What is Art?

the expression or application of human creative skill and

imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or
sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their
beauty or emotional power.

What is Modern Art?

- or Modernism is the loose term given to the succession of styles
and movements in art and architecture which dominated Western
culture from 19th Century up until the 1960's. Movements
associated with Modern art include Impressionism, Cubism,
Bauhaus, Surrealism, Futurism, Pop Art and Op Art.

What are the Elements of Art?

-A work of art can be analysed by considering a variety of aspects
of it individually. These aspects are often called the elements of
art. A commonly used list of the main elements include form, line,
color, space and texture.

- The form of a work is its shape, including its volume or perceived
volume. A three-dimensional artwork has depth as well as width
and height. Three-dimensional form is the basis of sculpture.[1]
However, two-dimensional artwork can achieve the illusion of
form with the use of perspective and/or shading or modelling
techniques.[2][3] Formalism is the analysis of works by their form
or shapes in art history or archeology.


Lines and curves are marks that span a distance between two
points (or the path of a moving point). As an element of visual art,
line is the use of various marks, outlines and implied lines in
artwork and design. A line has a width, direction, and length. A
line's width is sometimes called its "thickness".

Color is the element of art that is produced when light, striking an
object, is reflected back to the eye. There are three properties to
colour. The first is hue, which simply means the name we give to
a colour (red, yellow, blue, green, etc.).

Space is an area that an artist provides for a particular purpose.
Space includes the background, foreground and middle ground,
and refers to the distances or area(s) around, between, and within
things. There are two kinds of space: negative space and positive
space.[5] Negative space is the area in between, around, through
or within an object. Positive spaces are the areas that are
occupied by an object and/or form.

Texture, another element of art, is used to describe either the way
a work actually feels when touched, or the depiction of textures in
works, as for example in a painter's rendering of fur.

What is Principle of Art?

- They are used to organize the basic elements of art: line, shape,
form, value, color, space, and texture. They are sometimes also
referred to as principles of organization or design principles.
Another important element in creating art is composition.

movement, initially in poetry and painting,
originating in Germany at the beginning of the

solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it
radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas.

Pop art

mid-1950s in Britain and the late 1950s in the
United States. Among the early artists that shaped the pop art
movement were Eduardo Paolozzi and Richard Hamilton in Britain,

Popular music
The term popular music belongs to a number of musical genres
"having wide appeal"[1][2][3] and typically distributed to large
audiences through the music industry. These forms and styles can
be enjoyed and performed by people with little or no musical
training.[1] It stands in contrast to both art music[4][5][6] and
traditional or "folk" music. Art music was historically disseminated
through the performances of written music, although since the
beginning of the recording industry, it is also disseminated
through recordings. Traditional music forms such as early blues
songs or hymns were passed along orally, or to smaller, local

Pop music

is a genre of popular music that originated in its

modern form in the Western world during the 1950s and 1960s,

the former describes all music that is popular (and
can include any style).

Rhythm and blues, often abbreviated as R&B or
RnB, is a genre of popular African-American music that originated
in the 1940s.
