are the foundation of knowledge that will help you understand and create powerful drawings. The building blocks of art.
Line – a mark with length & width Hakuin Egon Schile Doze Green
Show emphasis or excitement Express different moods or energy The direction and width of a line can convey different meanings. –Vertical lines = strength –Horizontal lines = safety –Diagonal = instability What it can Do… Bridget Riley
Jacob Lawrence Takashi Murakami Shape – FLAT -two dimensional (2-D) enclosed space, length and width No depth
Flatten an image Simplify the subject What it can Do…
Value – the range of lights to darks Charles White
Value creates the illusion of form and depth Communicate meaning Or expression through contrast What it can Do… Georgia O’Keefe Chuck Close
Space- refers to the depth or distance between, around, above, below, and within things. Techniques for showing space
Positive and Negative Space can help you draw accurately Show the illusion of depth – real space What it can Do… Salvador Dali
Color – what the eye sees when light is reflected off of an object The most powerful element of art 2 general categories –Warm –Cool Color Wheel
Conveys a mood or expression, can imply depth What it can Do… Edward Hopper Alex Kats
Texture – Surface quality Actual Texture Implied Texture Henry Moore Vincent van Gogh
What it can Do… Texture – Adds convincing details - realism Slows down the viewer’s eye to look more carefully at the work Trenton Doyle
A system of organizing the element of art. The way the building blocks are arranged
Balance – equal distribution of weight between the parts of the image SYMMETRICAL ASYMMETRICAL SameDifferent Jim Dine Ramin Haerizadeh Start Wallowing Bull
Can make the viewer feel comfortable or uncomfortable with the image. What it can Do…
Movement – arrangement of elements that direct the viewers through the artwork
Leads the viewer’s eye to Important parts of the picture. What it can Do…
Captures attention Will make the viewer look at the image longer What it can Do…
Rhythm – regularly repeated visual unit that causes the eye to flow (like a musical beat).
– makes image easy to look at, can communicates different moods depending on the intensity of the design. Must include variety! What it can Do…
FOCAL POINT = the most important part of the art work- Where the view’s eye should rest. Composition! The way parts of a picture are arranged.
Rule of Thirds – system for placing the focal point –Always have a clear Focal Point –Create a path to the subject –Use an odd number –Vary the object size –Never divide the image in ½ –Place subjects to make a triangle
Patterns Patterns are interesting and pleasing to look at. Ideally, they should also set the scene and supply a visual context for the story.
Identification: List the elements and principles you see in this image. What is the focal point of the painting?
APPLY In a group - Create an example of a principle of design USING RANDOM TOOLS. 1 st identify the Element of art the tool represents. Consider the composition of the overall design and the focal point. You will present this to the class.
