Hi Joshua,

There is a separate extension that should give you the picture language 
primitives you need.  See the PLT port of the picture language in the 
PLaNET package repository:


So in your own programs, the following s-expression:

     (require (planet "picture.ss" ("soegaard" "sicp" 1 0)))

should enable picture language support.

Best of wishes!
