The elements of art are kinda’ a big in deal in my art teacher-y opinion. They are the basics, the bread and butter of making and talking about art. Use these elements of art posters and huge bundle of other resources to get started ASAP!
Until I got to college I can honestly say my knowledge of the element of form consisted of making little cubes and those clever bubble letters that looked vaguely thee dimensional. I know for certain I could not have told what really qualified something to be a “form” as opposed to a shape.
For kids learning the elements of art is kind of like learning their ABC’s. The elements are simple little ideas, pieces that work together to make something bigger. Teaching the elements of art for kids doesn’t need to be intimidating.
The element of space is a pretty special one. It’s that secret ingredient that makes art go from coloring book outlines to art that looks like you could reach out and touch it.
The elements of art are, well, pretty basic. Any older elementary student should be familiar with these concepts. Most kids will know these terms even if they don’t formally recognize them as special “elements of art!”
