WHAT IS ART? IS IT FORM? CONTENT? STYLE? MEDIUM? LINE SHAPE
COMPOSITION SPACE An element of art, space refers to distances or areas around, between or within components of a piece. Space can be positive (white or light) or negative (black or dark), open or closed, shallow or deep and two-dimensional or threedimensional. Sometimes space isn't actually within a piece, but the
illusion of it is. MASS & VO LU M E COLOR HUE VALUE
SATURATION Maybe Art is a point of view- the angle from which we see the world. Perspective is an attempt to reproduce objects on a flat surface as they appear to the eye. Form is an element of art. At its most basic, a form is a threedimensional geometrical figure (i.e.: sphere, cube, cylinder, cone, etc.), as opposed to a shape, which is two-dimensional, or flat.
Form refers to the visible elements of a piece, independent of their meaning. For example, in Leonardo's Mona Lisa, the formal elements are color, dimension, lines, mass, shape, etc., while the feelings of mystery and intrigue the piece evokes are informal products of the viewer's imagination. But what does it mean? Meaning is a question of CONTENT, which includes: Subject matter
Context (social, political, and economic) Intention (artist) Reception or interpretation (of and by the viewer) Iconography and symbolism Aulus Metellus DOES IT ALL
