These are the building blocks of art. They are concrete things meaning you can see them and move them.
(Note - draw a thumbnail sketch in sketchbook for each)
- A mark on a surface, usually created by a pen, pencil, or brush. Lines vary in width, length, direction, color, and degree of curve, and can be two-dimensional
Shape / Form
- A two-dimensional figure created by connecting actual or implied lines that enclose an area of space. A shape can be geometric (such as a circle or square) or organic (having an irregular outline).
Form: A three-dimensional object or, in an artwork, the representation of a three dimensional
object, defined by contour, height, depth, and width.
- Color: Also referred to as hue, color is the appearance of an object created by the quality of light it reflects. The term color also can refer to a paint, dye, pigment, or other substance that conveys color.
- Value: The lightness or darkness of a color. For example, pink is a light value of red, while navy is a dark value of blue.
- Texture: The way a surface feels (actual texture) or looks (visual texture). words such as rough, smooth, shiny, and dull are used to describe texture.
- Pattern: The regular repetition of colors, lines, shapes, or forms in an artwork.
- Space: The open or empty area round, above, between, within, or below objects.
Shapes and forms are defined by the empty space surrounding them (negative
space) and by the space they occupy (positive space).
