RE: Elements, Principles & Artists


Date: Thu Apr 22 2004 - 06:55:23 PDT

Sometimes I compare the P&E's to English...

it takes lines to create letters that become shapes, to create words, etc....and then the way they are put together for sentences, phrases, paragraphs, etc.

> I explain the elements as the basic building blocks of a piece of artwork and the principles as the way in which the artist puts the elements together. I often use the analogy of the foundation of a house and the framework. Linda in NC
