    • Elements of Art and Principles of Design
    • Elements of Art The building blocks or ingredients of art. They structure and carry the work.
    • Elements of Art Line Color Value Shape Form Space Texture
    • LINE A mark with length and direction. A continuous mark made on a surface by a moving point. Pablo Picasso
    • LINE May be vertical, horizontal or diagonal, curved, straight, zigzag, or show emotion.
    • LINE
    • Contour lines- outline the edges of forms or shapes Gestural lines- indicate action and physical movement LINE
    • Consists of Hue (another word for color), Value (lightness or darkness) and Intensity (brightness). Henri Matisse Alexander Calder COLOR
    • Color has three properties: 1. HUE: this is the name of the colors 2. VALUE: refers to the lightness or darkness of a hue. 3. INTENSITY: refers to the purity of the hue (called “chroma”) COLOR
    • Neutral Colors These colors are made by adding a complimentary color (opposite on the color wheel) to a hue. Neutralized hues are called tones.
    • Tints – adding the color white to lighten a hue Shades – adding black to darken a hue Tints and Shades
    • Warm and Cool Colors Warm – red, orange, yellow Cool – green, blue, violet
    • The lightness or darkness of a color. MC Escher Pablo Picasso VALUE
    • High Range in Value Low Range in Value VALUE
    • An enclosed area defined and determined by other art elements; 2-dimensional. Joan Miro SHAPE
    • SHAPE Shapes can be geometric or organic. GEOMETRIC: square, triangle, rectangle, rhombus, circle, cone ORGANIC: free form shapes, shapes in nature; for example: leaves, trees, animals
    • Organic vs. Geometric SHAPE
    • A 3-dimensional object; or something in a 2- dimensional artwork that appears to be 3-dimensional. Jean Arp Lucien Freud
    • Shows an object in space, the mass or positive space it occupies. For example, a triangle, which is 2-dimensional, is a shape, but a pyramid, which is 3-dimensional, is a form.
    • Form can be 2D Form can be 3D
    • The distance or area between, around, above, below, or within things. Foreground, Middleground and Background (creates DEPTH) SPACE
    • Positive (filled with something) and Negative (empty areas) SPACE
    • The surface quality or "feel" of an object, its smoothness, roughness, softness, etc. TEXTURE
    • TEXTURE Textures may be actual or implied.
    • Actual – texture that you can feel with your sense of touch Implied – texture that has been simulated in drawing and painting on a smooth surface TEXTURE
    • You should now have 7 Elements of Art Cards to save in your Art Card Envelope!

    • Symmetrical Balance The parts of an image are organized so that one side mirrors the other.Leonardo DaVinci
    • Asymmetrical Balance When one side of a composition does not reflect the design of the other. James Whistler
