Principles of Design in Teaching Art

by Irene Rinta

Anybody can do art. My approach in teaching art is to start with the basic principles of design and not the rules becasue the rules will follow naturally. It is by learning the principles that anybody's art can be made to communicate to its audience, be it...

"movement" as in a signage

"proportion" as in a historical painting conveying power

"balance" as in a sculpture

"emphasis" as in capturing weather in a photo

"harmony" as in a mural with many elements organized to depict one moment of political situation

"proportion" as in a portrait

"pattern" as in fabric design

"repetition" as in a drawing of a ball springing out
