Transcript of Elements & Principles of Design

The Elements
& Principles
of Design

The Elements of Design:
The Principles of Design:
The shortest distance between two points
A mark that has length and direction
Implied line: not actually drawn, but suggested by parts of an image or sculpture, such as a path of footprints or ants marching to a picnic basket.
2-Dimensional object that has height and length.
: precise, regular, math shapes
: irregular, often curved, occurring in nature
3-Dimensional object that has height, width and depth.
Actually light waves that are absorbed or reflected by the environment.
Primary Colors
Secondary Colors
Intermediate/ Tertiary Colors
= a Primary + a Secondary
Monochromatic = a range of values of one color
Analogous = colors that are next to each other on the color wheel
Ex. red, red-orange & orange
Complimentary = colors that are across from each other on the color wheel
Ex. green & red
Split Complimentary = a color, and the two colors on either side of its compliment.
Ex. Violet with yellow-green and yellow-orange
The lightness or darkness of a color
Tint: Adding white to a color to make it lighter
Shade: Adding black to a color to make it darker
Positive Space: space that is filled by a shape or form
Negative Space: space that surrounds the shape or form
The way something feels or looks as though it might feel
Actual Texture/ Real Texture: the way something feels when you touch it
Implied Texture: the way something looks as though it may feel in a 2-dimensional artwork.
when objects seem to be moving in a visual image.
can be created using diagonal lines, change in darkness or lightness, overlapping shapes, or a series of frames (like in a comic strip).
differences in objects that make an image more interesting
the repetition of a similar shape, or set of shapes.
the way the elements are arranged to create a sense of stability in an artwork.
the focal point of an image, or when one area or object stands out the most
a regular repetition of elements to produce the look and/or feel of movement
when all of the elements and principles work together to create a pleasing image
No individual part is viewed as more important than the whole design.
the relationship between one part of an image in comparison to another part of an image
When one side of an image mirrors the other
When one side of an image does not mirror the other
when parts of an image are arranged around one central point
Planned pattern- elements repeat in a regular or expected way, such as fabric for a shirt
Random pattern- one that happens by chance such as freckles on a child's face
the building blocks, or ingredients, of art.
the tools that artists use to organize a work of art
Sketchbook Tips

Come in to class quickly and quietly and start on your sponge.
For every sponge write: sponge #, date, and question in
Do your sponge daily, following all instructions.
Do your sponges in order without skipping pages.
Write and draw neatly keeping in mind craftsmanship.
If you don’t finish your sponge, either finish it when you have finished your class work or do it for homework.
If you are absent, write sponge #, date and Absent
Please take out your sketchbook and supply bin. Then, on the inside cover of your sketchbook write the following:
7th Grade Elements & Principles Assignment
To master your understanding of the Elements & Principles of Design, you will be creating sketchbook pages.

Please make sure to focus on your craftsmanship! These will be graded on your sketchbook check!

Sponge #2
These are advertisements for Coke that appeared in several magazines.
Writing at least 3 sentences, answer the question:

Is this art?

There is no right or wrong answer... This is your opinion!

8th Grade Assignment
You will be creating a foldable to study from for your Elements and Principles Quiz.
Each Vocabulary word will be on the front in a way that demonstrates the meaning of the word.
And the inside will contain definitions and examples that describe each vocabulary word!
