1 The “building blocks” of a composition.
Elements of ART The “building blocks” of a composition.

2 Line continuous mark made on a surface by a moving point
Types of Line: Contour Outline Implied

3 Contour

4 Outline

5 Implied Line: Lines that may not have been actually drawn, but that the composition of the work makes it appear that they are there.

6 Implied Line

7 Shape an enclosed space defined by other elements of art
Types of Shape: Geometric Organic

8 Form A “shape” that is three-dimensional and encloses volume (value makes this possible).

9 Space refers to the distance or area between, around, above or within things. Types of Space: Positive Negative

10 Positive Negative Space Space
The space that is “filled in” in an artwork. I.E. The part that has been drawn, painted, sculpted, etc… The “empty space” or “empty void”. The space that is ‘left over’ or not filled in.

11 Color element of art that is produced when light, striking an object, is reflected back to the eye. Three parts of color: Hue Intensity Value

12 Hue simply means the name we give to a color (red, yellow, blue, etc.)

13 Intensity the strength and vividness of the color
(uses words such as vivid, dull, bright, etc…

14 Value describes the lightness or darkness of a color.
This is the key to making form – or objects that appear 3D

15 Texture refers to the surface quality or "feel" of an object
Types of Texture: Actual Implied

16 Actual Texture vs. Implied Texture
These textures use the sense of touch and can actually be felt. Example: Touching the bark of a tree – I know it’s rough b/c I felt it. These textures use the sense of sight and cannot actually be felt. We know what it should look at from the way it looks. Example: Looking at a picture of tree bark – I know it’s rough, but I can’t feel it by rubbing a picture.
