This is a dark, black and white drawing of the interior of a room. In the foreground is a table with a white saucer, silverware, white mug, and glass on top. On the other side of the table is a chair. A smaller table is visible behind the chair in the background of the drawing with a white object on it.

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 are introduced to freehand drawing. Accurate representational drawing is emphasized through a series of projects concentrating on simple objects and the use of space. Students are introduced to and will discuss the central problems and issues of freehand drawing.The course is recommended as a beginning level course before other art courses at WCC are taken and for students who plan to transfer to another college or university.
