7 Elements of Art
Elements of art are the core traits of an artwork, visually detectable and separately identifiable. There are six basic elements of visual art, which when juxtaposed in a particular manner create a work of art. They are line, shape, color, value form, and texture. Space can be added as one of the artistic elements as well. The key to understanding principles of art and art analysis is learning about these elements. Not all of them need to be a part of each painting, sometimes the deliberate absence of some of them is a distinguished characteristic of an art style. However, one rule goes for all of them – learning how to paint is necessary, besides and despite natural talent, knowledge is the elementary stepping stone for artistic achievement.
