Drawing provides a common ground for communication, it offers us a dialogue with ourselves and with others…it engages us on vital emotional, intellectual, and spiritual levels…Drawing is as intimate as a hushed conversation, it is as personal as the artists touch and as revelatory as an artist signature. It extends both mind and spirit; it is an exciting activity that promotes a deep respect for looking and thinking. It has been called the most delectable of all the arts.
