    Read carefully and take good notes. Then get started drawing!

  • 6 principals of art -

    There are "6 Principles of" Design and there are 6 Elements "of Art". So I don't know which one your teacher is referring to. Message me on Facebook "Autumn Martino" and I will provide you with quick sketch ideas for each one.

    "The 6 Principles of DESIGN":

    Principles of Design
    The ways in which the Elements of Art are organized are referred to as the Principles of Design.

    1. Rhythm and Movement - the visual flow through a work of art, incorporating repetition
    2. Balance - symmetry and asymmetry
    3. Proportion - large next to small
    4. Variety - the use of different or contrasting elements to add interest
    5. Emphasis - used to make something stand out, like dark next to light
    6. Unity - how all the aspects of a work of art work together

    "The 6 Elements of ART":

    Elements of Art
    The elements of art are the building blocks of an artistic creation, a "visual language" or "visual alphabet" used by the artist.

    1. Line - a continuous mark made on a surface
    2. Shape - two-dimensional (circle, square, rectangle, triangle) and encloses space
    3. Form - three-dimensional and encloses and takes up space
    4. Color - that which is perceived when light hits and reflects off an object. Three properties of color are Hue (name of a color), Intensity (strength of a color) and Value (lightness or darkness of a color)
    5. Texture - the surface quality or feel of an object
    6. Space - the illusion of space is created through light and shadow
