Whats going on in the Art Room?


    Have you heard of the "Elements and Principles" of art? These two categories help us to describe, plan and/or make artwork. All of my lessons include at least one of these concepts as well as an artist that provides a great example of the lesson or concept taught!

    Elements of Art are are the building blocks, or basic vocabulary, of art. They are: line, Color, Shape, Texture, Form and Value.

    Principles of Design are what we use to organize the Elements of art. They are: Balance, Emphasis, Rhythm, Unity, Variety, Proportion and Pattern/Repetition.

    Have fun exploring the Elements and Principles with the links below!
