After a short review of the previous lesson and a quick practice of the DESCRIBE step of the art criticism process, we will move to the ANALYZE step. Students will be introduced to the Elements of Art (line, shape, form, color, value, texture, and space). There will be minimal discussion on line, shape, form, value, and texture, with more discussion of color and space. Our color discussion will include properties of color (hue, saturation, intensity) and color schemes (warm / cool colors, complementary colors). Our space discussion will focus on positive / negative space and how artists represent a 3D space in two dimensions (perspective, size, placement, overlapping, color/value, and detail). We will identify these elements in various artworks in a virtual gallery tour.
We will end with a short review and time for questions.
We will take a tour of a virtual art gallery to explore use of elements & principles in the artworks.
