Title Basket of Chips, page 075
Description Career, Rommce, and Family in a .ny follower of the arts it is "han ds off" and the most careful and broadest instruction should be given. Only see that there is proper light and moisture given to the plant and the healthy rapid growth will follow. It is the mediocre one that must have incessant pruning, transplanting, change of soil, begging and petting to get results, and those are the ones we are paid to grind through our mills.`" My grist mill, containing many fans, grinding stones, sieves, and so forth, runs a few hours through many days of the year. I have several sized screens with different grades of meshes. The large one seldom retains anything but it does often enough to give joy to the miller. These few take no energy nor toil on his part, but the remainder find their way to the grist and the mil- lers' process is with them.`" The first thing I try to impress upon them is to be honest, sincere and truthful in every thing they do. It is forming a good habit. In starting the drawing I tell the student: "The space on the outside of the model is as important as the model ." "That piece of paper is to be properly filled. If it is too large, divide it." "Suppose your work is to fit a frame when completed, con- sider that beauty must extend to the edges of the frame, but not to mar the central interest of the drawing." "The shell is just as important to the nut as the kernel or meat." "You block it in, then rub out the lines before beginning to draw. A builder will not erect his scaffold, then remove it to start the building." 73 Jack Sears remembered Harwood classes in which "we would spend a whole week preparing a drawing of a ball." Yet, Harwood was called "a patient, loving teacher." Haseltine, 100 Years, 19; Olpin, Dictionary, 117-18. 74 Like his French masters, Harwood insisted that his students labor ex- haustively in pursuing their art and strongly felt that an artist must learn how to observe and then draw sensitively and accurately those things he observed. He conditioned his students in the traditional manner with much academic drawing from plaster casts and live models." Leek, "James `I'. Harwood," 4-5. 7.5
