Drawing as we know is a form of visual communication.
Drawing is making marks.
Drawing is your handwriting, the way you form your letters and the way you compose those letters on a page.
Drawing is decision making which, is also thinking. Whether it is working from observation or scribbling in your note book, whether it is writing a poem or a letter or a paper, you are making decisions with each line, angle and curve you make. Drawing may be the basis of making art and it may be looked at as a basis for thought.
Drawing is a sign of intelligence.
Drawing is a way of controlling something, like composing is arranging or ordering.
Drawing is fundamental to being human as it starts at a very early age.
Drawing is saying, "here I am."
