Administration Email: email@example.com 5 E. Lafeyette Avenue Baltimore, Maryland 21202 United States Phone: (410) 685-3568 Since 1959, the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, Maryland, has been training students in the methods and techniques of the European Old Masters. Assuring 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, is a goal rarely achieved in other institutions. 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 a foundation for the study of painting and sculpture. Emphasis is placed on the mastery of the technical aspects of each discipline, such as the grinding of powder pigments, the cooking of Maroger mediums, and preparation of painting surfaces.
The teaching goal of the Schuler School program is to train professional artists in the perfection of their craft. Central to our curriculum is the study of anatomy and drawing, as well all technical aspects of each course, preparation of the Maroger medium for instance. Students are also taught to understand the interrelationship between the various disciplines that we teach.
The full course consists of:
Four full-time years (eight semesters) of the entire curriculum (anatomy, sculpture, watercolor, painting, portrait, drawing, life drawing)
Demonstration of the ability to perform all required technical skills (such as stretching canvases, preparing medium, casting)
A completed senior project (during their fourth year, senior students research an artist or art period that interests them and translate that research into an art work or body of works in a chosen medium).
A positive evaluation by all instructors
After fulfilling these requirements, the student is awarded a certificate of completion of the program. Deserving students are encouraged to participate in a fifth postgraduate year on full scholarship, which enables them to specialize in their area of interest and to assist the instructors. The staff believes that beginners benefit from the advanced knowledge shared by our graduates both in demonstrating their work and in shaping their careers.
Watts Atelier of the Arts is located in the quiet beach town of Encinitas, CA, 30 miles north of San Diego. The Atelier was founded by Jeffrey R. Watts in 1992 as an intimate studio environment. It is now operated by Mr. Watts and a core of teachers predominantly trained at the atelier. Watts Atelier has been modeled after the studio atelier of nineteenth century Europe. We at Watts Atelier believe that building a strong foundation of skills is the most important endeavor for any student. We believe the path to prosperity in any field is paved with superior knowledge, a strong work ethic, and a clear focus of purpose. Much like an athlete or musician, the visual artist must continue to build skills, and maintain them through diligent practice of the fundamental concepts of art. Watts Atelier brings together students of all ages and skill levels, from professional to novice, in an environment of visual learning that is highly structured with a low student-to-teacher ratio. Watts Atelier now offers three progressive certificate programs: Foundation, Advanced, and Portfolio. Students of all levels are welcome. No portfolio review is required for enrollment.

Michael Newberry Icarus Landing Acrylic on linen 36 x 55 cm (14.17" x 21.65") Private collection
Has painted and shown his art for over 30 years. He taught Drawing and Composition, Life Drawing, and Painting in the Foundation and Fine Art programs at Otis College of Art and Design. You can view his work at www.NewberryArchive.com, one of the largest archives of a living artist on the internet. And view is current work at www.RomanticRealism.net.
Fundamentals in Drawing and Composition, Life Drawing, and Painting are for students seeking essentials and fresh insights into art making. Classes are held in his spacious loft/studio in Williamsburg, 15 minutes from Manhattanís Union Square. Here they will learn the basics of perspective, believable forms, composition, and light and shadow. Newberry combines classical techniques with innovative methods, many of which really simplify the process, such as his theory of triangulation of light and dark. But he never goes long on technique without accenting the emotional/psychological meanings of, for instance, depth and balance.
Classes are scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 - 9:30 P.M. and programs are usually four to six weeks. For prices and schedule go to www.NewberryWorkshop.com.
Classes limited to six students.
For individual study he offers a mentor/apprentice program custom designed for your needs. It is based on critique format in which Newberry reviews your art on weekly or bi-weekly basis and then he suggests a course of action to further your work. It has also been successfully done long distance over the internet with digital images of your art combined with teleconferencing.
