1Are the basic building blocks to create a work of art. Elements of ArtAre the basic building blocks to create a work of art.
2Line Is a continuous mark made on a surface by a moving point. It often creates an outline, defines a shape or space, or implies an edge of a shape or form.Types of Line=Vertical, Horizontal, diagonal, straight, curved, looped etc.
8ShapeIs an enclosed two-dimensional space that is defined by other art elements such as line, color, value and texture.Shapes have length and width.Can be geometric=uniform/perfect measurements & do not occur in nature: circle, square, triangleCan be organic=flowing & curving appearance/occur in nature like leaves, rocks, shells
13FormIs a three-dimensional space that has length, width, and depth and encloses volume.Real form only exists in three- dimensional.Artists can create the illusion of form on a 2-D surface by using other elements like value and texture.
21Value Value refers to lightness or darkness. Value is often described by a scale consisting of shades of gray; usually ranging from white to middle grays to black.It can also refer to the lightness or darkness of a color.
27Texture Texture refers to surface quality or feel of an object. Actual texture can be touched and felt.Simulated/Visual texture is the ILLUSION or appearance of actual texture.Types of texture=smooth, rough, soft, furry, shiny etc.
33ColorA visual sensation caused by the way an object reflects or emits light. Color is defined by three properties: hue, value, and intensity.HUE-another name for colorVALUE-lightness or darkness of a colorINTENSITY-brightness or dullness of a color; purity or strength of a color
53PROPORTIONThe relationship of one part of a work of art compared to another part or to the whole work.It can refer to size, quantity, or degree.The proportion of one part of an artwork to another part may suggest emphasis.
61VARIETYA quality achieved through the use of diversity and change by artists who wish to increase visual interest in their work.An artwork that makes use of many different colors, values, lines, textures, and/or shapes that show variety.
69WHY did I learn all of this? The elements AND principles of art help you, as a young artist, interpret and really look at artworks!They allow you to really look at the details in a piece of artwork.They help you understand what the artist is trying to communicate to the viewer!
