Arts Visuels - La ligne Le dessin d'imagination consiste à créer à partir de sa réserve personnelle d'images intérieures (images mémorisées ou innées) et en projeter de nouvelles (par intuition, réflexion ou en réaction à ce qui apparaît sur le support). Il révèle en particulier les impressions et les sentiments, les émotions et la sensibilité (pensée visuelle, figurative et fluidité idéationnelle). L'activité commence par un travail d'introspection, la source d'inspiration se trouvant en soi. Pour l'éveil de l'imagination on se référera aux techniques propres à stimuler la créativité comme les activités de " remue-méninges ", d'écriture automatique, de jeux de hasard (exemples : le cadavre exquis, la pêche aléatoire aux mots, les compositions aléatoires, les échantillons à intégrer) les procédés qui relèvent du hasard (jeté d'objets, taches, techniques surréalistes ou aux " tours de main ") ainsi que les entrées sensitives (odeur, goût, bruit, sensation tactile) parmi d'autres.

Elements and principles of design The elements and principles of design are the building blocks used to create a work of art. The elements of design can be thought of as the things that make up a painting, drawing, design etc. Good or bad - all paintings will contain most of if not all, the seven elements of design. The Principles of design can be thought of as what we do to the elements of design. How we apply the Principles of design determines how successful we are in creating a work of art. note - the hyperlinks within the text of this page will open information in a new browser window. LINE Line can be considered in two ways. SHAPE A shape is a self contained defined area of geometric or organic form. DIRECTION All lines have direction - Horizontal, Vertical or Oblique. SIZE Size is simply the relationship of the area occupied by one shape to that of another. TEXTURE Texture is the surface quality of a shape - rough, smooth, soft hard glossy etc. COLOUR Also called Hue see notes on colour

Who Knew? Arts Education Fuels the Economy In public-policy battles over arts education, you might hear that it is closely linked to greater academic achievement, social and civic engagement, and even job success later in life. But what about the economic value of an arts education? Here even the field’s most eloquent champions have been at a loss for words, or rather numbers. Until now. In December, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the U.S. The numbers are still a work in progress. The total economic output (gross revenue and expenses) for arts education in 2011, the most recent year for which data are available, was $104-billion. Again, these figures do not include design schools, media-arts departments within schools of communications, or creative-writing programs—to name just a few notable omissions from the world of higher education. It’s not just arts enthusiasts who feel this way. Why, then, the paucity of solid economic analyses to inform funding and policy decisions about arts education?

colour - elements and principles of design The 12 part colour wheel below is based on the three primary colours ( Red, Yellow and Blue ) placed evenly around a circle. Between the three primaries are the secondary colours (Green, Orange and Violet) which are mixtures of the two primaries they sit between. The tertiary colours fall between each primary and secondary. Between yellow and orange, for example, is yellow orange, between blue and violet is blue violet and so on. All these colours around the outside of the colour wheel are called saturated colours. NB. Compound colours are colours containing a mixture of the three primaries.

The Lost Principles of Design In the instant age that design has evolved into recently many of us often stray away from the basics. If you had a professor in college who taught you the fundamentals of design these may be engrained into your head. For the self-taught, you may have a book on your desk with these very principles. However, the more and more people that flood the internet for design content need to learn the basics before trying to make a stellar gradient in Photoshop. While this is cool and amazing right now, there will come a point where this style is strayed away from and a new style is made. Balance Arranging parts to achieve a state of equilibrium between forces of influences. Examples: Symmetrical, Asymmetrical, Radial Contrast Interaction of contradictory elements. Examples: Large & Small, rough & smooth, thick & thin, light & dark, organic & geometric Emphasis & Subordination Establishing centers of interest which focus the viewer’s attention. Directional Forces Proportion Scale Repetition & Rhythm Balance
