  19. 19. There are two types of texture: Tactile texture (real texture) is the way the surface of an object actually feels.  Examples of this include sandpaper, cotton balls, tree bark, etc. Implied texture is the way the surface of an object looks like it feels. The texture may look rough, fizzy, gritty, but cannot actually be felt. This type of texture is used by artists when drawing or painting.

  21. 21. • That which is perceived when light hits and reflects off an object. Three properties of color are Hue (name of a color), Intensity (strength of a color) and value (lightness or darkness of a color).
  22. 22. COLOR WHEEL
  23. 23. • Learning to mix colors is important. • Knowing the placement of colors on the color wheel will help you mix colors and help you decide which colors to add to your painting or drawing! • Your choice of color schemes can make a big difference in the success of your project. • Please review this PowerPoint Presentation that explains color theory in depth. http://www.ebps.net/14312062210393137/lib/14312062210393137/color.ppt
  24. 24. • The illusion of space is created through light and shadow. • There are two types of space: positive and negative space. Positive space refers to the actual subject matter in a work of art. Negative space refers to the space around and between the subject matter.
  25. 25. It is necessary to consider both positive and negative space when creating a composition. THEY ARE BOTH IMPORTANT! • M. C. Escher was able to create drawings where there was no distinction between positive and negative space. Here is an example.
  26. 26. refers to the lightness or darkness of a color. It gives objects depth and perception.
  27. 27. ASSIGNMENT • Make a new blog post titled “Elements of Art” • Give each element its own heading. (Example: “Shapes”) • Under each heading, give a definition for the element of art • Under each definition, place at least two pieces of art that you feel represent the element of art – For each piece, you must use the artist’s name, the piece’s name, the medium, and the year it was made
  28. 28. ASSIGNMENT SHAPE A shape is an area set apart by the other elements of art. It could be a star shape made from an enclosed line. It could be a squiggle made by erasing colored in area. There are two types of shapes. Organic, or natural shapes, aren’t perfect and don’t look man-made. Geometric shapes are perfect and seem like they’re made mechanically. Gabriel Orozco Kytes Tree Painting 2005
