Submitted by Anonymous on Wed, 07/07/2010 - 00:00
County Fair is coming soon and you will need to be able to explain Design Elements and Art Principles for your Exhibits.
Understanding Design Elements and Art Principles
is a lot like understanding the ingredients in a Cookie Recipe. The Design Elements are the ingredients and the Art Principles are how you mix those ingredients together to make a delicious cookie! Take a look at this Quilt and what do you see? Lines, colors and a great use of space!
Here are the Design Elements (Ingredients of Art): Line, Shape, Color, Texture, Space
Here are the Art Principles (ways which the ingredients interact): Balance, Emphasis, Movement, Pattern, Proportion, Repetition, Rhythm, Variety, Unity
A special thank you for these resources to Ann Torbert, Regional 4-H Program Specialist, Sue Bogue, State 4-H Specialist and to whatever county developed the Design Elements/Art Principles Check Sheet.
