In graphic design and advertising the following is true:
The more obvious the focal point, the easier to see the message
The more complicated the pattern, the more necessary a focal point may become in organizing the design:
In pictures, perspective lines can lead to a point of emphasis
A definite focal point is necessary in creating a successful design
The bull's - eye of a dartboard would be the simplest illustration of an absolute focal point.
Studying art from all periods, regions, and cultures introduces you to a wealth of visual creations that equip you to discover your own solutions to design problems.
Artists and designers do not have to submit to the critical review of other people, peers or clients.
A critique in a studio can take several forms. One of the most usual ones is:
The entire class reviews the work together
A good way to get started in solving a design problem is to:
Think about all of the choices
The process of looking includes observing both nature and human artifacts.
When we combine both large and small scale in a composition the result is:
A dramatic contrast
One of the least important considerations in scale and proportion is the study of the size and scale of elements within the design.
Proportion is best compared to:
The Mathematical system of numerical ratios
In past centuries the size of a figure was often based on the symbolic importance in the subject being presented. This is also known as:
We don't think of the artistic scale of the work itself as it stands in relation to other art or human size.
The principle of unity with variety is always conscious and planned.
Without unity a composition becomes:
Chaotic and unreadable
Repetition in unity means:
Something repeats in various parts of the design
Continuation means that our eye searches for a break in unity.
An easy way to gain unity is by proximity, simply placing elements close together.
Varied line quality can define three-dimensional form, create emphasis, and transform a flat piece of paper into a spatial experience.
Motion is most strongly suggested by:
A Diagonal line
A description of a form in which an object is revealed by distinct contours in some areas whereas other edges simply vanish or dissolve into the ground is also known as:
More sophisticated line usage can help us see:
Dark and light
A horizontal line implies repose.
The linear technique one chooses has no emotional or expressive qualities tied to the final art work.
Line is able to convey emotional and expressive qualities.
When a line is used to follow the edges of forms, to describe their outlines, the result is called:
A contour drawing
A psychic line is a:
Mental connection between two elements
Linear application of paint can never be seen as brushstrokes.
In abstraction, details are ignored as the shapes are reduced to their simplest terms.
Idealism reproduces the worlds exactly as it is. No distortion is observed.
Lack of subject matter eliminates emotional content in the image.
The negative space, often the background, does not need to be as carefully planned as the positive or object form.
In art, naturalism is what most people most often call:
None of the above
Rounded and curving forms that tend to imply flowing shapes and compositions are called:
Shapes with no object reference and no subject matter suggestion are said to be:
In using distortion, the artist accidently redistributes details and reforms the images of nature back to naturalism.
Straight edged compositions with a sharp angular feeling are called:
A shape is a visually perceived area created by an enclosing line or by color or value changes defining the outer edge.
Texture refers to the surface quality of objects.
Applying thick layers of pigment upon a flat surface is called:
Texture varies from pattern in that its variations do not involve such perfect:
A deception occurs when the appearance of a painted object is so skillfully reproduced that we are momentarily fooled. This is called:
Interesting visual textures can sometimes be created using frottage.
The essential distinction between texture and pattern seems to be whether the surface arouses our sense of touch or merely provides designs appealing to the eye.
The collage technique is excellent for beginners because:
All of the choices
Pattern can be intricate, but never simple.
Humankind's earliest discoveries relating to the cosmos came with the recognition of the patterns of:
Seasons and lunar cycles
Fractal patterns are never found in nature.
A spatial device in which elevation on the page or format indicates a recession into depth is called:
Amplified perspective reproduces the visual image but in a very special view that occurs when an item is:
Pointed directly at the viewer
In multipoint perspective we find that different objects will have separate sets of vanishing points.
To suggest great height, such as looking up or down a city skyscraper, we would use:
When overlapping is combined with size differences the spatial sensation is greatly increased.
No objects are parallel to the picture plane, and all edges recede to two points on the horizon line This is the definition of:
The artist has the choice of showing us a complete scene or a partial glimpse of a portion of the scene that continues beyond the format. This is called blank canvas and formulated canvas.
In one-point perspective, a single point is placed on the horizon line, and all the lines of objects at right angles to the plane of the composition:
Converge towards that one point
One-point perspective helps show us:
Another name for aerial perspective is:
The word that identifies the color of an object seen under ordinary daylight is:
Color from pigments, when combined to form new colors are based on the:
Warm colors tend to__________, while cool colors tend to ____________.
