Batchelder school of design

DEFINITION

Opened in 1909 in Pasadena, California, it was a teaching and business venue for its founder, Ernest Batchelder, a New Hampshire native artist who also taught at the Throop Institute in Pasadena. The Batchelder School facilities were adjacent to Batchelder's design shop and home. Of the location, it was written: "possibly no other art school in the country occupies a more picturesque site or artistic quarters than the new Batchelder Craft Shop and School of Design on Arroyo Drive overlooking the beauties of the Arroyo Seco." Instruction included painting, embroidery, metal design and copper work, the latter two subjects taught by Douglas Donaldson. Among students were Mary Cecilia Wheeler. The school closed during the 1930s Depression. Sources: www.zoominfo.com/people/Batchelder_E._151280527.aspx (quote); Edan Hughes, AskART biography.
