About this pro

We are a small family run atelier whos art philosophy is in line with the European Old Masters. We teach with a multi-discilplinary philosophy. Our students learn multiple genre and media together so that the advantages and challenges of one aid in the understanding in the others. Our studio looks and feels like stepping back into a 19th century french atelier with a large north facing skylight and sculptures by Baltimore's "Monument Maker" Hans Schuler.  Visit for images of paintings, staff bios and class information. Visit for a website from two of the instructors.

Our students are treated like family. They eat at the dining room table and forge lifelong friendships with the staff and fellow students.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We like to start beginners with lessons in Charcoal fundamentals. The students learn how to use their drawing tools, recognize shapes and proportions, push contrast, work edges, design compositions, and understand light. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

All of the instructors at the Schuler School are graduates of the program and show their work professionally.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Part time classes are aroud $40 per class. The full-time curriculum is the best deal among art institutions depending on the student's attendance. Full-time tuition covers all classes: M-F 9-noon, 1-4, all evening classes Tue and Wed 7-9:30 and Saturday class 10-1. Tuition for the Full-time semester is $2800.

How did you get started teaching?

The Schuler School began in 1959 with Ann and Hans Schuler, professional artists and teachers from the Maryland Institute. They split with the Maryland Institute to focus their instruction to the lessons from the European Old Masters.

What types of students have you worked with?

We teach students from all walks of life. Our students vary in experience, age, race and creed. We will accept anyone with a willingness to learn what we teach.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our Student an Faculty art shows are excellent. Students put their hard work on display, meet clients and potentially make some sales. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

We want students to look at our artwork and it will speak for itself. Our faculty and alumni are well represented in magazines, books, art shows, galleries and art-related professions such as medical illustration, computer graphics, and artists that work on commissions.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are their ultimate goals in regard to an art education? What artists inspire you, what era?
