Bringing a Picture to Life: The Seven Elements of Art
Katie Madison, author
In the book, Courageous Kate and Super Joe have an assignment to create a picture of their favorite destination. To start, they think about all the different things that go into a picture and describe them as they go along, with the words of the components bolded to stand out. Throughout the story, the characters discuss each of the seven elements – line, shapes, color, value, texture, space and form – with all of them summarized at the end, to show how they work together to create unity.
