Principals of design By Trey Skinner

Repetition

repeated elements of art: shapes, color, textures, lines, forms, values.

Movement

how the elements are arranged to direct the viewers eye throughout the art. Could be in a "V" "X" "T" shape or an organic line.

Balance

What does it mean for a piece of art to be "Balanced"? How do we make art Balanced (types)

Variation

The elements in art need to be varied but harmonious. Ex. Different width lines, various selection of sizes with the shapes, different shades of a color, etc.

Dominance

Also called "Emphasis" or "Center of Interest." One aspect of the picture needs to stand out. This might

be done though contract of size, color, value, texture. This is the most "eye-catching" part of the picture. Illustrate and explain this on you page.

Economy

This is purposefully leaving aspects of the original image OUT as you draw or paint in order
