Make sure you are typing using above the namespace tag?

using System.Drawing;

namespace EE.Questions.C#

Which project are you trying to type using in? web /windows/ services ??

I am typing above the namespace.. and all of the other namespaces are working fine...

I'm not sure what you mean by your question.. I'm writing a windows program..

when I type using system.    why would drawing not show up in the list of choices?
Try adding System.Drawing into the references
