Balance- CD Weaving
Balance is a way of combining elements to add feeling of equilibrium or stability to a work of art. Major types are symmetrical and asymmetrical.
Unity- Ribbon Group Drawing
Unity is achieved when the components of a work of art are perceived as harmonious, giving the work a sense of completion.

Contrast is a way of combining elements to stress the difference between those elements.
Emphasis- Emphasis Drawing
Emphasis refers to the created center of interest, the place in an artwork where your eyes first land.
Pattern- "Sometimes I Get Bored"
Pattern is an underlying structure that organizes surfaces or structures in a constant, regular manner.
Rhythm/Movement- Marble in Motion
Rythm or Movement refers to the suggestion of motion through the use of various elements.