The three primary colors are red, yellow and blue. Secondary colors are mixtures of the 2 primary colors. When we mix a primary color with an adjacent secondary color we make:
When artists place two pure colors side by side in small areas so the viewers eye at a certain distance will do the mixing we call this:
The second property of color, which refers to its lightness or darkness is called:
If you answered question #9 correctly, then you might also know another name for the third property of color. It is:
Areas of emphasis in a work of art create visual interest and are carefully planned by the artist. It can be said that the use of color as emphasis usually dominates other devices.
Adding white to a color creates a shade. Adding black to a color produces a tint.
Colors also relate to a physical sensation. Hence we say there is such a thing as "warm" and "cool" colors.
This term is the name for the psychological compensation for changes in light when observing a color. A viewer interprets the color to be the same under various light conditions.
In understanding intensity, you discover that there are only 2 ways to make a color less bright or more neutral. The first way is to mix gray with the color. The second way is to:
Mix a color with its complement
An analogous color scheme combines several hues that:
Sit next to each other on the color wheel
To create visual balance, the objects within a composition should have equal weight or attraction. Color is never used to achieve this effect.
A triadic color scheme is when we use three colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel.
Today's artists and students owe a great debt to this twentieth-century artist who as a painter and teacher devoted a career to the study of color and color relationships.
Because of dust in the atmosphere and range of vision, objects as they recede in space become:
Bluish and more neutral
Color from light combines and forms new color visual sensations based on the:
There are three main properties of color. The first, which refers to the name of the spectrum color is called:
The third property of color, which refers to the brightness of a color is called:
Asymmetrical balance is actually more intricate and complicated to use then symmetrical balance.
When a composition is weighted with an imagined axis to divide top from bottom we see this employed.
Asymmetrical balance can be achieved manipulating amounts of value and color.
In using value to achieve asymmetrical balance we would need to use a larger amount of black to visually balance a smaller amount of gray.
One reason symmetrical balance appeals to us is because it sometimes reminds us of the human figure.
Static or formal balance is not a characteristic that is often desired in some art, especially not in architecture.
In accessing pictorial balance, we always assume a center vertical axis and usually expect to see some type of equal weight. This creates a sense of:
In asymmetrical balance, balance can be also be achieved by:
Position and eye direction
Pick the correct definition of radial balance.
All the elements radiate or circle out from a common central point
Imbalance becomes a useful tool when the artist wishes to raise an uneasy, disquieting response in the viewer.
Allover pattern is also known as:
If 2 shapes in a composition had exactly the same value and texture and the only difference was their shape. Which of the following would be true?
A smaller form would attract the viewers if its contours or edges are more complicated
Any visual texture with a variegated dark and light pattern holds more interest for the eye that does a smooth, unrelieved surface.
The majority of works of art:
Employ several of the techniques to create balance
Symmetrical balance which has similar shapes repeated on either side of a vertical axis is also called:
The most common source within art for symmetrical balance is:
Balance that is achieved with dissimilar objects that have equal visual weight or equal eye attention is also known as:
The Principle of balance refers to distribution of visual weight within a composition.
Which is an example of a radial design?
The most complex rhythmic structure we can ascribe to an artwork, or a musical piece for that matter, is a _____________:
In art, like music, some rhythms could be called spiccato, which means:
Broken and choppy
Rhythm is a design principle based on:
Only nonobjective shapes are capable of producing an undulating rhythm.
Which of the following is a type of rhythm:
Most often we think of think of rhythm in the context of shapes and their arrangement.
The design principle of this chapter refers to the movement of the viewer's eye, a movement across recurrent motifs providing the repetition inherent in the idea of rhythm.
When a visual experience actually stimulates one of our other senses, the effect is called:
Rhythm provides visual unity.
In design, an alternating rhythm would mean that motifs alternate consistently with one another to produce a:
A regular and anticipated sequence is what type of rhythm?
Rhythm is a term we most often associate with:
Progressive rhythm is often found in nature.
In art, like music, we use descriptive words like legato.
Rhythm involves a clear repetition of elements that change radically.
We can see a familiar example of alternating rhythm in a building with columns or the architectural placement of windows on a facade
Progressive rhythm is:
Repetition of a shape that changes in a regular manner
A bouncing, alternating rhythm can be produced by vibrating colors and alternating the direction of line and shape.
Drawings, such as those created by El Lissitzky and Kasimir Malevich, both of the Russian Suprematism movement, utilize a jumpy arrangement of shapes we compare to the delicate and quiet sound of dove's wings.
An artistic arrangement that uses fixtures to and props to showcase merchandise.
discuss the roman contributions to architecture. include examples.
The nazi bombing of this defenseless town in Spain prompted Pablo Picasso to paint this monumental painting of the same name in protest of this atrocity:
The term action painting refers to the fact that this new type of painting:
