Our next artwork in 8th grade uses the Elements of Art, which are the basic building blocks of art. Artists use one or more of them when creating their art.
The goal of this unit is to introduce students to the basic elements of art (color, line, shape, form, and texture) and to show students how artists use these elements in different ways in their work.
Students were introduced to the art elements and then shown some famous artworks where artists were emphasizing a particular artwork. After that, student picked an art element to focus on in their artwork. The trick part was to show that one art element and not over emphasize any other element.
Can you tell which art elements students are emphasizing in these artworks?
