Reflection Pre-final
Answering and reading this module was a roller coaster of emotion and the journey towards the
finish was full of surprises. As I was reading and learning, I came upon various lessons and topics that
helped me undertand and appreciate arts much better than before. During the span of the time given to
read and answer this module, I learned that the principles of art, also known as design principles, are a
collection of standards that describe how visual objects are organized in a work of art. These values are
the nearest thing we have to a collection of concrete guidelines for assessing and evaluating art that we
In addition to that I discovered that the artist's principles of art describe how he or she uses the
elements of art to produce an impression and communicate the artist's intention. Harmony, rhythm,
balance, proportion, focus, movement, pattern, unity/variety, and contrast are the ideals of art and
architecture. These principles will aid in determining whether or not a painting is good, as well as
whether or not it is complete. The artist chooses which artistic ideals to apply to a painting. While an
artist does not use any of the design concepts in a single work, they are interconnected, and the use of
one would always rely on the use of another. When making focus, for example, the artist can sometimes
use comparison, or vice versa. When making focus, for example, the artist can sometimes use
comparison, or vice versa. A good painting, according to most experts, is visually balanced, has some
variation provided by areas of contrast and focus, and transfers the viewer's eye through the
composition. As a result, one artistic theory will affect the effect and impact of another.
Furthermore I learned that to comprehend art, one must be able to interpret artistic works like
painting, sculpture, video, and advertisement images as a text that conveys a complex of ideas,
emotions, perceptions, moods, environment, and value derived from public or personal world views and
ideologies. According to Alice G., one must also read the work in order to analyze it in terms of
conveying meaning.
Lastly I identified that the term "art revolution" refers to a trend in art that has a shared ideology or
goal. A collective of artists follows an art trend for a limited amount of time, culminating in the
movement's heyday. In contemporary art, where "each successive trend is called a new avant-grade,"
art movements are extremely significant.
To sum everything up, this module totally opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities
and endless interpretation to art. With the knowledge I acquired from this module, I hope that I will not
just improve my own artistic eye but also to teach and elucidate the persons around me on how it is
important to appreciate art specially in our globalized and modern world.
