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.

We can draw in any medium, from charcoal to graphite. Topics covered will be basic drawing fundamentals, materials and methods, form drawing, still life, figure, head, and anything else you may wish to work on.

Gwynn Oak, MD

View Full Profile

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 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.

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.

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.
