|Dear Carol: The definition of drawing is essentially a definition of the words "to draw" which mean: " to pull across or draw across a surface, usually paper, in order to create an image called a sketch or drawing." Drawing is considered to be the most intimate of artforms. The media with which one "draws" can be varied but usually includes traditional "drawing media" such as graphite, carbon pencils, chalks, conte, colour pencils and inks. Silverpoint and other metalpoints are drawing media as well. However, acrylics, oils, pastels, and watercolour can also be used to draw, but usually these are defined as "painting media."
