Since 1959, the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, Maryland has been training students in the methods and techniques of the Old Masters. The goal of the Schuler School has been, and continues to be, to assure that future generations of artists receive the wisdom of the past while acquiring the creative freedom that only the mastery of traditional skills can provide. This four year non-accredited atelier school provides a lively atmosphere in which students receive a high degree of personal attention. Drawing is stressed as the foundation for the study of painting and sculpture, and emphasis is placed on the mastery of the technical aspects of each discipline. This includes: grinding powdered pigments with the black oil that the student has prepared; making Maroger medium; preparing painting surfaces; making molds and casting sculpture, etc. The classes taught at the Schuler School train the artist in the perfection of their craft while teaching them the interrelationships of the various disciplines.

The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts is just what its name implies a fine art museum featuring great works of art in the finest classic tradition. Not only does the museum have a fine collection, but the building and grounds are lovely as well. Sara and I both very much enjoyed our visit there and we highly recommend that you visit the WCMFA as well.
The American Visionary Art Museum features the best outsider-art we have seen. Despite the fact that the artists lack formal training, their work is outstanding and thought provoking as are the stories of the artists themselves.
The curators at the AVAM have done an amazing job of assembling the very best of these unknown artists. The AVAM has one of the most unique and wonderful collections we have ever seen. Sara and I both had a wonderful time there and plan to go back often.
Beyond being simply the Best of Baltimore the AVAN is truly a world class museum
