  1. Elements and Principles of Design

  2. Purpose of Elements and Principles of Art When designing an artwork, whether it is a painting, a piece of music, a stage set, or a dance, the Elements and Principles of Design must be used to achieve certain effects.

  3. Elements The elements are parts which can be isolated and defined in any visual design. They are the structure or building blocks of a work of art, and can carry a wide variety of messages.

  4. LINE A mark on a surface that describes a shape or outline. It can create texture or shape and can be thick and thin.
