STEM/STEAM Integration


The elements of design are line, shape, form, space, color, value, and texture. The principles of design are balance, pattern, movement, rhythm, contrast, emphasis, and unity. Many creative disciplines incorporate the elements and principles of design. Research the elements and principles of design and create a digital presentation of your findings.

Visit an online museum of your choice and select at least three creative examples. Place the creative examples in your presentation and decipher the elements and principles used. Using computer-based design and painting software create a portfolio of original compositions that showcase each element and principle. Your compositions can combine elements and principles. Write a brief description of each composition and how the elements and principles were used in the composition. You may want to select a theme for your compositions to give your work focus, though not required. Examples of themes are: love, war, compassion, persuasion, protest, nature, fear, and peace. Create a poster that combines elements and principles of design in a way that enhances the emotional impact of a theme and subject. Show your poster and portfolio to an audience for creative criticism. Create a timeline of your progress through this problem.
