Under these two heads may be grouped all studies in the theory and history of art, and all the various forms of training for hand and eye. The courses of the Department of Fine Arts Of Teachers College are planned for a progressive growth in ap preciation and power of expression, developing freedom and skill in drawing, painting, modelling and construction. The work is intended to be primarily an exercise of the mind, aiming for power rather than a superficially pleasing result. In fact the student's work might be far from what is ordinarily considered a successful drawing and yet the individual has made a genuine and decided advance in artistic power. Unusual creative genius will often express itself in terms seemingly rude. Accuracy and finish in execution certainly have great value, but more important is the personal feeling, the fresh individual way of expressing ideas in art-form. The Junior or first year courses are devoted to principles of line composition, spacing, values and color harmony, with ex tensive studio practice in drawing, modelling, painting and de signing.
