD — The Lillstreet Art Center offers hundreds of group classes a year — and that's still not enough.
Some people are looking for more individualized instruction, others can't commit to a weeks-long course held at a specific time each week.
Rather than turn these potential students away, Lillstreet is introducing private lessons, which can be arranged with any of the center's teaching artists.
"They can be a one-time lesson or extend over any number of days or weeks the student wants," Lillstreet spokeswoman Sarah West Ervin said.
There are few parameters, aside from requiring a two-hour commitment from students. Students choose their pace, materials and whether they want to learn solo or with a friend or two. (Maximum is three people per lesson.)
Cost is $75 per hour for one student, $60 per hour per person for two students and $50 per hour per person for three students.
Lillstreet will attempt to accommodate spur-of-the-moment whims, but West Ervin recommends contacting the art center two weeks prior to the lesson's ideal start date.
