Topeka art school


Begun in 1890 as art lessons by George E. Hopkins on the second floor of the Topeka Public Library, it was an early art education facility. In 1894, cartoonist Albert T. Reid took over the courses. This entity and the Reid-Stone Art School became the basis of the first art curriculum at Washburn University. Among Topeka Art School students were Walter Launt Palmer, Paul Cornoyer and Henry Mosler.
