Looking for a brief, straightforward explanation and reference to the elements of art (line, shape, form, color, value, texture, space) and the principles of design (balance, movement, rhythm, contrast, emphasis, pattern, unity) all in one book? Each 2-page spread covers a new concept, with a brief overview and explanation on the left page and activities to practice and reinforce the concepts on the right page. Colorful graphics are used throughout along with examples of artwork by master artists and how they used the elements and principles. This is a great reference for all students studying art or design and can be used through elementary, middle and high school years.
