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 have. 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.
