Visual Arts Concepts
Elements of Art - Arts EALR 1.1.1
Line quality/Expressive line - thick, thin, soft, crisp, feathery, bold, dashed, etc.
Line direction - straight, curved, vertical, horizontal, diagonal, spiraling, hatching,
cross-hatching, etc.
Descriptive line - contour, outline
Open shape/form - shape/form whose perimeter is broken so that space penetrates it
Closed shape/form - shape that completely encloses space, solid form
• Organic (irregular shapes, from nature) vs. geometric shapes (regular shapes with
math names, made according to rules of geometry, e.g. square, circle, triangle, etc.)
Shape (2-D) vs. form (3-D)
• Black, grey, white - value scales (any number of even gradations between black and
Tints (adding white) and shades (adding black) to colors
Three properties of color - hue (name of color), value (lightness or darkness),
intensity (brightness or dullness)
Color wheel- primary, secondary, tertiary/intermediate colors
Warm (yellow, orange, red) vs. cool (blue, green, violet) colors
Complementary colors (colors directly opposite each other on the color wheel, e.g.
Neutral colors (colors mixed with their complements)
Actual texture - what surface feels like, e.g. rough, smooth, bumpy, ridged
Implied texture - 2-D techniques (painting, drawing, printmaking) that suggest the
textures of our natural world: hair, velvet, fur, granite, bark, etc.
Repetition of motifs (any shape that repeats)
Regular vs. irregular - stripes (bands), zigzags (chevrons), scallop (fish scale),
notched (crenellated), checkerboard (counterchange)
Mathematical patterns - fractals, tessellations
Principles of Organization - Arts EALR 1.1.2
Positive space
Negative space
Compiled by Beverly Harding Buehler
Illusion of depth - overlapping, horizon line, perspective (I-point, 2-point, multiple
points), diminishing size, atmospheric perspective
Open vs. closed composition
Emphasis - focal point, dominance vs. subordination
• Unity
Formal balance (mirror symmetry, radial symmetry)
• Informal balance (asymmetry)
Skills and Techniques - Arts EALR 1.2
Drawing - gesture, contour, life, still life, landscape, portraiture
Painting - ink, watercolor, acrylic, oil
Printmaking - stamping, monoprints, relief prints (scratch foam, lino cut, woodcut),
silkscreen (serigraph), intaglio (etching with acid)
Sculpture - bas-relief (metal tooling, wood cut), in-the-round (free-standing sculpture)
Ceramics - hand-building (pinch pots, coil, slab), wheel-throwing
Textiles - weaving, quilting, dyeing, paper-making
New Media - digital photography, computer graphics
Styles - Arts EALR 1.3
Naturalism - observational drawing, rendering in light and shadow, cast shadows,
naturalistic proportions
Abstraction - simplification, exaggeration, altering space

Cultural styles - e.g. Australian Aboriginal dot painting, Northwest Coast Native
forrnline design, Islamic tessellated patterns, Celtic eternal knot designs, etc.
Historical art movements - e.g. Impressionism, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, etc.
Compiled by Beverly Harding Buehler
