Elements of Art and Design for NIFT Entrance Preparation
It is important to understand the elements of art and design and the impact that a certain element has over a visual. 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.
P.S. Refer to this pdf file for a more detailed analysis of elements of art.
ELEMENTS OF ART
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.
Shape is a 2-d area. The shape can be geometric, abstract, organic etc.
It is nothing but the 3-D projection of the shape. Like shape, form can also be geometric or organic.
Value is the lightness or darkness and may refer to the way colour is used.
Understand the colour wheel. Understanding of warm, cool and neutral colours and their usage.
Roughness or smoothness of a surface.
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.
