Aengaende voor eerst de Leeringh, {I. De Leer-tijt.} die moetmen vroeg beginnen, voorsichtigh aenleggen, ende van alles dat de algemeene Teyken-Konst, Bouw-konst, Perspectijf, Mensch-kunde, Ordineeringh ende Coloreeringh aengaet, neerstigh doorsoecken, ende arbeyden om van jonghs aen, sulcken fixen ende vaerdigen maniere aen te nemen, datmen in geene dingen verlegen blijve; noch oyt een arbeytsame pijlijckheyt in sijne Konst-Wercken en laet blijcken, maer de rechte eenvoudigheyt der nature kome te vertoonen; welcke alleen ende oock niet anders verkregen wordt, dan, na datmen van alles goede fondamenten geleyt heeft, want die Jongelingen welcke vande voornaemste gronden der Konsten weynigh wercks maecken, geven weynigh hope van seer geleert daer in te werden.

[suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] First of all regarding the Education, {I. The Apprenticeship.} one should start it early, starting carefully, and diligently investigating all that concerns the general Art of Drawing, Architecture, Perspective, Anatomy, Composition and Coloring, and working to obtain such a firm and able manner right from childhood, that one will not be lacking in anything; nor ever show a laborious grieve in his Art Works, but display the true simplicity of nature; which is then only obtained after one has taken good principles of everything, because those young men who do not put that much work in the main principles of the Arts, have little hope to become very learned in them.
