Unit 1- exercise 6 (criterion 3)


Olive Cotton’s Tea Cups

Visual elements art are the things that make up an image. They include line, tone, shape, form, colour, space and texture. Have a look at this powerpoint which explains how these ‘things’ function together to create images.





Edward Weston’s Cabbage

Task: 1) In your visual diary, create a heading for each of these elements and collect a selection of images which demonstrate what they are.

Task 2) Using a digital camera, take 7 shots which demonstrate each element. Once again, the subject matter is entirely up to you but if you do feel stuck, you can choose from one of these topics;

The urban landscape, nature, portraiture, inanimate objects, vegetables, school.
