Near & Dear

In class, I had to take 2 pictures of someone who is near and dear to me. I chose my older brother. He is important to me because he is literally my best friend. Being not really able to go out, we spend a lot of time together playing sports and things like that. My love of sports came from watching him when I was younger, and he taught me how to play baseball and also how to throw and catch a football.  We play baseball and football a lot, but we also just hang out and stuff. we talk a lot about baseball and pretty much anything. He’s the funniest person I’ve ever met and cracks everyone up.



Elements of Art

The elements of art are the building blocks of visual art. There are 6 elements.



Line is the path of a point moving through space


Shape / Form



Colors all come from the three primaries and black and white. They have three
properties – hue, value, and intensity



Value refers to relative lightness and darkness and is perceived in terms of varying levels of contrast.



Texture refers to the tactile qualities of a surface (actual) or to the visual representation of such surface qualities (implied).


Space / Perspective

Space refers to the area in which art is organized. Perspective is representing a volume of space or a 3-dimensional object on a flat surface.
