Elements of Art

An element of art is the visual components of color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value.

Line- Scratch Art

An element of art defined by a point moving in space. Line may be two-or three-dimensional, descriptive, implied, or abstract.

Color- Bold Self Portrait

Color is an element of art made up of three properties: hue, value, and intensity.                 -Hue: name of color.                                                                                                             -Value: hue's lightness and darkness (a color's value changes when white or black is added.).                                                                                                                                    -Intensity: quality of brightness and purity ( high intensity= color is strong and bright; low intensity= color is faint and dull)

Value - Charcoal Art

The lightness or darkness of tones of colors. White is the lightest value; black is the darkest. The value halfway between these extremes is called middle gray.

Shape/Form-Found Objects Sculpture

Shape is an element of art that is two-dementional, flat, or limited to height and width.    Form is an element of art that is three-demential and encloses volume; includes height, width AND depth ( as a cube, a sphere, a pyramid, or a cylinder.

My favorite artwork on this page is the scratch art. You seem to have a good understanding of how to shade by scratching lighter. Good work on your over all element page love the pictures.
