What's Happening in Basic Design This Week?
Classroom Resources and Inspiration!
Elements of Art
Elements in Artwork
Watercolor Techniques from the Chicago Art Institute
Sugar Skull History and Tradition
In Basic Design, we will be exploring the elements of Art and Design, which include Line, Shape, Color, Space, Value, Texture, and Form, and the Principles of Art and Design, which include Pattern, Balance, Unity, Rhythm, Movement, Emphasis, and Contrast. We will discover different ways to use each of these elements and principles in our artwork this year. By the end of this year, you should be able to identify these elements and principles in your own work, your classmates’ work, and in the work of famous artists. You should also be able to actively participate in a classroom critique, being able to effectively give and take constructive criticism.
Late work will only be accepted up to one day after it is due. Work turned in the day after it is due will receive a 20 percent deduction. Work will NOT be accepted two or more days late! If you are absent, it is YOUR responsibility to get and make up any missing work!
