In art there is always rules and tricks to create artwork. Without the rules and tricks there wouldn’t be any artwork. Like any other subject, such as Math & English, they all have rules. In art, the rules are in order from one to seven. That’s right, seven. I suppose I wouldn’t call the tricks “Rules,” I would call them elements, which they really are called. So I think you might be ready to learn what the seven elements are. If you have an art test, this would be really good to study. Below is a list of each element with a given definition.
Elements of Art
- Line – The easiest definition of all. Line is commonly known as a moving dot made from a pointed tool such as a pencil, pen, brush, or any other utensil.
- Shape - A shape is when lines collides together creating space inside the collision. For instance: Star, square, circle, etc.
- Form – Form is anything that will take up space. Usually a form is 3-Dimensional like a sphere, cube, or pyramid.
- Color – An element used to give artwork an appealing look, also to help you understand color, look at a rainbow. All the things you see on a rainbow is color.
- Texture – An element that represents quality of any artwork. For instance: Extra detail.
- Value – Represents the lightness and darkness of artwork.
- Space – Represents the distance from one object to another.
You should really study on the seven elements of art. They do come in handy a whole bunch. If you love this information so much, I would prefer our new page called “Art Principles” or visit “Art Elements.” Do well and have a great day.
