by line, value, texture, space,
or any combination of these
elements. a shape has 2
dimensions: length and width. SHAPE form Is three dimensional and encloses
space. Form has length, width,
and also depth. VALUE changes from dark to light areas used to create the illusion of three dimensions on a two dimensional surface. TEXTURE Refers to how a picture surface feels
or looks like it feels space
defines the open areas betwen, around, or below an object. positive space is filled by a shape or form. Negative space is the open areas around or within a shape or form. COLOR a color has hue(color name), intensity (strength), and value (lightness or darkness).

interest. Movement referring to a way of combining
visual elements to move the
viewers eye through the piece or
create a sense of action Rhythm Combining elements through
repetition, alteration, or
progression of a art element
