About Tara
Hello New Student,

My name is Tara. I am a Drawing and Painting Arts and Arts and Crafts instructor located in Waldorf MD. I teach drawing and painting for ages (4 to Adults) in Charles County and Prince Georges County Maryland. I am also a Substitute Teacher for the Charles County Public Schools. My area of expertise is working with pastel portraits of people and animals both on dry and wet paper or canvas. I have taught Basic Drawing to children ages (5-8), and Portrait Drawing to children ages (9-17) at the Michael's Arts and Crafts located in Waldorf MD. One of my portrait artwork (Barack Obama) was displayed in our local newspaper the City Paper. I have also received recognition for my other portrait artwork at the Portrait Society of Atlanta GA.

I am excited about teaching drawing and painting to anyone who wants to learn h
ow to draw or paint, or to improve on their techniques. In my art course, I offer a variety of art lessons. Each week the student will learn a different technique which includes Art History, World Art from various countries, Graffiti Art, Floral and Fruit Still Life, Landscape Art, Seascape Art, Fabric Art (Designing T-Shirts or Athletic Shoes), Arranging a variety of compositions, Blending Techniques, Color Mixing, Color Theory, and Time Drills to improve art skills, and eye and hand coordination. The student will also learn how to use charcoal, pencil, pastels, oil pastels, watercolor pencils, colored pencils, markers, watercolor pans, and acrylic painting on specialized drawing paper, and canvas.

I received my Associates Arts Degree in Studio Art from Prince Georges Community College in 1985. I also received my Bachelor's of Art degree in Visual Performing Arts from the University of Maryland Baltimore MD in 1987.

Tara was wonderful when working with my boys. She was always on time, never cancelled and was always smiling. She was gentle and guided them through each project. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone who wanted a personal, quality lesson in art.

About Sharron J.

Close
Baltimore, MD

View Full Profile

In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love drawing. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Materials are not included.
Materials needed are pencil, paper and a willingness to explore.
Drawing lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time. Art is very therapeutic.

I've taught and currently consult with former and current Baltimore School for the Arts visual arts students. For more information, website at jfa-studios.com.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

All artists need to learn the basic fundamentals of drawing. I'll show you how to sketch ideas using reference imagery in pencil, focus on composition, form, light, shading, and more. As you progress we can introduce more mediums such as ink pens, alcohol markers, India ink, or colored pencils. I'm also happy to teach digital drawing, using various techniques to sketch and develop crisp linearts.

My drawing specialties are people, animals, and nature landscape scenery, so if any of these things interest you, let's get drawing!

About Emily
Greetings! Do you love to draw or paint either digitally or with traditional mediums? Do you or your kids love cartoons, anime/manga, or comics? How about figure drawing, or lovely nature landscapes? Drawing animals perhaps? How about portraits? Well, if you answered 'yes!' to any of these, then I'm the art teacher for you.

My name is Emily Cammisa, and I follow Bob Ross's philosophy that art is a pursued interest, and anyone who has that invested interest and willingness to practice the craft can get good at it. I've helped people of all ages go from saying "I can't even draw a stick figure!" to "I can't believe I did that!" as they proudly show me their work. I have a bachelor's degree in fine art from Skidmore College and 10 years experience with freelance illustration work and teaching. My goal is to share my love of art with you
and build your artistic skill level to wherever you want it to be. Whether it's just a hobby, or a potential career for you, I'm here to help.

What age groups do I teach, you ask? Well, I love teaching kids 5+ and adults alike how to draw and color like a professional artist. I also specialize in teaching people with autism. There's no better therapy than art; it truly is food for the soul. I also make my lessons very affordable and convenient by traveling to my student's homes with all the art supplies every week; rain, snow, or shine. I also teach at the College of Saint Rose every July, so I'm great with large groups in addition to doing private lessons.

Sound good? Great! Let's get drawing and painting. I look forward to bringing out the creativity in you (or your kids!)

Emily works with my son developing his drawing skills before he leaves for college to study digital animation. He really needed to work on illustration skills and Emily has been amazing! I can’t believe how quickly his skills are improving!! But more importantly to me is that my son enjoys the lessons. He is very comfortable working with Emily and his confidence has grown in the process! I can not speak highly enough about Emily as a teacher!! She has a very calm and supportive approach which is perfect for my son. My son does not drive so it is really convenient that she is willing to travel to my house for lessons!

My daughter first met Emily through a summer camp that she participated in. She came home excited and told me that we HAD TO take lessons from her! She has been taking drawing lessons from Emily for the past year and has grown so much in skill! Emily is a patient, kind and caring teacher. She really has a wonderful way of connecting with her students and is supportive of their art style. I would highly recommend Emily!

To draw is to be fearless. If you are interested in drawing from life, then I can assist by teaching you the basics or show you how to improve your skill set. I work as a professional artist and have a great deal of knowledge about materials and processes. I enjoy working in ink, pencil (graphite and colored), charcoal, and pastel (oil and soft). I am also into combining media. I have taught for over a decade and my students range in age from children to senior citizens.

About Sandy
I believe in the power of art to change lives. I have been working as a professional artist for several decades and I love what I do. My work ranges from murals to intimate portraiture. My resume includes National Endowment for the Arts funded public art projects, solo exhibitions and museum shows. My drawings, paintings and mixed media works are found in both private and corporate collections.

I enjoy how the act of art-making improves lives. If a certain subject matter moves you, then we will begin there. I emphasize craftsmanship and solid technique. My work leans towards realism. If you are interested in learning anatomy for artists, still life, landscape and generally working from life, then I would be a good fit.

My lessons take place in my studio. I have been teaching for over a decade and enjoy watching my students develo
p. Some of my best moments have been helping students build successful portfolios for entry into higher education.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing your work!

About Timothy K.

Do you want to draw like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to draw simple subject matter, like your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been drawing for 30 years (pencil, pen & ink, colored pencil, and oil pastel). I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in drawing, like cartoons, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and drawing from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon of newmasters.com, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.

About Timothy
I am a fun-loving art teacher who is looking for art students of all ages who want to learn, learn, learn! I enjoy sharing my experiences with you as I draw and paint, you can learn from my successes and my mistakes as an artist. To begin, I will ask you one thing: what is your goal and how far you do you want to go as an artist? (Yeah, maybe that’s two things). Based on that, I can help you develop into the artist YOU want to be! We can begin at the very basics or start off where you are, whatever the level. Whether you begin simply learning how to hold your pencil properly, or want to advance into painting from life, I will give you my very best advice and guidance to help you be your best artist. It’s time to unlock the inner artist within you and cultivate the talent that only YOU possess. There is no other artist like you just as th
ere is no one else who is exactly like you on earth!
