  18. 18. Time & Motion
  19. 19. Chance/Improvisation Spontaneity
  20. 20. Engaging the Senses
  21. 21. Practice • See if you can identify the following in the next slides: 1. Abstract, representational, or non-objective? 2. How many art elements can you identify in the art? 3. what is the most dominant art element in the art work?
  22. 22. Principles of Composition Putting the Ingredients Together!
  23. 23. Composition • the placement or arrangement of visual elements or ingredients in a work of art. • The result of how you put together all the “ingredients”.
  24. 24. Balance • Placing elements so that visual weights seem evenly distributed.
  25. 25. Symmetrical Balance
  26. 26. Asymmetrical Balance
  27. 27. Can you see how this image is asymmetrically balanced? •Figure to the left of the composition •The figure and the white of the dress dominate the canvas, yet the bright colors of the vases on the right and the flowers coming in on lower right help to balance the picture. •The woman and the placement of her arms are also helping to balance the painting. •Also her reflection is part of that visual balance.
  28. 28. Radial Balance
  29. 29. Emphasis & Focal Point • emphasis • focal point
  30. 30. Scale & Proportion • size • Proportion. The size relationship of parts to the whole.
  31. 31. Repetition & Rhythm
  32. 32. Unity & Variety • Variety:differences by contrasting, changing elements in a composition to add interest. • Unity: bringing the elements of art into a sense of oneness.
  33. 33. Practice 1. Identify the main principles of design that are most dominant in the following slides of art. 2. And what art elements do they use?
  34. 34. Structural Systems in Architecture • Traditional Building Methods: load bearing construction: all areas of the walls support the structure above them
