Elements of Art/Design

One really needs to understand the elements of art to understand the impact that a certain element can create. For example diagonal lines appear undecided, unstable, busy, active, dynamic, restless, dramatic, sporty, lengthening, and reduce horizontal or vertical shapes. Often a diagonal line needs opposing diagonal to appear balanced. I have also attached a pdf file on the same. Hope this article helps you.

You can also read this (Elements of Design in FASHION) to understand elements of design in fashion design.

P.S. We NIFTians don’t like theory but do go through this pdf file (which I have also attached below) and the Elements of Design in FASHION for better understanding.

ELEMENTS OF ART

LINE
Now every one knows what a line is. The path which connects two points. Lines can be straight, vertical, horizontal, curve, zig-zag, angular etc.

Lines

SHAPE
Shape is a 2-d area. The shape can be geometric, abstract, organic etc.

FORM
It is nothing but the 3-D projection of the shape. Like shape, form can also be geometric or organic.

Shapes

VALUE
Value is the lightness or darkness and may refer to the way colour is used.

COLOUR
Understand the colour wheel. Understanding of warm, cool and neutral colours and their usage.

TEXTURE
Roughness or smoothness of a surface.

SPACE
Positive Space is created by objects that are seen as a main element appearing to be in front of the background.
Negative Space is the area that surrounds the shapes.

A well known example of positive and negative space.
