    Assignment 1: Try drawing something in your house.  It can be a soda can, a vase with flowers, or your shoe!   Take your time, look at the outline of the object and draw that lightly first, make changes, erase until you are pretty happy with it. Now lightly draw the details, again erase and draw until you are happy with it. These steps could take an hour or more to do!  Next start adding some value. Value when talking about creating art is what people always call shading.  It is shading as well as the light areas and medium shades combined to show the detail.  Have fun, you can even work on one drawing for an hour or two, then come back to it if you get frustrated, but don't give up!
