  • ART ELEMENTS
  • LINE: A CONTINUOUS MARK MADE ON A SURFACE BY A MOVING POINT; IT MAY BE FLAT (PENCIL LINE) OR THREEDIMENSIONAL (A ROD, GROOVE, RIDGE, ETC.)
  • SHAPE: AN ENCLOSED SPACE DEFINED BY A LINE OR BY CONTRAST TO ITS SURROUNDINGS. SHAPES ARE TWO-DIMENSIONAL (FLAT): CIRCLE, SQUARE, TRIANGLE, ORGANIC BLOB, ETC.
  • FORM: A THREE-DIMENSIONAL OBJECT: A DEFINED VOLUME OF SPACE. FORMS CAN ALSO BE CATEGORIZED AS GEOMETRIC OR ORGANIC IN NATURE.
  • TEXTURE: THE TACTILE SENSATION OR FEEL OF A SURFACE (ROUGH, SMOOTH, SPIKY, ET C.) OR HOW SOMETHING APPEARS TO FEEL.
  • VALUE: HOW LIGHT OR DARK AN OBJECT OR ELEMENT IS, INDEPENDENT OF ITS COLOR. SHADING USES VALUE TO DEPICT LIGHT AND SHADOW AND SHOW VOLUME/FORM.
  • COLOR: THE VISIBLE SPECTRUM OF RADIATION REFLECTED FROM AN OBJECT. THREE PROPERTIES OF COLOR ARE: • HUE – THE NAME OF THE COLOR (RED, GREEN, ETC.) • INTENSITY OR SATURATION – THE PURITY (BRIGHTNESS OR DULLNESS) OF THE COLOR. PURE RED IS BRIGHT; RED MIXED WITH A LITTLE GREEN BECOMES LESS INTENSE, MORE NEUTRAL. • VALUE OR BRIGHTNESS – THE LIGHTNESS OR DARKNESS OF A COLOR. HOW MUCH WHITE OR BLACK SHOWS THROUGH OR IS MIXED IN. CAN BE USED TO DEPICT LIGHT AND SHADOW ON A COLOR AND HELP SHOW VOLUME/FORM.
  • SPACE: THE DISTANCE OR AREA AROUND OR BETWEEN ELEMENTS OF AN ARTWORK. THE ILLUSION OF DEPTH CREATED ON A FLAT SURFACE THROUGH THE USE OF LINEAR PERSPECTIVE, OVERLAPPING ELEMENTS, SIZE, LEVEL OF DETAIL, COLOR AND VALUE.
