  • 1. The Visual Elements
  • 2.
    • When looking at works of art, you see different colors, values, lines, textures and shapes. You see countless ways artists combine and organize these elements so their ideas and feelings can be communicated and understood by viewers. Looking at works of art, however, doesn’t mean you “see” them. To fully understand a painting, a sculpture, or a building, you need to understand a visual vocabulary and recognize how it is used to produce successful works of art.
