Excerpt from Free-Hand Drawing: Light and Shade and Free-Hand Perspective for the Use of Art Students and Teachers

The notes on Model Drawing, forming the body of this book, were prepared for the use of the students of the Massachusetts Normal Art School. They were printed without illustrations, as explanations of the drawings given in the course of lectures on this subject, and will be of little assistance to those not taking the lectures. Having been requested for the book by persons not students of the school, and realizing that drawing is often poorly taught, especially in our public schools, and being unable to recommend a book which treats the subject simply and presents artistic methods of work, I concluded to rewrite the notes, adapting them to general use, and meeting, as far as possible, the demand for a text-book on the principles of free-hand drawing.

The book is intended especially for teachers, and at first glance the artist may think it considers more theory than is necessary. No one can be more strongly convinced than I, of the folly of teaching and depending upon theory alone.

Excerpt from Free-Hand Drawing: Light and Shade and Free-Hand Perspective for the Use of Art Students and Teachers If his mind is so constructed that he cannot discover and apply the few rules necessary for this work, it is quite likely that his time will be more profitably spent in some other direction; for the rules of perspective which the artist requires are so simple as to be easily given in a few sentences. From the standpoint of the artist, then, there may be more theory than is needed, but the teacher of much experience will not find this true.
