Carol Kessler Handed out an evaluation worksheet for this session and about 15 art works were discussed for things that were good about them and things that would make them even better.
Here is the evaluation sheet:
TAKING A LOOK AT YOUR ART
Notes by Carol Kessler
There are many sources out there that tell you about art composition from the basics that go into an art work, rules usually to follow, and evaluating the finished product. Not all agree or use the same terms.
As I look at my work, I try to ask myself many questions as well as have a practicing artist(s) that has the education to also evaluate it before I consider it finished.
Have I used good practices involving the elements and principles of design, the building blocks of art:
ELEMENTS- THE BASICS
Line (horizontal, vertical, diagonal, curved, thick, thin)
Color (color wheel, hue, intensity, value)
Texture (smooth, rough, soft, hard)
Shape or Form (round, angular, combination, length, width, depth)
Space (actual, illusion, placement, detail, color, perspective)
PRINCIPALS—HOW THE ELEMENTS ARE USED
Balance (symmetrical, asymmetrical, weight)
Emphasis (centers of interest)
Harmony (repetition, gradual changes)
Variety (diversity and change)
Movement (moving the viewer’s eye)
Rhythm- (repetition to create a visual tempo or best)
Unity (overall concept of all working together)
BASIC RULES FOR REPRESENTATIONAL ART
One, three, five or more
Asymmetrical balance is more interesting.
Place center of interest in one intersection of the grid
Lost and found edges
No large areas that are not varied
