The elements of design - line, shape, value, color, form, space, and texture - are explored and clearly explained with diagrams and hands-on demonstrations. Examples in nature, architecture, and art reinforce the concepts. In addition, see how the elements of design are used and combined in the principles of design: contrast, rhythm, emphasis, pattern, movements, balance, and unity. Demonstrations are combined with diagrams, artwork, and examples from nature. A menu is provided so that you can go right to whichever element or principle you want.
