Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Gesture drawing is:

    • A.

      A quick way to capture movement of a person.

    • B.

      An expressive way to paint a portrait.

    • C.

      Hand-edge lines that exaggerate a figure.

    • D.

      A way to show real texture that can be perceived through touch

    Correct Answer
    A. A quick way to capture movement of a person.
    Explanation
    Gesture drawing is a technique used by artists to quickly capture the movement and essence of a person or object. It involves using loose and fluid lines to convey the energy and motion of the subject, rather than focusing on details or realism. By quickly sketching the basic shapes and forms, artists can capture the overall gesture and create a sense of movement and life in their artwork. This technique is often used in figure drawing to study and understand the dynamics of the human body in motion.

    One way to arrange forms to create 3-dimensions is to:

    • A.

      Draw dark forms at the top of the picture.

    • B.

      Use lines and forms on an angle.

    • C.

      Overlap forms in front of each other.

    • D.

      Draw the round forms at the bottom and the pointed forms at the top ov the picture.

    Correct Answer
    C. Overlap forms in front of each other.
    Explanation
    To create 3-dimensional objects, overlapping forms in front of each other is a useful technique. This helps to give the illusion of depth and adds a sense of perspective to the picture. By overlapping the forms, it creates a sense of one object being in front of another, which is a key characteristic of three-dimensional space. This technique allows the viewer to perceive the objects as having depth and occupying different positions within the picture.

    Different types of lines are:

    • A.

      Contour, dense, diagonal, emphasis.

    • B.

      Curved, straight, zigzag, obstacle.

    • C.

      Formal, hard-edge, horizontal, natural

    • D.

      Sketch, scribble, crosshatch, vertical

    Correct Answer
    B. Curved, straight, zigzag, obstacle.
    Explanation
    The given answer lists different types of lines, including curved, straight, zigzag, and obstacle. These types of lines are commonly used in art and design to create different effects and convey various emotions or messages. Curved lines can add a sense of fluidity and grace, while straight lines can suggest stability and order. Zigzag lines can create a sense of energy or movement, and obstacle lines can represent barriers or challenges. Each type of line has its own unique characteristics and can be used strategically to enhance visual compositions.

    The height from which the viewer sees the scene is the:

    • A.

      Vanishing point.

    • B.

      One-point perspective.

    • C.

      High and low placement.

    • D.

      Horizon line.

    Correct Answer
    D. Horizon line.
    Explanation
    The horizon line refers to the horizontal line that separates the sky from the ground or other elements in a scene. It represents the viewer's eye level or the height from which the viewer sees the scene. The other options, such as vanishing point, one-point perspective, and high and low placement, are not directly related to the viewer's height but rather to the perspective or placement of objects within the scene.

    Changeover lines are lines that:

    • A.

      You draw close together around an obstacle such as a letter.

    • B.

      Cross over a picture to change it into a positive/negative abstract art.

    • C.

      Go to the vanishing point to create a perspective drawing.

    • D.

      You draw to correct your drawing after you erase a mistake.

    Correct Answer
    B. Cross over a picture to change it into a positive/negative abstract art.
  • 6. 

    The horizontal line with one vanishing point on it and where all lines converge is called:

    • A.

      One-point perspective.

    • B.

      Linear perspective

    • C.

      Two-point perspective

    • D.

      High and low placement

    Correct Answer
    A. One-point perspective.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is one-point perspective. In one-point perspective, all lines in the scene converge at a single vanishing point on the horizon line. This technique is commonly used in art and design to create the illusion of depth and distance in a two-dimensional space. It is often used to depict objects or scenes from a frontal or direct viewpoint.

    You drew circles, squares, cones, and cubes.  One way to change these forms from 2-dimensions to 3-dimensions is to:

    • A.

      Stack the forms on top of each other.

    • B.

      Draw a circle, square, and triangle and color them different colors.

    • C.

      Create a light source and shade the forms from light to dark.

    • D.

      Put forms above and below the horizon line.

    Correct Answer
    C. Create a light source and shade the forms from light to dark.

    What media can you use to create a drawing?

    • A.

      Pencil, tempera paint, or crayon

    • B.

      Pencil, charcoal, pen, or ink

    • C.

      Crayon, colored pencil, or clay

    • D.

      Yarn, watercolor paint, or markers

    Correct Answer
    B. Pencil, charcoal, pen, or ink
    Explanation
    Pencil, charcoal, pen, and ink are all commonly used media to create drawings. These materials allow for different levels of detail, shading, and line variation, making them suitable for various drawing techniques and styles.

    Objects placed lower on the page to create the illusion of depth:

    • A.

      Make the objects look closer.

    • B.

      Make the objects look lighter.

    • C.

      Make the objects look heavier.

    • D.

      Make the objects look smaller.

    Correct Answer
    A. Make the objects look closer.
    Explanation
    When objects are placed lower on the page, it creates the illusion of depth by making them appear closer to the viewer. This is because we perceive objects that are positioned lower as being closer to us, while objects placed higher on the page appear farther away. Therefore, placing objects lower on the page gives the impression that they are closer in proximity.

    Contour drawing refers to:

    • A.

      The lines and crosshatching used to draw.

    • B.

      Hard-edge lines that exaggerate a figure.

    • C.

      Implied lines that the viewer's eyes connect to form shapes.

    • D.

      The outside edges, as well as the defined enclosed edges of a person, object, or mass.

    Correct Answer
    D. The outside edges, as well as the defined enclosed edges of a person, object, or mass.
    Explanation
    Contour drawing refers to the technique of drawing the outer edges of a person, object, or mass, as well as the defined enclosed edges. It involves carefully observing and tracing the visible contours, without shading or adding any details. This technique helps to define the shape and form of the subject, capturing its overall structure and outline. By focusing on the outside and enclosed edges, contour drawing creates a simplified representation that emphasizes the fundamental shapes and proportions.
