2  Unity  Variety  Emphasis  Rhythm  Movement  Balance  Pattern  Proportion

3  Unity in an artwork occurs when all elements work together to communicate ideas or feelings.  Unity is affected by Proximity (creating groups of objects) Similarity (making objects or things similar to one another) Continuation (creating a flow of vision from one object to another)



6  Variety safeguards against too much of the same thing.  A composition can be unified, but uninteresting due to a lack of variety.  To avoid monotony, artists include different variations of elements to make the work interesting.



9  Emphasis the element or form that is the focal point of interest in a composition.



12  On your paper, draw a rectangle at least 3 inches long. Now draw 5 different shapes, but make one shape the emphasis. What and how did you do it?

13  Three methods for creating rhythm 1. By repeating the same element such as a shape or a figure 2. By repeating two more elements on an alternating basis such as circle/square, circle/square; or 3. By progression, in which an element gradually changes shape, size, position, or color

14 John Biggers





19  This concentrates with the illusion of movement that was made popular in the Op Art movement. These artist created art work that was graphically based that created a visual movement.




23  Balance in art refers to the visual weight of an artwork.  4 types of balance: Asymmetrical: Symmetrical Approximate symmetry Radial Symmetry



26 Patterns are the result from the repetition of elements or a combination of elements in a recognizable organization over the surface of an area or form.



29 Proportion is the size relationship of parts to one another as a whole.



32  What is achieved by introducing differences in the elements of a composition?  What occurs when the visual weight in an artwork feels equally distributed?

33  What is achieved when an artwork and all its elements work together to communicate ideas or feelings?  What type of balance is used when elements are used equally on all sides?

34  What occurs when one element in an artwork, or a combination of elements, attracts more attention than anything else in the composition?  What principle of design suggests that things or objects are in motion or implied that they are in motion?

35  What refers to the relative size of one part of a work to the other?  What is created when specific elements (line or shape) are repeated or used in a certain progression.
