The Elements & Principles of Design Icons

I had the chance to teach the elements & principles unit for grade 9 and 10 and faced the challenge of trying to make these terms easily accessible for a range of students. I found that by going though each element and principle with examples from art history, and then applying this in a studio session, the students got the concepts. The problem was then being able to remember them all. I tried these handouts and they worked surprisingly well. I gave out blank versions, and had the students fill out each term and definition as we covered them in class. Value+worksheet+-+completed.jpg (JPEG Image, 1331 × 1600 pixels)

Basics of 1 Point and 2 Point Perspective – AKA Parallel and Angular Perspective Observe that as we view the top, its outer edges appear to converge. This condition is caused by an optical illusion.

When you design a drawing or painting, the shape of the surface you work on plays an important role in composition.

Design A Drawing : Use an Appropriate Format

Once you pick one, all subsequent composition takes place within that particular shape. This shape is called the 'format'. When you consciously choose the format of a work to suit the subject matter, it serves as another element that leads to a successful painting. A painting can take on different looks with each format. The art formats that artists commonly use include rectangles, squares, circles and ovals. Picture Composition : Design Your Painting. An attractive painting is almost always a painting with good picture composition.

Picture Composition : Design Your Painting

A well-designed painting or drawing grabs your attention from a distance—even before you can see the details. In comparison, a weak composition is less visually appealing at any range. Good composition in a painting results in a harmony of shapes, colors, and values. The viewer's eyes stay interested long enough to take it all in, rather than becoming bored and wandering off. Once you have learned how to draw what you see, you need to begin learning how to compose your painting by aligning the various components for best effect. The Divine Proportion. The Divine Proportion Any objective observation we make must include a discussion of proportion for it is the rule of proportion in the examination of nature that causes us to observe an organized universe and a universe in chaos, rational and irrational numbers, harmony and discord, truth and falsity.

The Divine Proportion

These descriptions are merely proportional effects of the opposition that is inherent in all things. We see harmony expressed by those emotions, feelings, and characteristics present within ourselves. This harmony is viewed within nature as the Divine Proportion.

Saying to students, “Read this nine-page science article, write a detailed essay on the topic it explores, and turn it in by Wednesday.” Yikes—no safety net, no parachute, no scaffolding—they’re just left blowing in the wind.
