Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Includes painting, drawing, graphic arts, and photography. Width, height, and illusion of depth on a flat surface.

    Explanation
    The given answer "2 dimensional, 2D" is correct because it accurately describes the concept of art forms that involve painting, drawing, graphic arts, and photography. These art forms are considered 2 dimensional or 2D because they are created on a flat surface and do not have the illusion of depth.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Includes sculpture, architecture, and most of the decorative arts. Width, height, and depth.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "3 dimensional, 3D" because sculpture, architecture, and most of the decorative arts are all forms of art that exist in three dimensions. They have width, height, and depth, which means they can be viewed from different angles and perspectives. The term "3D" is commonly used to describe objects or images that have a three-dimensional appearance, as opposed to being flat or two-dimensional.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

     A ____ a moving point on the surface of a canvas, a paper, a slab of clay, or other media. A ____ has a width as well as length. Contour uses a simple single line to describe a form.

    Explanation
    The given answer is "line line". In art, a line is a basic element that can be used to create shapes, forms, and textures. It is a moving point on a surface, such as a canvas or paper, and has both width and length. Contour, which is a technique used in drawing, uses a single line to outline and describe the form of an object. Therefore, the answer "line line" accurately describes the concept of using lines in art to create forms and contours.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    _____ line: A real line!   ______ line: What appears to be a line, but really isn’t a line! It’s a line in an artwork that is not particularly there but appears to be there.

    Explanation
    The term "actual" refers to something that is real and exists, while "implied" means something that is suggested or hinted at but not explicitly stated or present. In the context of the given question, the phrase "actual line" would refer to a real line that physically exists, while "implied line" would refer to a line that is suggested or perceived in an artwork but does not actually exist.

    Rate this question:

    _____: Flat, 2D. ______ is a 2D area, geometric or organic, defined by a boundary.

    Explanation
    A shape is a 2D area that is defined by a boundary. It can be either geometric, such as a square or a circle, or organic, such as the outline of a leaf or a cloud. The answer "shape shape" emphasizes the concept of a shape being flat and 2D, as well as its definition as an area with a boundary.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    ____/____: 3D, NOT FLAT! _____ are 3-dimensional shapes, geometric or organic, open or closed, having height, width, and depth. 

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "mass form forms". This answer correctly identifies that 3D shapes have mass, meaning they occupy space, and they have form, meaning they have a specific shape or structure. The use of the word "forms" emphasizes that these shapes can be geometric or organic, open or closed, and have height, width, and depth.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Volume: _______: There are obvious shapes in it. (_______ shape= A shape that is regular, easy to measure, and easy to describe, unlike an _______ shape, which is irregular, difficult to measure, and difficult to describe.   Volume: ______: The shapes aren’t so obvious, it’s more flowing. (_______ shape= A shape characteristic of living things and thus appearing soft, curvilinear and irregular. Contrast with _______ shape).

    Explanation
    The given answer is correct because it accurately identifies the shapes in the first volume as geometric shapes, which are regular, easy to measure, and easy to describe. In contrast, the shapes in the second volume are described as organic shapes, which are characteristic of living things and appear soft, curvilinear, and irregular. This explanation aligns with the definitions provided in the question.

    An artistic technique in which subtle gradations of value create the illusion of rounded three-dimensional forms in space; also termed modeling (from Italian for “light-dark”).

    Explanation
    Chiaroscuro is an artistic technique that involves using subtle gradations of value to create the illusion of rounded three-dimensional forms in space. It is also known as modeling, derived from the Italian words for "light-dark." This technique is commonly used in painting and drawing to add depth and dimension to the artwork by manipulating the contrast between light and shadow. Chiaroscuro is a fundamental element in creating realistic and visually striking compositions.

    Color; the distinctive characteristics of a color that enable us to label it (as blue or green, for example) and to assign it a place in the visible spectrum.

    Explanation
    Hue refers to the distinctive characteristics of a color that allow us to identify and categorize it. It is what enables us to label a color as blue, green, or any other specific shade. In terms of the visible spectrum, hue helps us determine where a particular color falls within the range of colors that we can perceive.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The degree of purity of hue measured by its intensity or brightness.

    Explanation
    Saturation refers to the degree of purity of a hue, measured by its intensity or brightness. It describes the vividness or richness of a color. When a color is fully saturated, it appears vibrant and pure, without any added white, gray, or black. On the other hand, desaturating a color by adding gray or black results in a decrease in its intensity and brightness. Saturation plays a crucial role in determining the overall visual impact and emotional response to a color.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The degree of darkness of a color determined by the extent of its mixture with black.

    Explanation
    The term "shade" refers to the degree of darkness of a color, which is determined by how much it is mixed with black. In other words, the more black is added to a color, the darker the shade becomes. This concept is commonly used in art, design, and other fields where color is important.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The lightness of a color as determined by the extent of its mixture with white.

    Explanation
    The term "tint" refers to the lightness of a color, which is determined by how much white is mixed with it. When a color is mixed with white, it becomes lighter and brighter, creating a tint. Tints are often used to create pastel colors or to add a sense of softness and delicacy to a color palette.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    ______ ______: The hue of an object created by the colors its surface reflects under normal lighting conditions (contrast with _____ color.) Color is natural rather than symbolic of the depicted objects. 

