Elements of art

By: Garrison Lemmond   #slaytonart2

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.

Value- Charcoal Art

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

Shape/Form- Found Objects Sculpture

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

Space- Paper low Relief

Space is an element of art by which positive and negative areas are defined or a sense of depth achieved in a work of art.

Texture- Chair Painting

Texture is an element of art that refers to the way things feel, or look as if they might feel if touched.
