The Artisans’ institute began its second session on Monday evening, in its new rooms on Wall street, in rear of Centennial building with a gratifying attendance of new and oldstudents. As the school can only accommodate forty scholars at one time, youngmen desiring to share its advantages must apply at once. The same teachers who made the school so useful last year will be in charge of it this year. Mechanical drawing, as well as the use of wood working and iron workingtools, will be taught. Such schools as this offer the surest means of increasing and improving the useful industries of Atlanta. If, in addition to these evening classes, an arrangement could be made which would give to promising pupils in our public schools an opportunity to use the apparatus of the Artisans’ institute on certain afternoons of the week, we should confer an inestimable benefit upon our youth and the productive industries which we wish to encourage. The teachers and supporters of the institute are glad to receive any friends of the movement in their rooms on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7 to 9 o’clock.
