THE MID-LENTEN NEWS OF LOCAL SOCIETY
AND WHAT IS OCCURRING IN WOMAN’S SPHERE MRS. ELDRED TALKS OF DRAW ING IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. DINNER PARTIES AND LUNCH EONS FOR LENTEN BRIDES AND VISITORS—MISS ROSE OWEN M'DAVID AND MISS VIR GINIA M'DAVID HOSTESSES AT THE CLUB—OTHER MATTERS OF SOCIAL- MOMENT—EN GAGEMENTS y—• The public schools of Birmingham are giving much this winter toward general cultivation and development of tf sym pathy between patrons and the teachers. At frequent meetings of the Improvement associations, which are part of every school In the city, the problems grow . Jug out of tho teaching of tho various branches which compose the superb sys tem for which tho local schools aro noted mo discussed to the mutual satisfaction of teachers an* -mothers. At the meet ing this week in the South Highlands schools, Mrs. J.cnora Eldj-ed of the de partment of drawing and manual arts, and Miss Hogan of the music department, each presented a practical paper on the need of her branch of work and the dif ficulties encountered In presenting It. Mrs. Eldred’s paper on: "The Reasons for Teaching Drawing In the Public Schools," was chiefly extemporaneous, and Its interest was enhanced by the il lustrations which Mrs. Eldred had gath ered among examples of work done in the various schools Basing her argument on the familiar attitude. "I know noth ing about art. but I know what I like," she very cleverly presented her plea for arttistic appreciation, saying that "the lone and manner of the speaker must be considered in Interpreting these woods. They may indicate anything from pro found regret for personal Ignorance to supremo contempt for esthetics and all who assume to talk on (hat subject." In any case, the words reveal a com mon and unfortunate attitude of mind. One does not say aloud. “I know noth ing about mark . but 1 know what I like!" The ethical attitude Is, l want to know what In right that I may do it. Tho uttltude toward art should be: "I want to imow wbaL is beautiful that 1 may on joy it." Those words express, I believe, the vi al desire of every normal human be ing. We all wish to bo able to recognize beauty wherever It appears and to take delight in it, to be able to produce beauty in whatever we do that everybody may like ti. Such u condition is of courso not at tainable) by all in equal degree. Artists Will continue to bo born, not made, but porson who ‘ knows what he likes" may know something "about art"—the order ing of tho elements to produce beauty. Dr. Denman W. Ross lias put It: "We may all loarn what constitutes order, and wo may achieve that, at least, in our daily lives. Beauty is a supreme ex ample of order, achieved instinctively and recognized intlntivoly. That it re served for the masters.” But we may all learn the elements of beauty and embody tin in in our work. This will help us to discover and to en joy beauty Itself in nature and In art. At the very outset let us agree with VI a to that: "Those things which are naid to he done by nature are Indeed done by divine art.” and furthermore, let us assume with Kmerson that: "Beauty ti ono behind mnny apportions; that the elements of beauty in nature, in paint ing, sculpture, tho vuilous handicrafts, architecture, poetry, music and life it self are essentially tho snm©, con \ ertlble, translatable from ono art into another. A truhiing which calls for a very di rect exercise of tho critical powers, de veloping Judgment and skill Is n train ing that will increase the individuals’ efficiency whatever his calling may lie. The true purpose of art teaching is the eudcatlon of the whole people for ap preciation. The general public lias not thought of rirt. education in this way, but lias acknowledged the vnluo of "draw ing." especially whore it can serve some utilitarian purpose. A better understand ing of the true usefulness of art recog nizes creativo power as a divine gift, the natural endowment of every human soul showing Itself ut first In tho form that wo call appreciation. Tills appreciation leads a certain number to produce actual marks of art, greater or lesser,—perhaps it temple, perhaps only a cup—but it leads the majority to desire finer form and more harmony of tone and color in surroundings und things for daily use.

