Shape vs. Form
Form

• 3D
• Take up space or give the illusion of taking
  up space in a 2D work
When an artist views a sculpture or
piece of pottery, 3-dimensional art,
they need to view it from all sides. If
one were to view it just from the
front, a lot of expression and detail
would be missed.
Color

        Elements of Art Mona Lisa
•   COLOR
•   The original Mona Lisa (La Giocanda) was painted by Leonardo DaVinci. It
•   presently hangs in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. Mona Lisa is
    probably
•   the most widely recognized work of art. Some people say that it is her
    mysterious
•   smile that makes her so unique. Other people say that no matter where you
    are in
•   the room, the eyes always seem to follow you. We do know that Leonardo
    worked
•   on this oil painting for four years before he considered it done. It is only 30
    inches
•   by 21 inches. The painting was stolen from the museum and was missing
    for
•   three years. During that time, hundreds of forgeries appeared on the world
•   market.
