ART101 Artistic Elements and Principles Challenge

Artistic Elements and Principles

Using the Art Resources or any other links or resources, choose two works of art from two different cultures. They can be two or three-dimensional, or one of each. Compare and contrast the two works, using the artistic elements (line, shape, volume, space, value, color and texture) and principles (repetition, rhythm, scale, differences in visual balance, etc.) you’ve learned about in this learning pathway.

For example:

  • What are the artistic elements and principles that are used in each? You can refer to the subject matter in each work, but focus mainly on objective comparisons.
  • How do the compositions compare to each other? How are they similar? How are they different?

Whether or not you choose to share all of your work, share the Artistic Elements and Principles part of this challenge on the course topic discussion forum.
