Last school year I tested my students and realized that they really weren't able to tell me the definition of composition or the elements of art. So, I wrote this song over the summer hoping that it will solve this problem.
Here are the lyrics:
Art is not accidental it comes skillful hands
Each piece of art is born of an artists' thoughtful plans
Listen close and you will hear the secret to great art
It's the intentional arrangement of the elements from the start
An artist needs to think about compositional design
Using color shape form texture value size and line
Try not to form your judgements too quickly
Recognize the intention of the artist in what you see
Tricia :) Don't forget to rate me.
