    • 2. What are the elements and principles?  The elements and principles are the building blocks used to create all types of art.  They are the components in an artwork that can be isolated and defined.  Art Elements: Line, Shape, Form, Space, Color, Texture  Design Elements: Balance, Proportion, Rhythm, Emphasis, Unity, Mov ement, Pattern, Repetition, Variety
