  2. Use cut/torn paper to construct a collage representing one of the following: a still life composition, or a landscape.
  3. Make a free-hand drawing of part of a room, which includes at least three pieces of furniture or three objects. Draw this view as realistically as possible, placing emphasis on shading and proportion.
