Design involves purposeful decision-making about using the elements and principles of art in an integrative way. In Art Exploration 7, students will use the creative process and language of art to communicate through a variety of media and techniques. Students will purposefully apply the elements of art (line, space, shape, texture, color, value) and the principles of design (unity/ variety, balance, emphasis, contrast, rhythm, repetition, proportion/scale, and occupied/unoccupied space) to express an intended idea through drawing, clay and painting.
