About Tara

Hello My name is Tara S. I am a portrait artist in Waldorf, MD using dry mediums pastels, charcoal, graphite, and pencil. I am also an acrylic painter combining both pastels and acrylic paint to my work. I have my Associate Arts Degree in Studio Art, and my Bachelor's of Art Degree in Visual Performing Arts.

I have taught children and youths ages (5-17) basic to advanced drawing and painting. My work has been awarded with the Portrait Society of Atlanta, and two of my artwork was featured in the City Paper in Washington DC. I was also selected as an artist to sell my artwork at the Black Heritage Art Show in Baltimore MD, and also at the National Harbor in Oxon Hill MD.

My technique to teach individuals how to draw and paint in 10 lessons is by using a grid, viewfinder, and breaking down an image either by a photo or still life one square at a time. I can help you to improve your drawing and painting techniques, whether you are a beginner or advanced. I can also help students to improve on their art portfolio before submitting to art schools.

For more information on scheduling a lesson with me contact me by email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
