chalk flexible medium with a wide variety of tonal areas created. Heavy or light applications
charcoal a burnt wood product, is like chalk in that it requires paper with a rough surface to adhere.
graphite a form of carbon, like coal. the harder the lead, the lighter and more delicate it's mark.
pastel essentially a chalk medium in which colored pigment and non greasy binder have been combined
pen and ink fairly flexible. shading can be done by diluting ink. line and texture possibilities
wash and brush similar to watercolor, ink diluted and applied via brush
oils most popular of the painting media. wide range of color possibilities, slow drying allowing reworking.
watercolor broad category that uses water as a thinner. transparent paint ususally applied to paper.
gouache watercolor medium in which gum is added to ground opaque colors mixed with water. final product, in contrast to watercolor is opaque
tempera opaque watercolor medium whose use spans recorded history. ground pigments and their color binders such as gum or glue, but is best known as its egg tempera form. Colors appear almost gemlike in their clarity and brilliance
acrylics modern synthetic product. Most are water soluable and the binding agent for the pigment is an acrylic polymer.
fresco wall painting technique in which pigments suspended in water are applied to fresh wet plaster
relief printing the image is transferred to the paper by cutting away non-image areas and inking the surface that remains.
intaglio opposite relief printing. ink is transferred to the paper not from the raised areas but rather from the grooves cut into a metal plate.
line engraving cutting grooves into the metal plate with special sharp tools. sharp and precise results
etchings removes the surface of the plate by exposing it to an acid bath. the plate is covered by a thin waxlike substance called a ground, the artist scratches away the ground to produce the desired line
drypoint the surface of the metal plate is scratch with a needle. drypoint leaves a ridge called a burr on either side of the groove resulting in a fuzzy line
aquatint allows the artist to create areas of solid tone on an etching plate as well as gradation of tone from white through a range of grays to black
lithography starting with a smooth stone. draw the image on the stone with grease. cleaned then repainted with a grease based ink. the ink adheres only to the areas the artist chose
seriograph silk screening
5 elements of visual art line, form, color, mass and texture
4 principles of visual art repetition, balance, unity and focal area
line (visual art) basic building block of a visual design is
form (visual art) this and line are closely related both in definition and in effect. it is the shape of an object within the composition
color (visual art) hue, value and intensity
hue (visual art) specific color with a measurable wavelength
value (visual art) relationship of blacks to whites and grays
intensity (visual art) degree of purity of a hue, also known as chroma or saturation
mass (space) (visual art) only three dimensional objects have mass. two dimensional objects give the illusion of mass
texture (visual art) apparent roughness or smoothness
repetition (visual art) how the basic elements in the picture are repeated or alternated
rhythm (visual art) ordered recurrence of elements in a composition
harmony (visual art) elements appear to join naturally and comfortably
variation (visual art) relationship of repeated items to each other
symmetry (visual art) the balancing of like forms, mass and colors on opposite sides fo the vertical axis of the picture
unity (visual art) all elements of a composition work together toward meaning.
focal area (visual art) looking at a picture our eyes are drawn to the areas of greatest importance
perspective (visual art) tool to indicate spatial relationships of objects in pictures.

repetition (sculpture) rhythm, harmony and variation consititute this in sculpture
articulation (sculpture) the manner by which we move from one element to the next
