Elements of Art: are the basic building blocks of art. The elements of art are: line, shape, color, value, form, texture, and space. Every artwork is made up of some (if not all) of these elements.
Principles of Design: are concepts that artists consider when arranging the elements of art. Mastering the principles can help artists make more successful decisions about how they choose to organize the elements. The principles of design are: balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm, and unity. The way the principles are applied affects the overall “look” and “feel” of a piece of art.
