Composition is the building block of art. Elements of art are components or work of arts. They can be isolated or defined. A line is an identifiable path created by a point moving in space. It is one dimensional and can vary in width, direction, and length. They define the edges of form. They also lead your eye around the composition and communicate information through character and direction. There are many lines and composition in art. The compositions are symmetrical and asymmetrical. Symmetrical is mirrored and asymmetrical is not. The lines are horizontal, vertical, horizontal and vertical combined, diagonal, structural, outlines, contour, gesture, and sketch. Horizontal is left to right while vertical is up and down. Diagonal lines slant on either side. Calligraphy is known as beautiful writing.
