Elements of design-ARD415/ARD 416

The various visual elements, known as elements of design, formal elements, or elements of art, constitute the vocabulary with which the visual artist composes. These elements in the overall design usually relate to each other and to the whole artwork.

The elements of design are:

  • Line — the visual path that enables the eye to move within the piece
  • Shape — areas defined by edges within the piece, whether geometric or organic
  • Color — hues with their various values and intensities
  • Texture — surface qualities which translate into tactile illusions
  • Value — Shading used to emphasize form
  • Form — 3-D length, width, or depth
  • Space — the space taken up by (positive) or in between (negative) objects
