Ruth A. Curtis art notebook
This collection contains a single notebook of Ruth A. Curtis of Windsor, Connecticut. The notebook documents her studies in art, spanning two different groups of lessons from 1906-1909. There are encouraging notes from her instructor, Marshall T. Fry, and several examples of her art, including woodblock prints and two colorful drawings of flowers. Her notes include motive, arrangement, color, shape, value, intensity, design principles, and lecture notes. Curtis also copied a "Schedule of 10 lessons in design" by Frank Alvah Parsons of the Chase Art School in New York. Immediately following this schedule was a list of materials and their costs for a "Winter 1908-9" group of lessons with "Instructor Marshall Frye."
