Introduction
The principles of art are the RULES of art. These rules need to be considered when making a piece of art. Master artists use the ELEMENTS of art to effectively express the PRINCIPLES of art in their artwork. The trick to being a good art evaluator is to discover where and how the art principles are used in master artworks. By studying these elements, your own work will become more sophisticated as you begin to apply this new knowledge to your own works of art.

Each group of 3 or 4 students will be assigned ONE of the following to research:

-Balance
-Variety vs. Unity / Harmony
-Emphasis (focal point)
-Contrast
-Repetition / Pattern
-Rhythm & Movement (compare and contrast)
-Proportion

You will become an expert on your element. You will create a PowerPoint presentation which will demonstrate what you have discovered in your research.

Now, let's begin our research.
