In simple terms, the elements of art are understood as the parts that make up a single work of art. There are typically seven primary elements of art namely; color, value, line, shape, form, texture, and space.
Value is another important art element that can greatly impact how color is perceived. Value refers to the light or dark quality of color. The color value can often be detected if an image is viewed in black and white to expose its grayscale values.
Form is another art element that relates to three dimensional structures. There are different types of forms that can range from spherical, cubic, pyramidal, conical, cylindrical, and many other types.
Line is found in almost all types of artworks and provides the fundamental structure for the subject. Lines can vary in shape and length, from short, long, vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines to curved, straight, thin, and thick lines.
