|About the book|| |
By using more color fine art reproductions than any other text to illustrate the concepts of design, Ocvirk introduces students to both the fundamental elements of art and to the rich and varied history of their uses.
Art Fundamentals offers a wealth of full color and black-and-white fine art reproductions and a rich Instructor?s Resource Manual but still remains the best value on the market.
This new edition exposes students to a more diverse range of aesthetic and cultural perspectives and brings in more examples from the contemporary scene.
|Key features|| |
Nearly 120 of the text?s 460 illustrations total are new to edition.
This edition reflects a greater diversity of media and artists, including multicultural, non-western, and women.
The chapter on FORM, especially on the principles of organization, has been greatly expanded, giving students a better grasp of this key design element.
The balance of theoretical foundations and practical applications has been improved, as seen, for example, in the discussion of color theory and the practical realities of mixing pigment.
The last chapter on 19th and 20th century styles has been thoroughly updated for the contemporary period.
Each chapter begins with a detailed outline of topic headings and is followed by a boxed glossary of chapter vocabulary.
The extensive Instructor?s Resource Manual offers projects to help students to develop an understanding of design principles.
The book concludes its study of design elements and principles by placing them in an historical context.
The chronological timeline of Western art history at the end of the book reinforces the text's emphasis on the historical context of design.