    Explanation
    The term "local color" refers to the actual color of an object as it appears in normal lighting conditions. It is the hue that is created by the colors reflected off the surface of the object. On the other hand, "optical color" refers to the use of color in a way that is not natural or realistic, but rather symbolic or expressive. In this context, the correct answer is "local color optical" because it contrasts the natural color of an object with the symbolic use of color.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    ______ _____: The perception of the color of an object, which may vary markedly according to atmospheric conditions.

  • 20. 

    The way things feel or appear to feel. 

    Explanation
    Texture refers to the tactile quality of a surface or the way something feels when touched. It can also refer to the visual appearance or the perceived feel of an object. This can include characteristics such as roughness, smoothness, softness, or hardness. Texture adds depth and interest to objects and surfaces, and it can be perceived through touch or visually.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    The actual texture of the paint.

    Explanation
    Impasto refers to a technique in painting where the paint is applied thickly and with visible brushstrokes, creating a textured surface. This technique allows the artist to add depth and dimension to their artwork, as the texture of the paint becomes an integral part of the overall composition. By using impasto, the artist can create a tactile and visually interesting surface that adds a sense of energy and movement to the painting.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    The illusion of texture! Like a painting of nails isn’t really pointy b/c it’s a painting, duh!

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "implied texture". This refers to the visual representation of texture in an artwork that is not physically present but is suggested through the use of various artistic techniques such as shading, brushstrokes, or patterns. In this case, the painting of nails is not actually pointy, but the artist has used techniques to create the illusion of texture, making it appear as if the nails have a rough or bumpy surface.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    There it is no illusion, it’s how it really feels. Ex: sculpture!

    Explanation
    The given answer "actual texture" is correct because it refers to the physical surface quality of an object. In this context, the statement suggests that the sculpture being referred to has a texture that can be perceived through touch or visually observed. The phrase "it's how it really feels" implies that the texture is not an illusion or a visual trick, but a tangible characteristic of the sculpture. Therefore, "actual texture" accurately describes the concept being conveyed in the statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Simulated texture in a work of art; the use of line, color, and other visual elements to create the illusion of various textures in flat drawings and paintings. Contrast with abstract texture.

    Explanation
    Visual texture refers to the technique used in art to create the illusion of different textures on a flat surface. Artists achieve this by using various visual elements such as line, color, and shading. By skillfully manipulating these elements, artists can make a two-dimensional artwork appear as if it has a three-dimensional texture. This technique adds depth and interest to the artwork, allowing viewers to visually experience different textures without actually being able to touch them. Contrastingly, abstract texture focuses on creating textures that do not necessarily resemble real-world objects or materials.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    The size of an object or figure in relation to other objects or figures or the setting.

    Explanation
    Relative size refers to the size of an object or figure in comparison to other objects or figures or the overall setting. It is a concept used to understand the scale and proportions of different elements in a scene or composition. By comparing the sizes of objects, we can determine their relative importance or distance from the viewer. This can be useful in various fields such as art, design, and photography to create a sense of depth, perspective, and hierarchy.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    An illusion of depth created through grades of texture and brightness, color saturation, and warm and cool colors. An indistinct or hazy effect produced by distance and the illusion of distance in visual art (the term derives from the recognition that the atmosphere between the viewer and the distant objects would cause the effect.)

    Explanation
    Atmospheric perspective refers to the technique used in visual art to create an illusion of depth and distance. It is achieved through various elements such as grades of texture and brightness, color saturation, and the use of warm and cool colors. The term "atmospheric" comes from the understanding that the atmosphere between the viewer and the distant objects would cause a hazy or indistinct effect. This technique is used to create a sense of depth and realism in a painting or drawing.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    Space is empty or filled with imagery that is secondary to the main objects or figures depicted in the composition. The space around and/or between the subject/s of an image.

    Explanation
    Negative space refers to the empty or unoccupied areas surrounding the main objects or figures depicted in an image. It is the space around and/or between the subjects of the composition. In other words, it is the background or the areas that do not contain the main focus of the image. Negative space is often used to create balance, emphasize the subject, or enhance the overall composition of the artwork.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    The spatial form defined by the objects or figures represented in works of art.

    Explanation
    Positive space refers to the area or space occupied by the objects or figures in a work of art. It is the actual presence of shapes and forms that are visually perceived as the main subject or focus. In other words, it is the physical presence of the objects themselves, as opposed to the background or negative space. Positive space is essential in creating a sense of balance, composition, and visual interest in a piece of art.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    ______/_____ motion: The passage of a body or an object from one place to another.

  • 30. 

    _______ motion: An impression of movement created by the use of visual elements, composition, or content. 

    Explanation
    Implied motion refers to the illusion or suggestion of movement in a still image or artwork. It is created through the use of visual elements such as lines, shapes, and composition, as well as the content or subject matter of the artwork. Implied motion can give the viewer a sense of action or dynamism, even though the image itself is static. It engages the viewer and adds a sense of energy and movement to the artwork.
