The artist as teacher

ALS, two pages, 7 x 10.25, personal letterhead, no date. Rockwell writes to Mr. Jackson. In part: “I have recommended your getting the scholarship from Famous Artists Schools. You would start the course in about two weeks, so instead of sending you materials, I am sending, thru the courtesy of Mr. Burchell, six of the books similar to the ones you will receive…. I am sending you these books so you look them over and get a sort of head start. But do not do the lessons or send your work in until you are fully registered…. Good luck….” Rockwell was a longtime instructor at the Famous Artists Schools, a correspondence course known for its ads in magazines and on matchbooks challenging prospective artists to “Draw Tippy!” A touch of mild soiling and handling wear and staple holes to top margins, otherwise fine condition. R&R COA.
