Art Class Teachers' Certificate.
Regulations and Syllabus of Subjects of Examination.
Stage 1a.—A sheet of geometrical problems.
These may be six or eight problems selected to show the power of working neatly and exactly with instruments.
Stage 3b.—An outline of ornament in low relief from the cast.
This may be done from the Madeleine or Louis xii. pilasters, or any large ornamental scroll, and must be executed with a steady hand and in a firm outline: the object being to combine correctness of drawing and neatness of execution.
Stage 5a.—A drawing from a group of models, shaded in sepia, and drawn without background.
This drawing should fairly fill an imperial sheet, and should include some of Wedgewood's or Minton's vases or similar objects.
Stage 5b.—A sheet of ornament shaded from the cast in chalk.
This may be done from the egg-plant portion of the Ghiberti frieze, or other piece of ornament in high relief.
No candidate can be admitted to the examinations in Stages 3b, 5a, or 5b, whose preliminary specimens of work in those stages and in Stage 1a have not been previously accepted as satisfactory.
These four preliminary works must he submitted during the first week in December.
Accepted works become the property of the school.
Candidates whose works have been so accepted, may at their option take one, two, or all the prescribed subjects at the ensuing examination (held annually in the second week of December) and the subjects may be taken in any order.page 27
Candidates may not be re-examined in any subject in which they have once passed.
