Well you could either literally create a canvas and use drawing commands (very overkill) or you could just do the normal thing and get JPEG or whatever of what you want and toss it in a PictureBox control.  The 2nd option is usually much better becuase you can get much better images than you could ever draw on canvas with the C# drawing tools.

Can you tell us what you are trying to do?

Here is a user control that draws this arrow.
   public partial class ArrowControl : UserControl
    {
        public ArrowControl()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            SetStyle(ControlStyles.AllPaintingInWmPaint, true);
            SetStyle(ControlStyles.UserPaint, true);
            SetStyle(ControlStyles.OptimizedDoubleBuffer, true);
        }

        protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
        {
                base.OnPaint(e);

                GraphicsPath path = new GraphicsPath();
                List<Point> pnts = new List<Point>();
                pnts.Add(new Point((int)(0), (int)(0)));
                pnts.Add(new Point((int)(this.Width), (int)(.50f * this.Height)));
                pnts.Add(new Point((int)(0), (int)(this.Height)));

                path.AddLines(pnts.ToArray());
                path.StartFigure();

                e.Graphics.DrawPath(Pens.Black, path);
        }
    }
