 "Everybody's Junk Drawer"

I think every household has a
"junk drawer" - that drawer that's filled with all the "stuff" no one knows what to do with. Open the drawer, don't move anything, and draw what you see as a modified contour drawing.
--Do the drawing very lightly in pencil- no black marker
--You can make the drawing
in a 7" x 9" rectangle.
--Don't be obsessed with realism! Let the drawing be loose! Fill the page! (or the rectangle.)

*Teaching points: contour (modified), observation, composition
