Its components are design and medium. The former denotes the compositional means of organizing the artifact's elements to realize its visual expression, whereas the latter describes either the material or the form of art (Garth, 2012). The design of art determines its form through its various properties, which exhibit different characteristics. These principles include the direction, which can either be horizontal, oblique, or vertical, the line, which is either curved or straight, the shape, which results from curved or straight lines or a combination of the two, and the size, which determines the magnitude, length, and thickness of the object (“The Elements of Design,” n.d.). Additionally, design stipulates the color, which can be warm or cool, the degree of light, texture, which can be smooth or rough, and the mass of the works.
