'PORTRAIT BY ARTHUR R. FREEDLANDER
Arthur R. Freedlander has made
a new departure in his summer course
in architectural rendering at Vineyard Haven.
Heretofore,” as he says, “the student had
practically no instruction in water-color to ena-
ble him to render his problems in an interesting
way, so that many a good design has been ruined.
Working directly from nature and studying the
technical processes gives the student, in a very
■short while, an understanding of his medium
impossible to acquire in any other way. The
course comprises landscape and marine paint-
ing, the massing of foliage, color and sky effects,
■etc. In France this branch of work is pursued
more thoroughly. The men go off in summer
sketching tours, painters, sculptors and architects
joining forces. This is the very spirit I wish to
foster, making the course part of a vacation plan to
the students and draughtsmen.” The course has
been approved by many of the leading architects,
including Mr. Thomas Hastings, of New York, and
Mr. Despradelles, of Boston. We reproduce some
interesting work of Mr. Freedlander on this page.
The summer term of the London School of Art
will be held this year in the picturesque town of
Furnes, Flanders. A studio will be provided for
the use of the students, and a costume model will
pose daily in the studio or in the open air. There
will also be a special class in composition. Mr.
Frank Brangwyn, A.R.A., will give three criti-
cisms each week. Additional criticisms will be
given during the week by Mr. C. P. Townsley.
The term will open July 29, closing September 8.
The class is limited to twenty members.
Miss Yandell will have a summer school at
Edgartown, island of Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.,
in modeling, drawing and wood carving. Classes
will open June 1, closing October 1.
