Art Room Interior

SCC Art recently came across this drawing left sitting on a table in the Art room. Sadly it must have been discarded at some point as there are two footprints on the drawing !  It depicts the area under the stairs; just a small section of the busy Art Room. In the middle of the drawing is a table and sitting on it is a printing press. On the right is one of three chests of drawers in the Art Room which house the pupils' work. Various other pieces of art hang on the stair railing and sit on top of the drawers. The drawers are also labelled with the names of current pupils .
This well observed drawing shows good understanding of space and perspective which is especially important when drawing interiors. The drawing is by Henry Roe in Form IV and is now hanging on the railing which he has drawn in the picture above.
