1. Draw 3 cubes (1 on each page) in single point perspective. 1 cube ABOVE the horizon line, one cube BELOW the horizon line and one cube ON the horizon line
2.  Make sure the vanishing point (VP or "X") is either to the RIGHT or the LEFT of the cube (not directly on or centered above/below it)
3. Draw one cube per page (use the back of your notes and the front and back of each page.
4. Make your cubes about the size of a baseball.

HOW DO I DRAW A CUBE IN SP PERSPECTIVE???
(By following these 5 simple directions!)
1.    Draw a square using right angles. 
        HINT:  You can make sure your square has right angles by lining up the mechanical edge of  your ruler with the mechanical edge of your paper. VOILA! A straight line!
2. Put the VP to the left or the right on the horizon line. NOT THE CENTER!
3. Connect ALL CORNERS to the VP
4. Put the back of the box on by giving the front square a twin brother (ie another square behind the original square. ) 
5. Erase non-essential lines

THE RULES

Always turn in your notes with your homework
ALL verticals stay vertical all the time!
Always keep your VP.
Lines from the corners of the square go to the CENTER of the VP.
Lines that are "behind" the cube must be indicated by "dotted" lines.
