Value, sculptures and other art forms. Balance has to

Value, form, balance, movement, and rhythm are the five elements of art that I will be covering. I selected these five elements of art because I was curious about what each element means. I was also interested how  artists use these elements in their work. These elements tell you how to make a painting or a sculpture better or more efficient. This is how you use the five elements that I chose.Value is one of the most important parts of art. Value is the difference between light and dark. Value is also a part of the emphasis, contrast, and balance. It creates a lot of variations of hue. Value can also be shown in one-colored objects. Value can be shown through depth and texture for sculptures and one colored objects. “The Starry Night” is a painting that shows value with its color and difference between light and dark.Form is a very important piece for sculptures and other types of art. Form is art that is three-dimensional. Form can have height, width, and depth. Form can also have openings in the sculpture, or other pieces of art. It can also have space around the sculpture or other pieces of art that are three-dimensional. The openings and space around the art is also referred to as negative space. “Ecstasy of Saint Teresa” is a example of form. It shows that art can be apart of other cultures and religions. Balance is essential for sculptures and other art forms. Balance has to have equal weight on the left and right. Art can be heavier on the bottom and lighter on the top. This is so the sculpture or other piece of art does not appear to fall forward. A balanced piece of art also has to be symmetric which means both sides are equal shape. “Flower Day” is a good example of Balance. Movement is very important for the spectator to view the direction that artist wants them to look. This is accomplished by invisible lines. Color, shape, and edges can help you do this as well. You want the spectator to feel the movement to the emphasis or focal point. You also want your spectator to see rhythm to the emphasis. A example of movement is the painting of “The Last Supper”. The hand movements and the heads looking around show that they have movement. It shows that if you want to show movement in art than you make hand expressions or facial expressions. Rhythm is helpful to show a pattern or a design. To use this you have to use patterns of color, line, or shape. Repetition of the elements can help with texture. Rhythm can be established in composition. You can alternate the use of an element in the same way that is done in music. “Modern Dance” is a beautiful design that sets a good example of rhythm. Even though it’s just one color, it shows people dancing in such a way that it’s like the people are currently moving. I hope you agree with the five elements I selected. I chose these five elements because they are the most common elements in the art industry. Artists use these elements to make there spectators feel as if they are part of the picture or sculpture.  This also allows spectators to feel what the Artist was feeling at the time the painting or sculpting was created. It’s amazing how this world works, and that is why I love art.
