A. Value
Explanation
Value refers to the lightness or darkness of a color. It determines how light or dark a color appears on a scale from white to black. Value is an important aspect in art and design as it helps create contrast, depth, and dimension in an artwork. By adjusting the value of a color, artists can create different moods and visual effects in their compositions.

C. Form
Explanation
Form refers to the three-dimensional nature of objects, including their height, width, and thickness. It is the physical structure and shape of an object that distinguishes it from other objects. In this context, form is the most appropriate term to describe the three-dimensional quality of objects, as color, shape, and value do not encompass the notion of depth or thickness.

Explanation
Color is the visual perception of different wavelengths of light. When light waves interact with objects, they can be absorbed, transmitted, or reflected. The reflected light that reaches our eyes determines the color we perceive. Therefore, the statement suggests that the phenomenon of light waves being absorbed or reflected by everything around us is what allows us to see color.

A plan for selecting colors for a composition is known as a color scheme. A color scheme refers to the selection and arrangement of colors in a design or artwork to create a specific visual effect or convey a particular mood or message. It involves choosing colors that harmonize and complement each other, such as complementary colors, analogous colors, or monochromatic colors. A color scheme helps to create a cohesive and balanced composition by guiding the use of colors in a deliberate and intentional way.

Colours are said to be contrasting if they are____________.

• A.

Different in lightness and darkness.

• B.

Light inn value.

• C.

Dark in value.

• D.

Bright and intense.

A. Different in lightness and darkness.
Explanation
Contrasting colors are those that have a noticeable difference in lightness and darkness. This means that one color appears lighter while the other appears darker. This contrast creates visual interest and helps to define shapes and objects. Colors that are light in value or dark in value may also be contrasting, but the most accurate description is that contrasting colors are different in lightness and darkness. Brightness and intensity are not necessarily indicators of contrasting colors, as they refer to the overall saturation and vibrancy of a color rather than its lightness or darkness.

Value

Pattern

• C.

Texture

• D.

Shape

C. Texture
Explanation
Texture is the art element that refers to the sense of touch. It is the perceived surface quality of an artwork, whether it is smooth, rough, bumpy, or soft. Texture can be actual, where the surface of the artwork has a physical texture, or it can be implied, where the artist creates the illusion of texture through the use of various techniques such as shading or brushstrokes. Texture adds depth and interest to an artwork, allowing the viewer to visually experience the tactile qualities of the piece.
