## Six elements of art design and the usage of these elements

F‌‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍or this assignment, read the following question and write a short paper of 300-500 words in MS Word .docx format.

Firstly, list the six elements of design. Then, describe the usage of the four of the six elements of design.  This is in Figure 2.5 Edgar Degas, After the Bath, Woman drying herself and in Figure 2.25 Jocho, Seated Buddha. It is an art image but I will attach what the text says about both.

Secondly, supposed to list the six elements of design first then show at how at least 4 elements are used in the sculpture ‘Jocho sitting buddha” and “After the bath women drying herself”. So just google images of those and explain how four of the six design elements are used in sitting buddah by Jocho and After the bath women drying herself by edgar degas. Six Elements of design re are six basic elements of design: line, shape, mass/volume, perspective, texture, and color. One way to think of these elements of design is to “walk up the ladder” of dimension. Our perceived world has three dimensions of space and one of time. Mathematically, a point has zero dimensions. A line has one dimension, length. A shapehas two dimensions, length and height. A form with mass or volume has three dimensions, length, height, and width.

Lastly, in moving from points to volumes, we have “walked up the ladder” of dimension from zero to three. In addition to the three dimensions of physical space, there are two more things artists can incorporate into a given work. They can introduce texture, and they can introduce color.
