This secondary art presentation on the elements and principles of art includes a Mini-Composition Lesson that goes into depth on the element of Shape and the principle of Emphasis.
The lesson describes the element of shape and the principle of emphasis through the use of artist's work and how they create emphasis in their work. Students will create thumbnail designs each showing emphasis using a different method; Placement, Direction/Movement, Size and Color. They will then use those thumbnails to create a final composition cut from paper. Students will self-evaluate based on the criteria creating emphasis using the 4 methods described above.
