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 art school.

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.
