The Structure of Art
purpose: Explain how artists use different materials to make art. Two examples are (a) how artists use different drawing materials to create different kinds of line and (b) how sculptors use additive or subtractive methods to create mass and volume. This assignment will guide you to apply the concepts and vocabulary in the textbook to actual artworks.
Look through the list of drawings and sculptures in the Drawings and Sculpture: the Structure of Art presentation. Choose either a drawing or a sculpture to discuss. Make sure to pay attention the materials the artists used when making your choice.
In your post, first identify the work you are writing about and include an image/screenshot.
If you choose a drawing, your discussion post will have two parts:
For the first part, explain what materials were used to create the drawing using the vocabulary in your textbook (188.8.131.52) – the terms you see in bold. You will find the materials used listed in the identification, with the artwork’s title and artist. Explain what characteristics these specific media have.
For the second part of the discussion, use the textbook material on the elements of design (2.5.1) Describe the elements of design that you see used in the work.

For the second part of the discussion use the textbook material on the principles of design (2.5.2). Describe the principles of design that you see used in the work.
Your post should be at least 150 words.
