Introduction to Art And Design

The word ‘Art ‘means the application of skill and taste to the production of beautiful things. A simple house can be made to look attractive by decorating its interiors tastefully. Almost every human being has some natural ability to recognize beauty and suitability in interiors and in arrangement of their furnishings. Interior decoration is an art of adjusting the space, furnishings and equipment to suit the fundamental and cultural needs of the family members and thus creating a pleasant atmosphere. This art or talent can be developed by observation, study, experience and developing skills in creative art.

A design is a visual plan used in creating beauty. Everything an individual visualizes has a design and we use words that tell about the lines, shapes, colors, textures and patterns to explain the design. The basic elements of art are the lines, shapes, colors, textures, patterns and space. The knowledge of elements of design are important to everyone who works in home interiors, wood working, photography, landscaping, architecture, and the visual arts. An individual who understands the design elements will be more successful in designing projects.
