Lines Make Shapes Straight Shapes Straight Lines will create Straight Shapes

Types of Shapes Geometric and Organic 2 Basic Types of Shapes Joan Miro’

Basic geometric shapes include; circle oval square rectangle triangle diamond Geometric Shapes

Geometric shapes can be measured and calculated mathematically. In art class we can use rulers, compasses, and templates to create perfect geometric shapes… …or you can just do your best to create your geometric shapes free hand. Either way will be acceptable.

A short demonstration on How to Draw 3-D Forms

MIND MAP OF ELEMENTS Now add FORM to your Mind Map of Elements.

Expressive Lines Resist We will now start an art piece using oil pastels and watercolor paint.

Pass Out Ticket Compare the Shapes and Forms: How did the objects change when shading was added? Which are the more interesting: shapes or forms? Can a combination of each be used?
