                        Op Art Hands-

                        Use the downloaded word document as a reference so that you can practice drawing a hand in the style of "Op Art".  Your drawing does not have to be in colored pencil.  It can be drawn with a regular (non-colored) pencil.  You may not trace your hand and practice shading so that your hand looks 3D.  Use the attached document as a reference.  You do not have to draw in detail that is shown in the example because there is limited time.  

                        One Point Perspective Drawing-

                        Attached is a word document that will give you step by step directions on how to draw in One Point Perspective.  This is the same method that you used for your Perspective Project.  You will need to know: how to draw buildings, a road, a distinct vanishing point, and a horizon line.  You do not have to draw a-lot of detail for this portion of the test, just the items that you are asked to draw which are listed above.  

                        An additional word document is attached that will give you the definitions for all of the terms that you need to know.  This portion of the test is true/false.  

                        Practice shading so that you can show a transition from dark to light.  

                        You should be well equipped to take the exam.  Have fun practicing!

                        YOU MUST BRING A PENCIL TO USE (IT CANNOT BE MECHANICAL)
