Hi, my name is Maya and I love art too.  Did you know that artists have their own vocabulary, or set of words, that they think about when they make art?

The Elements of Art are the basic ingredients an artist uses when creating an artwork.  The Elements of Art are to an artist like the ingredients of a recipe are to a chef.  An artist uses different combinations of the elements to make a masterpiece.  The elements are line, shape, color, value, texture, space and form.  When I look at art I try to find all the different Elements of Art the artist used in the artwork.  What colors do you see? What shapes do you see?

Do you want to look for the elements of art with me?
