Element of Art - Shape

  1. 1. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF SHAPE Geometric: These are the shapes you recognize and know names for. They have exact measurements and are not frequently seen in nature. You may recognize these from math class as well. Organic: These are also known as “free- form” They are unpredictable and flowing in appearance. Many of these shapes are found in nature like the shape of a leaf or the outline of a tree.
