Principles of Design Principles of Design Presentation Transcript

  • Principles of Design BALANCE, UNITY, EMPHASIS, MOVEMENT, RHYTHM, CONTRAST, PROPORTION
  • Making a design is like making a cake. The Elements are the ingredients. The directions for mixing them together are the Principles . Organization of elements that work together to give unity Principles of Design
    • Asymmetrical - (informal balance) the two sides of a work of art are not exactly the same, but are still visually balanced
    Balance The way the elements of art are arranged to create a feeling of stability
  • Symmetrical Balance:
    • (formal balance) parts on both sides are the same
  • Radial Balance parts radiate from the center in all direction
    • All Parts of a work of art are interrelated, balanced, and organized to achieve a quality of oneness
    Unity
    • This can either be actual motion or it can be implied — the arrangement of the parts of an image to create a sense of motion by using lines , shapes , forms , and textures that cause the eye to move over the work
    Movement
  • Movement Linear strokes cause our eye to move back and forth through the painting.
  • Emphasis
    • Accent, stress, or importance placed on a part of a piece of artwork
    • (repeating an idea creates emphasis)
    Emphasis
    • The focus of the lady brings our attention to the envelope as well as its stark white color.
    Emphasis
    • Regular repetition of lines, shapes, or colors that create a movement. Patterns have rhythm
    Rhythm
  • Rhythm Repetition of the figure descending the staircase not only creates movement but rhythm as well
    • a difference between objects
    Contrast
    • relationship of one part to another or to the whole with respect to size , quantity, or degree; a ratio
    Proportion
  • BALANCE, UNITY, EMPHASIS, MOVEMENT, RHYTHM, CONTRAST, PROPORTION Can you use the principles of design to critique this artwork? Sandy Skoglund: Radioactive Cats , 1980
