In this Unit you will be adding information to the art gallery you started in Unit II. We have moved on from the structure and purpose of art to the interpretation of artworks using the elements of design. Here are tips for this assignment:
Use the slides labeled Visual Elements, design principles, and explanation of background using fact in the Art Gallery Template.
Make sure you describe the Visual Elements in your own words.
Line – describe what kind of lines are in the artwork (vertical, horizontal, diagonal, thick, thin, etc). What do the lines do? Do they lead your eye to something?
Shape – describe what kind of shapes are in the artwork and where they appear. Are there circular shapes in clouds, rectangular shapes in buildings?
Light – where is the light coming from? what is it highlighting?
Color – what colors are used? are the colors bright, tints, muted? different shades of one hue?
Texture – is there a pattern on some area in the artwork? is there a paint texture such as impasto?
Mass – is the artwork heavier in one area?
Time – is there anything in the artwork that gives the sense of time? is it a daytime or night time scene?
Motion – is motion depicted? Are people walking, running, floating, or climbing toward something?
