Reorganized Art Club Holds First Meeting (Vol. 1, Issue 9)

The low cost of painting as a hobby was the subject of a lecture given by Israel Renov, director of the reorganized Art Club, at its first meeting held last Tuesday evening.

The lecture was followed by an open discussion on the program of the Art Club for the coming year. Because of the varied interests of the members, a compromise was arrived at to devote part of each meeting to instruction for beginners and another part of the meeting for individual instruction in varied fields of art. To encourage an interest in art, the club is offering a book on art for the best cartoon on Yeshiva life submitted by January 1st, 1936.

The next meeting of the Art Club, which will be held next Tuesday evening at 8:30 P.M., will feature an illustrated lecture on cartooning and its application by Mr. Renov, director of the club. Mr. Renov is a graduate. of the National Academy of Design and at present teaches drawing in Talmudical Academy. He will give a course at Yeshiva College next semester on art appreciation and the history of art.
