CES students learn balance, emphasis in artwork

Campbellsville Elementary School students recently learned about balance and emphasis in artwork.

 

In Adrienne Hash’s art class, students studied “Butterfly” by Andy Warhol and discussed how the artist created symmetrical balance in his work.

 

As with real butterflies, Hash told her students, the painting is symmetrical.

 

Emphasis is created in artwork, she said, when the artist uses colors to bring attention to something or someone in a painting or drawing.

 

After the lesson, students colored their own butterflies with symmetrical patterns and then created emphasis by gluing them on black construction paper.
