  • Give examples of shapes: circles, rectangles, squares, can be organic shapes that are irregular
  • Spheres, cubes, cones, odd like forms that are hard to describe are also generally organic
  • Elements and principles of art

    1. 1. Elements and Principles of Art Split Page Note Taking And beach ball review
    2. 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
    3. 3. Line  Lines lead your eye through the composition and define the edges of an object.  Lines can vary in size and direction. (vertical, horizontal, thick, thi n, etc), which helps communicate the image to the viewer.
    4. 4. Shape  Shapes help define a twodimensional object.  They can vary in height and width.  The ovals and rectangles describe the architectural details in this fresco painting.  Shapes can help define the lights and shadows.
    5. 5. Form  Form is very similar to shape, except it occupies threedimensional space.  It has width and height, but it also has depth.  The bean is a spherical-like form. You can see all around it.
    6. 6. Geometric vs. Organic shapes and forms
    7. 7. Space  In two -dimensional art, artists can give the illusion of space and depth with shading and perspective.  Positive Space and Negative
    8. 8. Color  Color is simply the light reflected off an object. It can bring excitement and life to a work of art.  Hue- actual color  Intensity- brightness or dullness  Value- lightness and darkness  The artist used light colors to describe the candle flame. The dark values give the work a sense of mystery.
    9. 9. Texture  Texture is the surface quality of an object.  Artists can convey texture on two dimensional and threedimensional works.  This artist using heavy blending of the brush to get the sense of smooth texture in the fabric.
    10. 10. Beach Ball- Formal Analysis Now that you know the elements of art, you can formally analyze and describe its parts. Describe how that artist used a certain element.
