This term we have focused on two important art elements – line and colour.
What we have learned about line….
Line is the path created when an object moves from one point to another. Lines can be horizontal, vertical, diagonal, straight, curved or free form. They can be thick or thin, light or dark and sometimes one line can be all of those things.
When lights hits an object some of it is absorbed and some of it is reflected, depending on the materials that the object is made of. The light that is reflected off the object is what we see as an objects colour.
The primary colours are red, yellow and blue. The secondary colours are orange, green and purple. The warm colours are red, yellow and orange. The cool colours are blue, green and purple. The complementary colours are red + green, yellow + purple and orange + blue.
Each person was given an A4 piece of paper broken into six squares. Our task was to use the different types of lines to create an eye-catching design in a given space.
We then needed to apply the information we learned about colour to our artwork. Our goal was to make sure each box was coloured using the following as a guide:
- Box One – Primary Colours
- Box Two – Secondary Colours
- Box Three – Warm Colours
- Box Four – Cool Colours
- Boxes Five and Six – Complementary Colours
Finally, we cut our boxes out and framed them onto black card.
And here are some of the finished products!
