THE ART DEPARTFIENT. -
Drawing is rightly a part of the education of every man and woman. A
knowledge of it may always be turned to account, especially in these days
when there is so large a demand for decorative work and applied art. There
is no other study, regarded in the light of training, that so inculcates the
power and habit of observation, that so fosters accuracy, or tends more
surely to correct those errors of sight, and incidentally of judgment, that
arise from inapt seeing. Nor does any study prove to be of greater service
to the student in after life, even though he pursues a vocation that is far
removed from art. Pictures are the universal language, and the ability to
make them, slight though it may be, is one that confers a distinct practical
advantage on the individual, while it is of yet higher service in purifying his
pleasures and raising the standard of his tastes.
Drawing has a place in every year of the curriculum of the Academy.
In the primary grades it has a solid basis in the manual training course,
with which it is properly joined. The manual training Workrooms are two
in number, one for younger pupils and one for students who are old enough
for bench work and carving. In the higher grammar grades and in the
collegiate department free-hand drawing may be continuously studied, either
as required or optional work. In addition to the facilities offered to the
students in the regular courses of study, every possible advantage is secured
to those who Wish to devote themselves exclusively to the study of art.
The whole of the upper story of the Collegiate Building is devoted to the
Art Department. There is a spacious studio which is furnished with full and
half-sized statues, large and small torsos, busts, masks, and reliefs. There is
also a large room for classes in drawing and painting from life. Besides,
there are three rooms : for modeling, the making of casts, and for the use of
The special scholar entering the Art Department is independent of the
academic branches of the school, and there are no restrictions as to age.
One may choose, according to predilection or ability, between the antique,
still life, portrait, figure, charcoal, pastel, oil and water color, or he may
include all in his studies for which he finds time.
Students in this Department are admitted to all the privileges of the
College Library and Reading-room.
It is hardly needful to cite the success which has come to many of
our painters, sculptors and illustrators from the training and criticism they
received in this school. It is enough merely to name among its graduates
such well-known artists as'William Ordway Partridge, Frank M. Boggs,
Wilson De Meza, Albert P. Lucas, Orrin W. Simons, Harry Roseland,
Hugh Eaton, W. E. Plympton, Phoebe Bunker, Eleanor Bannister, Mrs. G.
D. Stearns, Gerald L. Steenks, Carrie L. Carter, Mrs. A. W. Bailey, M.
R. Dixon, Alice Lovett, C. A. Burlingame and joseph H. Boston.
