Line: A continuous mark made on a surface by a moving point. 3 properties of a line: Direction – where’s it goin? Measure – thick, thin, etc. Character – emotional quality How Lines affect a piece of art: • Define a space • Create an outline Types of lines How do lines define this painting? How do the diagonal lines in this drawing create mood? H W Shape Shapes are enclosed spaces. 2-Dimensions: Height & Width Notice how the enclosed shapes create images… Geometric Shapes: Recognizably named areas based on straight lines, angles, and curves. Examples: circles, rectangles, squares, triangles Organic Shapes: shapes with a natural look and a flowing and curving appearance. They have less well-defined edges. Paintings with organic shapes A Which painting is uses organic lines? B Organic or Geometric Lines??? Form: D H An object with 3-Dimensions: Height & Width & Depth W Form in Sculpture… What do you think this is made of? This is SNOW! And here’s more snow sculpture… Form in Furniture Form in Performance Art! …In architecture Texture: The actual feel or touch of a surface. Gives a visual sense of how a 2- dimensional object would feel. 2-Dimensional Texture… What is the “visual” feel of this charcoal painting? What Elements of Art do you see? Explain on your guided notes sheet Two ways that Van Gogh creates texture in this painting. More Texture: In 3-dimensional art, texture is tactile – you can feel it! What do you think these are made of? SPACE: a perception of depth or dimension. Defines whether objects are in front or behind other objects, are situated around them, or project from them. Space brings perspective to the artwork. Perspective is the technique of representing threedimensional objects and depth relationships on a two-dimensional surface. . Linear Perspective tricks the eye into seeing depth on a flat surface. Linear Perspective…tricking the eye! Tricking the eye! Linear Perspective… And more linear perspective! One-point Perspective… • Shows forms from a “face-on” vantage point. One-point perspective Two-Point Perspective • Shows an angular view – not “face-on.” Aerial or Atmospheric Perspective: A method of creating the illusion of distance by representing objects farther away with less clarity of contour and in diminished color. Notice how there is less clarity and color in the background of these paintings. Value: An element of design that relates to the lightness and darkness of a color in a work of art. How Values are adjusted… •A color can be lightened by adding white or darkened using black. Shade: The value of a color is darkened when adding black to it. Tint: A color is lightened when adding white to it. COLOR • An element of design that identifies natural and manufactured things as being red, yellow, blue, orange, etc. What are Primary • YELLOW • RED • BLUE Colors? Color Theory: All colors can be made from the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue. Secondary Hues: Created from mixing 2 primary colors. • Hue: a particular • shade or tint of a given color Intermediate Hues: Created when mixing together primary and secondary colors. Also called TERTIARY colors Complementary colors are hues directly opposite one another on the color wheel are. Complementary Colors Write down this complementary scheme Complementary Color Scheme • When these colors are mixed together, the overall effect diminishes the intensity of the hue. • Intensity: The strength, brightness, or purity of a color. The intensity may be lowered by adding white or black. Intensity… • Notice the intensity gets lighter and darker. Triadic Color Scheme: A color group or color scheme using three colors of equal distance from one another on the color wheel, forming an equilateral triangle. Red, blue, and green form a triadic color group. Triadic Color Scheme Triadic Color Scheme in a garden! Analogous Color Scheme: colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. One color is used as a dominant color while others are used to enrich the scheme.
