Evaluation of our members art work February 15, 2023

 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

              Unified

              Lost and found edges

              No large areas that are not varied
