When we first selected a pen or pencil and began to make marks on paper, we started with line. Whether self-instructed, through analysis, or escorted by others, we gained knowledge as how line explains form, builds up structure, separates a frame, finds contour, builds up tonal variation and shows the eye from one part of a work to another. Firstly a mechanism for getting outlines onto paper and recognizing the edges, we start to hear it for lines for their own merit: celebrate their existence whether a quiet jerk of charcoal on paper or a line of graphite. This comprises of exercises for Art students who desire to create contour line drawings, cross contour drawings, blind drawings and other kinds of line drawings.
