2. Elements of Art The building blocks or ingredients of art. They structure and carry the work. 3. What are the elements of arts? The Elements of Art are the tools that artists use to make art.There are7 of them: 4. Elements of Art 1. Line5. Form2. Color6. Space3. Value7. Texture4. Shape 5. Line 6. Line A line is a path that a point takes through space. Lines can be thick, thin, dotted or solid. They can be straight, zig-zagged, wavy, curly, etc.They may be horizontalverticaldiagonal 7. Color 8. Color Color has three properties: 1. HUE: this is the name of the colors 2. VALUE: refers to the lightness or darkness of a hue.3. INTENSITY: refers to the purity of the hue (called Chroma) 9. Color 10. Warm and Cool Colors Warm red, orange, yellow Cool green, blue, violet 11. Neutral Colors These colors are made by adding a complimentary color (opposite on the color wheel) to a hue. Neutralized hues are called tones. 12. ValueValue is the lightness or darkness of a color. Value makes objects appear more real because it imitates natural light. When showing value in a work of art, you will need a LIGHT SOURCE.A light source is the place where the light is coming from, the darkest areas are always on the opposite side of the light. 13. VALUE High Range in ValueLow Range in Value 14. Shape Shape is created when a line becomes connected and encloses space. It is the outline or outward appearance of something. Shapes are 2 Dimensional- which means you can measure its HEIGHT and its WIDTH.There are two basic types of shapes: 15. Geometric shapes have smooth even edges and are measurable. The include the square, the circle, the triangle and the rectangle. 16. Organic shapes have more complicated edges and are usually found in nature- such as leaves and flowers. 17. Form A Form is a shape that has become 3Dimensional (3-D) Form has HEIGHT, WIDTH and DEPTH. Depth shows the thickness of the object. Forms are NOT flat like shapes are! 18. Form can be 2D Form can be 3D 19. .Sp ca e 20. S p a c e Space is the area in, around, above, below, etc. in a composition. It is basically divided into 3 parts: Foreground, Middle Ground, and Background. 21. S p a c ePositive (filled with something) and Negative (empty areas) 22. S p a c e Perspective is when the artist uses a vanishing point on the horizon and then creates a sense of deep space by showing objects getting progressively smaller as they get closer to the vanishing point. 23. TEXTUREThe surface quality or "feel" of an object, its smoothness, roughness, softness, etc. 24. TEXTURETextures may be actual or implied. 25. TEXTURE Implied texture that has been simulated in drawing and painting on a smooth surfaceActual texture that you can feel with your sense of touch 26.
