A. Actual - Fully drawn lines or

Implied - Lines that are ‘hinted’ at

B. Directional

Lines create planes; planes suggest volume


Color
Color

I. produced when light, striking an object, is reflected back to the eye.

II. All hues on the color spectrum, even hues not on the spectrum such as black and white.

A. Hue - the name we give to a color (red, yellow, etc.).


B. Intensity - the strength and vividness of the color. Describe the color blue as (bright, rich, vibrant) or "dull" (grayed).

B. Shade - when black is added to a pure hue

C. Tone – when white AND black are added to a color


Shape
Shape

A. Space that is contained within edges

B. Organic-irregular – An irregular 2D enclosed area, like that which might be found in nature.

B. Geometric-has a strict

pattern – 2D enclosed area

created by exact mathematical law.




Form

A. A 3D space

B. Organic – An irregular 3D enclosed area, like that which might be found in nature.

C. Geometric– 3D enclosed area that has a strict pattern



Volume

Implied in painting; actual in sculpture



Space
Space

A. The appearance of depth in art

B. Actual – the real distance between or around areas or components within of a piece.

C. Implied/illusionary - the appearance of space or depth within a work of art.

D. Positive – Solid areas or objects

E. Negative – ‘air’ around solid objects, space where other things are not present



Principles
Principles

  • Balance

  • Movement

  • Emphasis

  • Pattern (repetition)

  • Unity (compare)

  • Variety (contrast)

  • Rhythm


Balance
Balance

the ways in which the elements (lines, shapes, etc.) of a piece are arranged

Symmetrical - elements are given equal "weight" from an imaginary line in the middle of a piece.

Near symmetry- same weight…not the same stuff.

Asymmetrical - occurs when elements are placed unevenly in a piece, but work together to produce harmony overall.



Movement
Movement symmetrical, or asymmetrical?

a visual flow through the composition as you move from object to object by way of placement and position

Actual – an object that has true motion.

Implied - the suggestion of motion in a design.

  • What stands out in the art and what draws the viewer’s attention in.


Pattern repetition
Pattern(Repetition) symmetrical, or asymmetrical?

the repetition of an element (or elements) in a work


Unity compare
Unity(Compare) symmetrical, or asymmetrical?

  • How an artworks are similar or alike or how they go together.


Variety contrast
Variety(Contrast) symmetrical, or asymmetrical?

  • How things are different. This creates visual interest.

    High contrast= VERY different

    Low contrast= a little different


Rhythm
Rhythm symmetrical, or asymmetrical?

  • Rhythm, in art, is a visual beat.
