• The principle of art that repeats elements in a work of art to create a visual tempo.

  • Elements or motifs (patterns) are combined to create a series of regular pauses (stops and starts) for the viewer’s eye similar to the way a drum beat creates a series of pauses for the listener’s ears.

  • Compositional Movement- A path that the viewer’s eye is directed to follow because of the arrangement of elements in an artwork.

  • Static- The opposite of visual rhythm. Showing no movement or action taking place.
