Elements of Art (LineShapeColorColor2, , Texture, Value, Space,Space2 Form)  

Principles of Design (BalanceMovementContrastEmphasisRhythmPatternUnity, Harmony, Variety)

Balance - shows symmetry in the composition
Movement - elements show movement or action
Contrast - The elements are opposing one another i.e., big against small, light against dark
Emphasis - artist directs the eye to one part of the composition
Rhythm - the same elements in a pattern vary in size or direction
Harmony - elements are similar in size, shade or shape
Variety - elements are different in size, color or shape
 

*also add a color scheme

Create a sketch of making one of the elements or art into a character and principle of design into what the character does. 

example if you choose line as the elemnt of art and variety ans the principle you will have to show a variety of lines changing color and size.

For Discussion

Describe how animators use exaggeration as a tool to make animation exciting?

How can using multiple layers help you to exaggerate your characters?

What happens if a character is larger in the foreground than the objects in the background?

 

Answer the following question:

What emotion were you aiming for and how did you achieve it?

How could you make your animation more exicting or comical using the techniques learned?

Introduction to the Elements of Art (LineShapeColorColor2Color3Texture, Value, Space,Space2 Form) and

 

The Principles of Design (BalanceMovementContrast,EmphasisRhythmPatternUnity, Harmony, Variety)

 

The Elements of Composition in art are used to arrange or organize the components in a way that is pleasing to the artist and, hopefully, the viewer. It helps give structure to the layout and the way the subject is presented. It also encourages or leads the viewer's eye to wander around the whole painting, taking in everything and ultimately coming back to rest on the focal point. In Western art they are generally considered to be:

 

  • Unity: Do all the parts of the composition feel as if they belong together, or does something feel stuck on, awkwardly out of place?
  • Balance: Having a symmetrical arrangement adds a sense of calm, whereas an asymmetrical arrangement creates a sense of unease, imbalance. (See example)
  • Movement: There many ways to give a sense of movement in a painting, such as the arrangement of objects, the position of figures, the flow of a river. (See example
  • Rhythm: In much the same way music does, a piece of art can have a rhythm or underlying beat that leads and paces the eye as you look at it. Look for the large underlying shapes (squares, triangles, etc.) and repeated color. (See example)
  • Focus (or Emphasis): The viewer's eye ultimately wants to rest of the "most important" thing or focal point in the painting, otherwise the eye feels lost, wandering around in space. (See example)
  • Contrast: Strong differences between light and dark, or minimal, such as Whistler did in his Nocturne series. (See example)
  • Pattern: An underlying structure, the basic lines and shapes in the composition.
  • Proportion: How things fit together, big and small, nearby and distant.

Imagine and brainstorm ideas. Be creative; build upon the wild and crazy ideas of others. Investigate existing technologies and methods to use. Explore, compare and analyze many possible solutions. Learn the skill needed to complete the task.

Research the Problem - A REBUS is a picture representation of a name, work, or phrase. Create a REBUS using one of the Elements of Art.

Element of Art And Principle of Design-

Techniques-

Methods - Free Transform, Rectangle, Oval, PolyStar, Rectangle Primitive and Oval Primitive tools. Using the Merge Drawing mode and the Object Drawing mode.

 

Step 3 – Design 

Design - Using your knowledge and creativity to come up with many solutions & choose one idea. Design 3 different options. Change the size, color or location of some of the objects. Pick the best choice. Yesterday your team created a REBUS design that illustrated one of the Elements of Art. Create three versions and choose the best one.

Step 4 – Create

Create the design using one of Elements of Art.

Step 5: Try It Out 

Mid-Point Design Review

Present and discuss the current status of the project in front of instructor and peers. Students should describe their work, and anything else that they deem important.

Step 6: Make It Better

Make It Better: Evaluate how the solution worked and think of how to improve your design. Discuss how you could improve your product. Make revisions. Draw new designs. Iterate your design to make your product the best it can be. Prepare for Critique fill out EDP and discuss your work with the class.

Project 1

Design a REBUS using one of the Elements of Art as a background.

Elements of Art (LineShapeColorColor2Color3Texture, Value, Space,Space2 Form) 

In the Step 6 phase redesign using a Principle of Design

Principles of Design (BalanceMovementContrastEmphasisRhythmPatternUnity, Harmony, Variety)

 

Balance - shows symmetry in the composition
Movement - elements show movement or action
Contrast - The elements are opposing one another i.e., big against small, light against dark
Emphasis - artist directs the eye to one part of the composition
Rhythm - the same elements in a pattern vary in size or direction
Harmony - elements are similar in size, shade or shape
Variety - elements are different in size, color or shape

*also add a color scheme
