The Museum School was opened during the winter of 1877-1878. At first, instruc- tion was confined to Drawing, Painting, Modeling and Design. It was seen that only by familiarizing the student with the processes and industrial application of design could proper stimulation be given him to estimate at their true value the advantages the School offered. Since its founding the curriculum of the School has been gradually extended and devel- oped to keep pace with the constantly growing demand for artists and design- ers in industrial fields. The Evening School Classes have been planned to present professional instruction to students who must concentrate their study into evening hours or who desire the stimulation of in- struction in relation to their daytime work. PROFESSIONAL CLASSES EVENING SCHOOL, 1948-1949 DRAWING A preparatory course in the fundamentals of drawing is given to the students entering the Evening School who have not had previous training. The aim of the instruction in this class is to develop appreciation of proportion, line, form and color; also a correct definition of light and shade, and facility in handling the media of charcoal, pencil, pastel, crayon, etc. Slides of work by the masters in fine arts, past and present, and examples of con- temporary trends in commercial art will be shown. Following a year of satisfactory basic work the student may enter an advanced class in drawing from life. While, in this group, the student will further his pre- liminary training in detail, the special interest of the class will be directed toward the promotion of that animation in drawing which may only be obtained through study of the living figure. A student will be advanced during the year when his progress warrants it. A four-year course in drawing can be arranged for upon the successful comple- tion of which a certificate will be awarded. OIL PAINTING The course in Oil Painting is offered to students who have had one or more years of study in the Drawing Class, or who, through previous experience, can qualify for this class. The course will include Still-Life, Portraiture, Costume Model and Life with emphasis on fundamentals, composition, sound experimentation, which lead to individual forms of expression. WATER COLOR Rendering and painting in Water Color is offered in the Evening School to those students who have had one or more years of study in the drawing classes, or who, through previous experience, can qualify for this class. The course introduces the student to the various methods and techniques of handling water color, both in portraiture and experimental interpretation from the model. JEWELRY AND SI LVERSMITH ING The aim of this course is to give a practical workshop training in the use of tools, methods, processes and materials. By the application of design as an essential part of good workmanship, a gradual perfecting of craftsmanship is obtained through the making first, of a very simple object, and developing to those of greater complexity. These classes in Jewelry and Silversmithing will only be given if we have eight or more registering, and is limited to fifteen students. Monday and Wednesday classes are enrolled separately. No student takes both evenings. INTERIOR DESIGN This course is offered to those interested in the professional practice of Interior Decoration. Emphasis will be placed on knowledge of the materials of decoration and their organization in three dimensional design rather than on draftsmanship. Lectures on furniture, decorative textiles, wall coverings and other materials of the interior decorator will, however, be supplemented by drawing-board practice in the de- velopment of floor plans and elevations necessary to the presentation of creative ideas. The course is planned to cover two years, at the completion of which, satisfactory students will be granted a certificate. Graduation from High School is a prerequisite for admission to this course. Con- tact this School and request a transcript form to be used for filing your High School record. WOODWORK AND JOINERY The course in Woodwork and Joinery develops the technique of the bench, and gives the practical application of design to the construction of furniture.
