SUBURBAN ARTISAN SCHOOLS - THE NORTH LONDON SCHOOLS OF DRAWING AND MODELLING
This establishment presents one of the most gratifying successes of the
recent attempts to extend the means of art-education in this country.
The above School, situated at Camden-town, a locality favourable as the residence of a superior class of artistans, may be considered a model-school for the education of art-workmen. The institution has been in active operation for nearly two years, and has more than realised the expectations of its most sanguine promoters, being attended by about 100 male and 30 female pupils.
The School is under the patronage of his Royal Highness Prince Albert, to whose liberality it is greatly indebted. It is conducted by a committee of artists, architects, and manufacturers; the separate classes being under the supervision of practical artists of established repute.
