This work in graphite and watercolor on off-white wove paper is vertically oriented. There are six standing male figures portrayed in uniforms. Only the second and third men from the left are colored in, the four others are rendered with graphite outlines. The men wear military jackets with belts, trousers, and black shoes with tall, white spats. Their hats have brass emblems and tipped up bills. The largest man who was been colored in has a blue sash over his gray uniform and holds a rifle at his side. There is a pale blue rectangular border around the men with the artist’s name in the bottom center.

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.

This is the first of two foundation drawing studio courses that introduce students to a basic skill at the core of the creative process. It promotes respect for perceptive seeing and visual thinking, and promotes its practice as a matter of intellectual and psychological inquiry leading to levels of invention commensurate with an individual’s developing sense of the world. This first semester affirms the role the human hand has established in effecting the convergence between thought and making and prepares students to consider more technologically mediated approaches as their practice matures. A variety of drawing media and processes will be employed to achieve confident and intelligently articulated visual responses.
