Re: intermediate/tertiary

I find a lot of "gray" areas in ArtEd. When I teach color theory, I use the
term "intermediate/tertiary" and explain to the students that they are
synonomus and refer to the same concept. I also find that when looking for
lists of the elements of art and principles of design, no two sources list
the same terms. It gets very confusing from year to year if I use different
resources to teach these terms. I attribute this to the fact that the visual
arts is not a "cast in stone" exact science and plunge ahead to try and get
the students to understand the vocabulary of elements and principles and use
these terms when critiquing works. I find the elements are easier to
explain. Students seem to find the idea and application of some of the
principles difficult. Any ideas?
