Art elements for painting slideshow

  1. 1. BASIC ELEMENTS OF ART Line  Shape and Form  Color  Space  Value  Texture 
  2. 2. LINE “Lines are everywhere. You can see lines in the grain of a piece of wood or in the cracks on a sidewalk. Lines are used to create words, numbers, and symbols. They are also used to create art. In drawing, line is an element of art that is the path of a moving point through space.” -Arttalk, page 70
  3. 3. The four main kinds of lines are horizontal, vertical, curvy and zig zag.
  4. 4. Horizontal Lines Horizontal Lines are restful, peaceful, and stable. Very pleasant to the eye.
  5. 5. Horizontal Lines
  6. 6. Edward Hopper, Early Sunday Morning

  8. 8. Vertical Lines
  9. 9. Curvy Lines Curvy lines express rhythm and movement.
  10. 10. Zig Zag Lines Zig zag lines show excitement and action. They are very eye-catching.
  11. 11. SHAPE “All objects are either shapes or forms. Rocks, puddles, flowers, shirts, houses, chairs, and paintings are all shapes and forms.” -Arttalk, 98
  12. 12. FORM Shape is 2-dimensional. Form is 3-dimensional. Shape Form Circle Square Triangle Sphere Cube Pyramid or Cone
  13. 13. How are these shapes symbolic?
  14. 14. TEXTURE “Every surface has a texture. Texture is the element of art that refers to how things feel, or look as if they might feel if touched. Texture includes the slick, smooth surface of ice, the bumpy, rough surface of brick, and the prickly surface of a scrub brush.” -Arttalk, page 171
  15. 15. Texture can be Real
  16. 16. Impasto
  17. 17. Or it is Implied
  18. 18. Space Positive Space Negative Space Depth of Space Overlapping Placement Size difference
  19. 19. COLOR  Color has three aspects to its nature: • Hue • Intensity/Saturation • Value
  20. 20. Primary colors 1. HUE Secondary colors
  21. 21. Color Schemes Analogous Colors…colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, such as green and yellow green.
  22. 22. Complementary Colors…colors that are directly across from each other such as yellow and violet.
  23. 23. Monochromatic Colors…a color scheme that uses only one hue and black and white mixed with that one color to make tints, or values of that color.
  24. 24. WARM Colors
  25. 25. COOL Colors
  26. 26. 2. Intensity/ Saturation

  33. 33. RHYTHM AND MOVEMENT “Rhythm is the principle or art that indicates movement by the repetition of elements.” -Arttalk, page 200
  34. 34. BALANCE “A work of art must contain balance. Balance is the principle of art concerned with equalizing visual forces, or elements in a work of art.” -Arttalk, page 228
  35. 35. SIMPLE CONCEPT  Balance= Feels Right  Imbalance = Right Doesn’t Feel
