Art Term Tuesday-Principles of Art

Posted by in Art History, In the Studio | 0 comments

The last few weeks I’ve written a weekly post called Art Term Tuesday. The last 7 weeks, the art terms have related to the Elements of Art.  The Elements of Art are the building blocks, or ingredients, of an artwork. The Elements of Art are line, shape, color, texture, value, space and form.
Starting next week, all the art terms will relate to the Principles of Art. The Principles of Art are the ways which an artist organizes the Elements of Art.  An artist uses a little of this or a lot of that to make a visually appealing work of art.
The Principles of Art are balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm and unity.
Next week we will delve into what each art term means and explore artworks that exemplify those terms.
