  • 1. 1. Visual elements of a image Objectives: • To understand and use visual elements of an image. • To create image and express oneself using and experimenting with the expressive characteristic of the point,the line, the surface and the texture. Evaluation: • Recognise visual elements • Use the visual elements that make up the language of painting, sculpture and architecture. • Use terms in writing and oral English that relate to the point, line , surface and texture.
  • 2. 1.1. The point and line • The straight line: suggest rigidity, precision and constancy. • Vertical: these are balanced between the sky (above) and teh ground (below). These express spirituality and elegance. • Inclined: these denote movement, decision and willingness. • Curved: these produce a feeling of movement action and dynamism. • Radial: these suggest light, explosion and luminosity. • Broken: these lines have a zigzag shape and sharply change of direction, transmit imbalance, chaos and lack of organization. • Concurrent: all the lines go towards a point or area of maximun attention. Concentric and spiral lines convey concentration.

  • 6. 1.2 Graphic qualities of the lines • Direction: every line works as a vector of direction. • Spatial distribution: lines separate planes and spaces, giving every surface different graphic qualities. • Volume: shadowing allows us to create a three dimensional volume in two-dimensional spaces. • Depth: on a surface the line gives a scene depth when it is placed on the diagonal. • Structure: lines organise the space.
  • 7. 1.1.b Lines make up images
  • 8. Activity • 1. Draw the contours of the object that appear in the model and the line that separates the vertical plane from the horizontal one. • 2. Paint the inner surface lines with lines of coloured pencils modulating the line (thicker and darker for more interesting features and thinner for areas of less importance)
