An introduction to the concept of art

Making Art Accessible

The goal of art education for young children is to develop and sustain their natural curiosity, expressiveness, and creativity. Art education begins with a foundation that emphasizes exploration, experimentation, engagement of the senses, and discussion as paths to understanding.

20th century

The beginning of the 20th century is recognized as a period of revolution and change in art. Artists introduced a variety of new art styles, which not only broke with the artistic traditions of the past, but also pointed the way for future innovations. Europe was the birthplace for many movements, such as Fauvism, Cubism, Purism, and Futurism.

Ιμπρεσιονισμός, Ρεαλισμός, Σουρεαλισμός

Art is typically broken down into what is known as art movements. An art movement is a tendency or style in art with a specific common philosophy or goal, followed by a group of artists. Let’s have a look at major art movements that influenced art in modern society.


Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface. In art, the term describes both the act and the result, which is called a painting.

Colour - Χρώματα

Color is one of the most expressive elements, because its quality affects our emotions directly and immediately. Color theory encompasses a multitude of definitions, concepts and applications. However, there are three basic categories of color theory: the color wheel, color harmony, and the context of how colors are used.

Elements of Art, Line art, Value-Element of Art

The elements of art are the building blocks of art creation. In art, there are 7 elements: line, shape, form, texture, value, color, and space are the basic elements we find in all artwork. These building blocks or ingredients are the visual language of art.
