HISTORY OF "ART LIGHTS"
Along about the month of MayQ 1924, the energetic
and hopeful graduates of the first class of the Fort Wayne
Art School called a class meeting in the reception room
and decided to have an annual.
Their loyal school spirit prompted them to create
a publication that would be unusual 'and different from
those issued by other similar institutions. They voted
unanimously to do the lettering and illuminating by
hand. Each student was allotted two pages for the
development of his own ideas. In order to make the
book uniform a border was designed for the top and
bottom of feach page. This design suggestedsthe activ-
ities in which each student was most interested. They
were outlined in ink and then tinted. One page was
to consist of specimens of drawings, etchings and block
prints, while the other page had a photograph of the
students and' a poem of his idiosvllcracies. -
Because of the great amount of excitement com-
mensurate with the plans for the' first graduation, the
students did not have an opportunity to finish the book
until May, ' ' i - V -'ji -'
T 'Thepbwooks were distributed at the Alumnae aban-
quet held in' the Little Art Theatre on June 9. The
book stands as an inspiration forother classest '
