Elements of Design — The seven elements of design — value, color, form, shape, line, space, and texture — are each explored and clearly explained with diagrams and hands‑on demonstrations, including paintings, collages, and sculpture by Gerald Brommer in this video. Examples of elements seen in nature, architecture, and art reinforce the concepts. 30 minutes.
