Include the title, medium, and year created. Do this drawing in your sketchbook.  Use the art medium of your choice.  Suggested mediums could include: chalk pastels, watercolor, pen and ink, pencil or colored pencil.  Incorporate value and shade in your work at a minimum.  Spend a total of one hour on your drawing
