drawing are etched in darkly or faintly, throwing
out the picture with delicacy and also with force.
Particularly fine, among the many examples we had
the pleasure of inspecting, was the one chosen for

Mr. Will Howe Foote has been con-
ducting a Summer School of Art at

Mystic, Conn., which is to run till the
first of September, providing classes in oils, water-
colors, pastels and black-and-white. An outdoor
sketch class is arranged for three afternoons in the

end of some old oak pew, or let in among the carv-
ing of the oak choir-stalls, blackened by age—a
perfect setting for the brilliance of the enameled

Conn., and was the scene of many incidents in the

river from which it takes its name, on the shores of
the Sound, and gives abundant subject for sketch-
ing and study.
