					THE ELEMENTS OF ART
 AND PRINCIPLES OF
       DESIGN
THE ELEMENTS OF ART
• ARE THE BASIC VISUAL SYMBOLS IN THE
  LANGUAGE OF ART
         I. Line
         II. Value
         III. Shape, Form and Space
         IV. Color
         V. Texture

Symbols- visual images that stand for, or
  represent something else.
PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN
• ARE THE RULES THAT ORGANIZE
  ELEMENTS OF ART
        I. Rhythm and Movement
        II. Balance
        III. Proportion
        IV. Variety, Emphasis, and
             Unity
ELEMENTS OF ART
1.   LINE- (in drawing) is a mark drawn with a moving
     tool.
     A. Kinds of line
     B. Line variation
     C. What different lines express
     D. Contour drawing
     E. Gesture drawing
     F. Line and value
A. Kinds of Lines

   1. vertical line- straight up and down. No slant
   2. horizontal line- parallel to the horizon. No slant
   3. diagonal line- between vertical and horizontal
   lines. They slant
   4. curved lines- change direction gradually
   5. zigzag lines- made from a combination of
   diagonals
B. Line Variation
1.   Length- long or short
2.   Width- wide or thin
3.   Texture- rough or
     smooth
4.   Direction- can move
     in any direction
5.   Degree of curve-
     gradually, wavy, form
     spirals
C. What Different Lines Express
STATIC
• Vertical Lines- at rest, inactive, stability, dignity,
  stiffness, formality
• Horizontal Lines- peace, quiet, rest, stability, calm,
  inactive
ACTIVE
• Diagonal- instability, tension, activity, excitement,
  they can either be falling or rising
• Zigzag- extremely active, confusion, excitement,
  nervousness
• Curved- some activity, luxury, hypnotic, graceful
Line

• A line does not need to
  be connected to create
  the impression of a line.
  Implied Lines could also
  be to create images.
D. Contour Drawing
• Define edges and surface ridges of an object.
  A contour line creates a boundary separating
  one area from another.
Contour Drawings
E. Gesture Drawing
• A gesture is an
  expressive
  movement. The
  purpose of drawing
  gestures is to
  capture the feeling
  of motion. A
  gesture drawing is
  not a drawing of
  detail.
Gesture Drawings
II Value
• Value is the art
  element that refers
  to darkness or light.
  Value depends on
  how much light a
  surface reflects. A
  dark surface reflects
  little light and vice-
  versa.
Line and Value
• Crosshatching- the
  technique for using
  crossed lines for
  shading.
Line and value

• Stippling or pointillism
  could also be utilized for
  value
Line Project
• Using lines, we
  are going to make
  a random texture
  through
  numerous lines.
Line Project
• You will then scan
  your image and
  digitally apply a
  silhouette. A
  photo will then be
  printed.
