What are Elements of ART? Shape Texture Line Color Space Value Form
LINE The path of a moving point on a flat surface Can outline an object A line is longer than it is wider It can have movement and indicate a certain direction Types of lines: zigzag, horizontal, vertical, curved, diagonal, straight, angular, and implied.
LINES LINES LINES! NAME WHAT THESE LINES ARE!
SHAPE A two dimensional area created by connecting the lines to make an object They can be positive or negative shapes They can be biomorphic or abstract, and geometric like a triangle, square, and or circle Shapes vary by their color, texture, and or value
CHECK OUT THESE FUN SHAPES NAME THEM ALL!!
FORM This is a three-dimensional shape It has volume, dimension and mass Forms can be geometric or metamorphic They are generally used to sculpt and create
GEOMETRIC or METAMORPHIC? NAME THE FORM IF YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS!
VALUE A variation of lights and darks Can start out light and get dark or vise versa You can create shadows by using value
Let’s pick out the VALUES!
COLOR Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. ROYGBIV!! It can identify an object, create, provoke or convey emotions and moods. There are warm and cool colors There are primary (RED, YELLOW, BLUE) secondary (PURPLE, GREEN, ORANGE)intermediate, analogous, and complementary
WARM or COOL? NAME PRIMARY AND OR SECONDARR COLORS!
TEXTURE Rough, smooth, rugged, grainy, slippery, calloused, sticky…these are just a few of the abundant possibilities of surface texture
What kind of TEXTURE is this?
SPACE Can be limited like the confines of a closet. It can be extensive like outer space or shallow like a pond. It can also be as deep as the Ocean. Two-Dimensional space has height and width Three-Dimensional space has height, width, time and volume. Perspective comes into play with space especially when you want to create depth and distance in a drawing or painting.
WHAT KIND OF SPACES DO YOU SEE? DO THESE PICTURES TAKE OF SPACE? Shallow, Deep, Two-Dimensional, or Three-Dimensional?!
