Variety and Contrast Artists make their art work more exciting by adding Variety. They do this by using different colors, lines and shapes. Contrast is extreme variety and will make parts of an art work stand out.
Mexican Oaxacan Monster The eyes show contrast we notice them right away because they are larger than the other circles and the colors don’t appear in other places on the sculpture
In our Wild Thing Sculpture we will... Make our art work more exciting by adding Variety. We will use different colors, lines and shapes. We will also achieve unity by repeating some line shapes and colors.
Our wild thing sculpture will also be a box in which you can hide things.
