CAF Basic Skill Level Goals
Novice Art Lessons begin an "art start" by focusing on understanding Art through its Design Elements and Design Principles ~ learning Art's basic creating language.
Projects emphasize the Design Elements of space, line, shape, form, texture, color, and value; and, the Design Principles of balance, emphasis, contrast, movement, pattern, repetition, proportion, rhythm, variety, and unity.
The combination of the Design Elements are endless and this introduction in learning Art's language is part of every level of artistic expression. Design Principles add greater distinctions in portraying individual artistic expressions that show the preferences, uniqueness, and style of the artist within and in their use of the design elements!
