Catonsville Art Classes
In 1960, Maria's mother, Cecilia Staub, began teaching art classes
in a basement studio near Catonsville. Although we have outgrown
the basement, the Staub Art Studio is proud to continue the family
tradition with our Maryland
Part of our tradition is commitment to an artist's development.
The first thing about our Catonsville art
classes that you will notice is their small size. We keep
our classes small so that our instructors can give each student's
work the personal attention that helps an artist to grow. Some of
our Catonsville art students have become art teachers, graphic designers
and professional freelance artists. We also offer a student art portfolio service to help aspiring artists get into college.
Another tradition is the emphasis on realism. We believe that the
basic skills of an artist are seeing the world clearly and training
the hands to draw what the eye sees. Our art classes give the student
plenty of hands-on practice rendering shape and form, as well as
color and light, with pastels, pen and ink, charcoal, watercolor,
acrylics and oils. Working from this foundation, we guide the artist
to expand their horizons and develop a unique style.
We also believe in forging long-lasting teaching relationships.
All of our instructors have a long history with our studio, so students
who attend our Catonsville art classes will benefit from constructive
criticism from mentors that know their work and know their potential.
Art Classes for Howard County Residents
If you are looking for art classes, Howard County residents will
point you toward Edmondson Avenue and the Staub Art Studio. This
renovated studio is located in the Junction in Catonsville and is
owned and operated by Maria Staub Goebel. She grew up with art students
coming and going to her mother’s art classes, and now enjoys
teaching students to see the world the way an artist does.
At Staub Art Studio, we structure our courses so that you can choose
subjects that matter to you and give you the experience you need
to become a better artist. If you are a beginner, you’ll learn
to layout sketches and drawings, develop your ability to see detail
and capture those details in charcoal, graphite and pastels. Advanced
studies strengthen your talents and help you build a quality portfolio.
We hold two 15 class sessions each year in the fall and spring,
as well as a short summer session with 9 classes. The fall session
of our Howard County art classes begins in mid-September, spring
classes begin in February and the summer session starts in June.
For over 40 years, the Staub Art Studio has been a vital part of
the Catonsville art community. Its close proximity to Howard County
makes the Staub Art Studio the perfect art school for Baltimore
and Howard County residents. Call us today at (410) 744-9001.
