7 Elements of DesignInclude:lineshape/formspacetexturecolor
8 Lines Refer to the continuous mark made on a surface Are greater in length than widthIndicate directionCan be:verticalhorizontalcurveddiagonal
9 Lines Provide a visual path for the eye Establish the framework of the designCan reflect certain emotional qualities and convey a moodAre often more functional than decorative

13 Curved Lines Portray grace and youth Are more relaxed and informal Can make a design livelier
14 Shape Is two-dimensional Is geometric Is organic length width free-flowing
15 Form Is three-dimensional Describes the mass and volume of an object lengthwidthdepthDescribes the mass and volume of an objectCan be viewed from all angles
16 Space Is the total area a person can see Around a shape/form is called negative spaceCan create an illusion of depthFun Fact: Artists can create depth by using overlapping, diminishing scale, atmospheric perspective, vertical placement, warm and cool colors, diagonals and linear perspective.
17 White SpaceRefers to the unused portions of the page, wall, canvas, etc.Can also be called “negative space” or “blank space”Is the space between objectsKeeps the piece from appearing busy or clutteredFun Fact: White space does not have to be white.
