In the Seattle area, private lessons in art range up to $40/hour. I
generally charge $25 per person per hour for private art lessons, but do
not charge this rate quoted unless there are five or more students.

Some teachers also cut deals for families with two children participating, such as ten dollars a class for one child or 17.50 for two. You might check with the boys and girls clubs in your area or the Y for common rates in art classes, but remember, since you are an art professional, they will be getting top-notch art instruction from you and quality ain't cheap.
