About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

Hello New Student,

My name is Tara Scott. I am a pastel portrait artist located in Waldorf MD. I teach drawing and painting for ages (7 to Adults) in Southern Maryland. My area of study 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 how 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.

I have been teaching professionally for five years with both small children and adults in many different platforms. My students can expect to develop skills of sketching in paint, rendering objects realistically, color theory, color mixing, texturing and blending, and building contrast. I work with you, where you're at, and develop my lesson plans custom to your individual needs. My students and I always have a blast and make the learning experience fun.

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

Columbus, OH

View Full Profile

I have hosted over 150 painting events teaching couples in homes for date night, and crowds of 25-50 people. I believe that everyone has an inner artist. My fun classes will allow you to explore that as we paint step by step simply beautiful works of art, beginner style. You will tap into that childlike, vulnerable, creative side of yourself. You will only need a canvas and a favorite brush. I will supply all paints, palettes and instruction.

About Gabrielle
Meet Gabrielle:

Gabrielle has coached individuals, choirs, and camps locally and internationally to perfect their tone and sing with skill and freedom. Aside from teaching, she also is a traveling performer, and a host of creative music production workshops in elementary schools and other family friendly venues.

Musical History:

As a professional singer formerly signed to Sony Records and Cherrylane Publishing she has a few songwriting credits in movies, television, albums and video games. After starring in a reality show, releasing an album, touring with some of music's biggest names, walking the red carpet, and performing at the Billboard awards, she returned home to really find her sound after her music group disbanded.

"It has been such a journey. Now that I've found my voice, I want to help others discover theirs too.
It's so important to me. As a striving musician, successes and failures have only deepened my passion and taught me the importance of knowing myself as an artist. I love helping others believe in themselves and release what's truly inside them."

She is very diverse and able to do all kinds of genres. She is also a producer and is passionate about music arrangement, song writing and recording. She currently runs RunSong Studios.

What to Expect as a Student:

* Train to hear the note, tune tone, sing on key 

* Learn to create and control runs and ad libs

* Find the perfect harmonies automatically 

* Strengthen diaphragm and learn to breathe correctly 

* Learn to sing with emotion and let the true individual shine through

* Push the limits with the right exercises and free the voice to truly soar 

* Be empowered and encouraged as a singer and a raw artist, whether this is a hobby or an epic dream

I recommend children's session be no shorter than an hour. 30 minutes goes by very quickly and children's classes are more about building confidence as well as skill which takes a bit longer.

Gabrielle has a deep passion for music and for teaching people how to excel in their musical gift. She also has an excellent ability to compose music and helped me with composing a melody for a song I had written. Gabrielle used to be apart of a musical group where many of her vocal skills and talents were showcased. Because of her experience in the musical industry, my personal experience that I had with her, and her passion, I have no doubt that Gabrielle is the perfect instructor for anyone needing vocal training.

Gwynn Oak, MD

I am a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) majoring in visual artists and continued my studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love painting. 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.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. Materials are not included.

Acrylic painting 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.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.

I have experience teaching painting (and intro to art, art history and art appreciation) to 7-12 graders, adults of all ages at the college level, as well as 3-5 year olds.

As well as 10+ years teaching art at the college level). Though I much prefer to teach painting in person as a plastic medium, I’m willing to be your online Bob Ross :-) In an ideal world this would envolve a painting salon outdoors in good weather, some homework and field trips.

Hi! I'm Corinna! I'm a full time art teacher at a local "paint and sip" studio. I teach ages 5 and up how to sketch and paint. Have a photograph you want to recreate as a painting? We can do that! I can even teach pet portraits too! You don't need any experience to make an awesome piece of art, I'll make sure you have all the guidance you need!

About Corinna
I've loved art since I was a kid. Believe it or not, Bob Ross is the reason I'm an artist today. I remember watching him on TV and telling my Dad that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up!

But like a lot of kids that want to pursue art, I was told that I would never make any money. With my dreams crushed, I did what a "sensible" young adult would do when I was old enough to work. I got a boring desk job, and I hated it.

It wasn't until 2015 that I gathered the courage to change paths and start working as an artist! I work full time teaching art to ages 5 and up and now I've started my own private lessons.

If you've been discouraged to pursue art, it's time to change! Do what you love and get the guidance you need from someone who's walked in your shoes! Even if art is just your hobby, you will be amazed at what a little professional
help can do to increase your skills!