It Is the Individuals' right to have full control of these powers. Even from an economic side that edu cation is deijgnt which leaves one unable to Judge or form and color when he is constantly required to use such Judgment. Tills lack of appreciation is responsible for an immense waste of ifiber, -Skill and money in the production of useless and ugly things. A nations' ideals arc re vealed In its art and its' art has greatest value when It is tho expression of the spirit of the whole people. Skill In drawing as taught in the pub lic schools seeks not to develop special talent and ptepare tho way for the ar tists' career but is sought as a means of expression—not an end in itself. When drawing U well taught Its edu cation value Is exceedingly great. ft Is second only to that of language. Per haps the most Impot tant reason for Its study is Its unrivalled value in train ing the senses, thus opening a way to a full enjoyment of whatever is beautiful In ottr home—the world. First, draw ing tends to develop the power to see and we aro told 80 per cent of the knowl edge wo gain lit llfo is conveyed through the eye. Wo are told on every hand that the power to observe closely and !n falibly whatever Is placed before tho eye is of supreme Importance to the Individual in the realm of science, literature and industrial and social life, to say noth ing of the realms of the fine arts. We are told that the power to sit down tiuthfully and graphically the facts 01 form and appearance Is almost equally valuable In every department of human activity. The average man sees Imperfectly and images dimly He cannot tell, for exam ple, wltere the ordinary Homan letters are shaded, nor the shape of his own boot, nor the color of his friend's eyes. His observation with regard to all mate rial things is loose and unreliable, ft lias been said that unless a man has a trained eye his testimony in court con cerning any material fact Is not to be trusted. Agassiz said, "A pencil Is one of the best of eyes." Graphic representation helps to focus the eye upon the objoct as the thumbscrew focuses the camera, or as an adjusted lens corrects defective vision. Clearer vision of natural objects en hances one's enjoyment of nature and en riches the content of life. For lack of the clos* observation which a training in representation would sup ply, the avetage matt lias no clear linages of his own with which to read or think. Consequently, the stimuli which cause a satisfactory reaction In his brain must bo Intense, tils music must be brass bond music, his color thrill can come only from n gorgeous sunset or something gaudy In color. HIh news must be served up by yellow Journals in Oaring head lines and dramatic pictures. He can be ren cited only by colored posters and ad vertising signs 10 feet Itigh. His recrea tion, even, must be highly artificial. Dean Shuler once said: "The value ot drawing In all departmonta ol' science not only as a language but as a disciple of Hie mind tan hardly be overestimated. Every de partment of human activity offers unlim ited opportunity to men of vision." Besides developing the power to see, the study of drawlrfg In the schools devel opes the power of expression. It is un necessary to review in detail tho value of this power in almost every human occu pation. Itt n conference at Harvard uni versity on the relation of the high school to thu college, in 1903, President Eliot said: "1 have recently examined all the courses offered by tho uni versify and 1 llnd but one (the course in theology) lit which a knowledge of drawing would not be of Immediate value, and even here 1 think It might help In some cases). Tite power to draw Is greatly needed in nearly all tho courses and absolutely In dlepansible In some of them. A very large proportion of studies now train the mem ory, a very small proportion train tho power to see straight and do straight skill. The advancement of any one in his pro fession, the designer, the Illustrator, the architect, the house furnisher, the land scape gardener, not less titan the painter and the sculptor, depends primarily on the power of graphte representation by means of line and color. I havo already said that ihc practice of graphic art develops the .power of ap preciation. Every attempt to represent a blade of grass, a leaf or a. flower, every attempt to catch the movement or gesture of any living thing, e^ery nttemptlto rep resent n tree or tho sky, a body of water or the sweep of the hills, prepares the mind as nothing elso can for the appre ciation of standard works of art by art ists who have perfected themselves in this art of truthful representation. Tho heart of man Is never satisfied. We shall go on demanding lllustratd books and papers, paintings to Imng upon our walls, pictures spread before our eyes in the landscape, beautiful garments and Jewels, beautiful temples, civic buildings and homes; and the men and women who produce all these In each generation are among the boys and girls In the public schools of the preceding generation. Tho character of the art which they will pro duce will depend very largely upon tho amount of training they receive and tho extent to which they have been made fa miliar with what genius has done before them.
