5 Matching questions

  1. motif
  2. curvilinear shapes
  3. geometric shapes
  4. line quality
  5. rectilinear shapes
  1. a A subset of geometric shapes, produced using straight lines, usually parallel to the horizontal and vertical.
  2. b A designed unit that is repeated often enough in the total composition to make it a significant or dominant feature. Motif is similar to theme or melody in a musical composition. It is often referred to as the unit used in a pattern
  3. c Simple mechanical shapes defined by mathematical formulas, which can be produced using the implements found in geometry sets: triangles, rectangles, and circles
  4. d Shapes based on the sinuous organic shapes found in nature.
  5. e A characteristic of line determined by its weight, direction, uniformity, or other features

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. The unoccupied space in the picture. Traditionally, the ground is a negative shape (or shapes) and the figure a positive shape.
  2. The placement of elements in a composition so that they imply completion beyond the boundary of the picture plane, or give the appearance of infinite space
  3. in a landscape, the space we see in the distance--the sky, mountains, or distant hills. In a still life or interior portrait, it is the area behind the subject
  4. The values located in the center of a achromatic or chromatic scale. Mid-tones are values that are midway between black and white
  5. A line that crosses and defines the surface undulations between, or up to, the outermost edges of shapes or objects

5 True/False questions

  1. rhythmnis the totality of light where all rays are reflected (subtractive)


  2. perspective (linear)Where the creation of elements, or their combination produces a objective or non-objective figure or field against a ground.


  3. varietyDifferences achieved by opposing, contrasting, changing, elaborating, or divesifying elements in a composition to add individualism and interest; the counterweight of harmony in art


  4. one-point perspectiveA system of spatial illusion based on the convergence of parallel lines at a single vanishing point, usually on the horizon; only appropriate to interiors or vistas. Within one-point perspective vertical lines remain vertical to the picture plane and horizontal lines remain horizontal to the picture plane


  5. overlappingA depth cue, in which some shapes are in front of and partially hide or obscure others.
