PORTFOLIO Shape, Form,
The elements of shape, form, and space are closely
related. Each is defined by the others. A square stretched
into a third dimension becomes a cube. A pyramid squashed
flat becomes a triangle. The area around and between these
shapes and forms is space. As you examine the student
works on this page:
Compare and contrast the elements of shape, form, and space.
Analyze the use of these formal qualities in artworks, forming
precise conclusions about their relationships to one another. Activity 5.38 Geometric form. What
geometric form is used to create the hat in
this portrait? Identify specific art techniques
that were used to give depth to this and
other forms. Activity 5.39 Positive and negative
space. Compare the artist’s use of positive
and negative space. Which objects in the
work are figure, and which are ground?
What mood is suggested by the interaction
between the positive and negative space? FIGURE 5.38

Select and Analyze Portfolios. As you begin to build
your portfolio of artworks, it can be useful to evaluate
the work of your peers and others. Work with your
teacher to compile a collection of portfolios. Select and
analyze these portfolios by peers and other artists to
form precise conclusions about formal qualities (the
elements and principles of art), historical and cultural
contexts, intents, and meanings. Store your evaluations
in your portfolio. Shapes and forms are
everywhere. They make
up the environment. As
you walk or ride through
your community, keep an
eye open for shapes and
forms. Notice the space
around them and how
forms extend into threedimensional space. Draw
and label these shapes,
forms, and spaces in your
visual journal. STUDENT ART PORTFOLIO Shape, Form, and Space 129 FIGURE 5.41
