Principles of Design & Our First Project

Today we had a presentation and much discussion on the Principles of Design. We developed an acronym to recall the seven terms:

B           Balance             Four types of Visual Balance (SARA)
         Symmetrical
         Approximate
         Radial
         Approximate
U           Unity
M           Movement
P           Pattern
V           Variety
E           Emphasis
R           Rhythm       Five types of Rhythm (FAR2P)
       Flowing
       Alternating
       Random
       Regular
       Progressive

We then discussed our first project. We will use unique shapes or motif to create an interesting composition that uses color, rhythm, space, and variety.
