I’ve just returned from six weeks in Baltimore at the Schuler School of Fine Art. Hans Schuler lived and worked as a sculptor in Baltimore in the early 1900s. His descendants still live and work in the same home and studio. They are dedicated to using materials and methods as closely resembling those of the Old Masters as is possible today.
I started drawing with charcoal from casts and moved on to painting the same casts. After that, I did still life paintings for the remainder of the course.
I enjoyed learning there and getting to see Baltimore, including a site nearby where one of my ancestors fought and died close to the city in the War of 1812.
