Line Systems

Last week we worked on Project 2 continuing to abstract a design's Degree of Representation by exploring the Elements of Design Shape & Space focusing on the Principle of Organization Balance.

This week we will work withDegrees of Representation and abstracting subject matter by exploring how Line Systems engage the Elements of Design Line, Shape & Texture to help us perceive depth through Shaped Value Gradation.

E-portfolio Project 3: Create a new page and upload Photograph/Scan of your final artwork, and post the self-critique. Due in the beginning of class..

Complete Exercise 2 | Texture due at the beginning of class 7.

Make sure you also bring all the supplies needed to work on Project 4 in class.

After reading Design Basics: Rhythm and researching what Movement in design is, search the Internet for an artwork that clearly has a strong sense of Movement.
Post the image here and write how rhythm and movement in the artwork were accomplished.
Here are some possibilities:
. Changes in direction.
. Changes in darkness or lightness.
. Similar shapes connected with each other.
. Overlapping elements.
. Repetition of elements.
