shape and Mass in Art

shapes associated with geometry organic shape any shape that resembles or suggests a living organism. A shape that is influenced by or derived from nature. No elements, no artend of story. Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later. Try "The artist's use the Exxon Mobile Oil Company of _ (insert element here) is interesting." This is a much safer course than attempting to psychoanalyze the artist (after all, you may be standing in a clump of people that includes his or her mother) or using words which leave.

Sir Issac Newton's Color Theory, color is a function of light/Discovered in 1666. Remember line, shape, form, space, texture, value and color. Secondary Colors orange, green, violet/Made by mixing two primary colors. Visual Arts, the elements of art are sort of like atoms in that both serve as "building blocks" for creating something. Primary Colors red, yellow, blue(Theoretically) Cannot be made by any mixture of colors. Once you know what the elements are, you can trot them out, time after time, and never put a wrong foot forward in the art world. Mass and volume Mass: the physical bulk (a shape in 3- dimensions) Volume: the measurable area that an object occupies Mass and volume can be actual or implied. This is gauged by how much a shape draws our attention Symmetrical Balance two halves of a composition on either side of an imaginary central vertical axis correspond to one another in size, shape, and placement/Sometimes a mirror image, but does not have to be/Gives. Negative shape/space the area surrounding defined objects and/or figures within a composition. So it is with the elements of art. Variety Difference/Adds (visual) interest Balance The equal distribution of visual weight Visual Weight apparent "heaviness" or "lightness" of the forms arranged in a composition.

Now the glass has mass, or density.
The density of a material is scientifically defined as its mass per unit of volume.
For example, a rock has more density than a cotton ball.
The first one is empty (filled with air it has volume.
