The Philadelphia Museum of Art is an 
institution incorporated in 1876 at the 
time of the Centennial Exposition for the 
purpose of establishing a Museum of Art 
in all its branches and technical applica- 
tions, with a special view to the develop- 
ment of the Art industries of the State. 
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.
