The Linden Tree:  Drawing   Composition drawing in charcoal, by 10-year-old Kevin. The assignment was to pick three objects from our collection, arrange them in a good composition and draw them, first using light lines to indicate the entire sape of the composition. This student, always one to challenge himself, chose nine objects. Notice the light lines at the top and sides which established the boundaries of the composition. We stress getting the overall placement and shape right first, then defining the various elements.
