Dedication
This is dedicated to all learners & teachers of art.

Introduction
The elements & principles of art, also known as the
elements & principles of design, open our eyes to the
beauty that is in us & all around us. The elements &
principles of art are the building blocks of understanding
& creating art that expresses and moves us. That is the
reason I call them the ABCs of Art. Just as the letters of
any alphabet are fundamental to understanding that
language, the elements & principles of art are fundamental
to understanding the language of art.
