All self-respecting Yale students should take Basic Drawing

“…It might be true that no self-respecting Yale student should graduate without taking Basic Drawing: because an art course offers an entirely different way of understanding fellow students. Your opinion of them and their abilities derives not from perceptions of easy outward shows, like comments about the reading, but from the work they make in private, or silently in class. To confront an expression of vast, complex interiority from someone of whom you did not expect it is a necessary lesson.”
