A simple example:


Generally, put the graphics primitives in a list (and use 
the correct brackets: in contrast to your example for Circle 
above), then enclose place this list in Graphics as an argument,
then display the result using Show.  Of course there is much more,
involving using options and more sophisticated graphics directives.
This example was for simple 2-D graphics, for 3-D graphics you need
to use Graphics3D, SurfaceGraphics,...  The basic reference
for all of thei is Tom Wickham-Jones's book "Mathematica Graphics",
but you can get up to speed with The Mathematica Book as well
as others.
