The Linden Tree:  Drawing   The main part of the exercise is the drawing, which teaches observation and translating those observations into representations on paper. Students learn to understand the similarities and differences amongst each of their classmates. Placement on the paper is also important, so the exercise serves as an introduction to composition. All of this is presented simply as drawing, so the lessons are absorbed naturally. This method reflects the teaching philosophy at Linden Tree Art classes: students learn by doing though exercises designed to introduce or reinforce a number of elements, the combination of which moves each student to a higher level of confidence and mastery.
