Mark gave us our first assignment Sunday night: to draw a towel. 

I went for a simple approach, drawing the outline of the towel and adding the detail of the fabric stitching. 

In Studio the next morning, we were divided into two groups to arrange our towels into a wall presentation. 

We organized the drawings by how neatly folded or crumpled the towels were. At the last minute I had the idea to write TOWEL with the string they had given us. 
We finished just in time and then sat down while Mark and the TAs evaluated our work. 


Monday night we were assigned to draw another towel using what we had learned in our drawing lesson. Here's my second towel:
  Honestly, I was surprised by how realistic my towel looked. Something about the beachy air and architectural surroundings is bringing out the artist in me!
