• 1) Below, define the following words.

     

    balance- a principle of design in which all of the elements of a work of art are distributed evenly.

     

    symmetric

     

    symmetrical-  a type of  balance that is achieved by arranging elements on either side of the center of a composition in an equally weighted manner. Symmetrical balance can be thought of as 50/50 balance or like a mirror image. In other words, the image would look the same on either side of the center. If you drew an imaginary line down the center, the image would be the same on either side.

     

    asymmetrical- Asymmetrical balance in art is when each half is different but has equal visual weight. The artwork is still balanced.

     

     

     

    radial

     

    radial-  is any type of balance based on a circle with its design extending from the center.

     

     

    sculptures- A sculpture is an object made by an artist that operates in three dimensions. Most of the time you can walk around a sculpture and view it from all sides.

     

    pattern-  is an element (or set of elements) that is repeated in a piece of artwork.

     

    two-dimensional- The artwork possesses the dimensions of length and width but does not possess depth. The artwork appears flat. Most 2-dimensional pieces of art, such as drawings, paintings, and prints, are made up of shapes.

     

    three-dimensional- The artwork possesses the dimensions of length, width, and depth. Most of the time the artwork can be seen from all sides. Most 3-dimensional pieces of art, such as sculpture and pottery, are described using the term form.

     

    collaborate- to work together to produce or create something.
