Ever wonder where inspiration strikes? School 33 Art Center today offers a chance to peer into the studios of Baltimore artists -- and to ask how they do what they do. From noon until 5 p.m., the art center is offering a bus tour -- led by School 33 director Peter Dubeau and artist Breon Gilleran -- of about two dozen art studios. The tour, which focuses on neighborhoods north of North Avenue, will include stops at the workspaces of artists such as Cathy Leaycraft, who uses figures and natural elements to create surreal photo collage landscapes, and James von Minor, who transforms the everyday materials of wood and cement into sculpture.

An enduring genre of art has come to the pristine white walls of the Columbia Association Art Center's gallery. The Baltimore Watercolor Society (BWS), the third-oldest of its kind in the country, has an exhibit at the center that brings together artists dedicated to watercolors. "I love watercolors because of the transparency and the ease and flow of the medium," said Joan Tarbell, the exhibit's coordinator and a member of BWS. "You can do a lot with watercolors."
