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.

Laurel, 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 mor information, website at jfa-studios.com.

I have over 30 years experience with painting, sketching, and Color theory. My passion is to share my knowledge and understanding. I have been consistently teaching groups and a one on one basis for the past 3 years. I understand from an early age the impact art has. I specialize each class according to the need and desire of each of my students. I will creat an art platform so it will be easy to reference back to. My student I specialize are of all ages and beginners/intermediate. I absolutely love what I do! Let’s get started!!

About Andrea
Her talent was discovered by her mentor, her grandfather, also an artist.She had an eye for color. She could draw anything as an exact match. Eventually this amazing talent and passion translated into paintings. This connection with colliding colors is what initially set her work apart in shows and competitions and has led to a growing following of galleries and collectors alike.

Andrea has been featured in many publications in and around the art community. She’s donated paintings to many organizations in Dallas, TX, Riverside, CA and in the Orange County area.

She has since independently illustrated and published her own children’s book. Andrea has decided to follow her heart, her passion, and her dreams by teaching others.

About David L.

I’ve been teaching for a year and welcome students of all levels! My lessons are all about training your eye and mastering the foundational elements of art so you can draw anything from life our you imagine. I bring lots of practical techniques and old school methods introduced in a modern way that takes into account the interest of my students and keeps the learning fresh and fun.

At all of my lessons I introduce the works of an established modern or classical artist that either exemplifies the lesson of the day or is someone whose work or life story I think my student might find interesting. We don’t just learn how to draw or paint but also learn how to talk about art and make it more a part of your everyday life.

About David
I have a bachelors degree in printmaking and oil painting and spent some time in Florence, Italy studying painting and drawing by studying the High Renaissance masters. Currently I draw and paint in my spare time. I love teaching art as a way to connect with other artist and creative people who like talking about and creating art.

Through introducing or reviewing the fundamental principles in art and applying those to the lessons and exercises I assign for after class hours, you’ll see yourself improve week after week and gain more confidence in your artistic ability. I create a custom syllabus for you to review and work in things you’d like to try, certain mediums or subject matter to make it more appealing to you.

Making art should be fun and restorative! I’m very flexible in meeting your needs and speed at which you want to lea

About Isabela M.

Close
Fort George G Meade, MD

View Full Profile

Educated in Europe, I was always inspired by my teachers and travels to continue honing my artistic skills. With practice, anybody can develop their own style, and I believe it's my duty to pass on the knowledge that was instilled in me as a young artist.

Expression of one's soul in art may be sometimes stronger than words, something that psychologists have proven for years.

About Isabela
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is.

I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and
pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

About Rachel C.

Want to draw your best friend, lifetime pet, or a flower you might have come across on a recent walk? Or, do you just wish you could record your memories and dreams? Well, as it happens, you can.

Drawing with me will empower you with a basic understanding of shape, movement, line quality, light and shadows, composition, perspective, critical thinking, and best of all, the confidence to draw anything.

My approach to teaching art is influenced by my teachers from grade school through college as well as Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and Mona Brookes' Drawing with Children: A Creative Method for Adult Beginners, Too.

To see if this course is right for you email me to start a conversation about your interests and expectations.

About Rachel
Hello everyone!

I am so excited to meet you and see what you have to say through art. Art is a way of seeing and understanding the world. Learning the basic tools for understanding and creating art will enrich your life, regardless of who you are.

To tell you more about myself, in New England I majored in Visual Art with a focus in painting, minoring in English as well. In Alaska I was home schooled throughout grade school, immersing myself in art classes, voice lessons, and the classical texts. I have have taught all ages, and a wide variety of approaches to drawing, including comic art. A few things you will learn from looking at my portfolio are that I love impressionism, people, texture, layers, and explosions of color.
