In this print we see a woman in a chair sitting at table. The table is in the foreground and the woman sits behind it. She is wearing a light colored dress and has shoulder length hair and the print is truncated above her eyes so we do not see the top of her head. Four saucers, two mugs, a knife, and coffee pot sit atop table. Drawing is on medium thick, smooth white wove paper.  There are very visible brush strokes across the drawing.

In this course, students will learn sketching and drawing as a means of effectively conceiving and communicating ideas and as an aid to project execution and visualization. Students will practice methods and techniques that promote a free flow of ideas from the brain to the paper (i.e. concept sketches, ideation drawings) as well as digital approaches to drawing, conceiving and realizing their ideas. Students will also explore ways of seeing and the languages of representation used within the art and design disciplines (i.e. orthographic, paraline, and perspective drawing systems).
