GEOMETRIC SHAPES are shapes that can be measured. Think geometry!
Geometric shapes include circles, squares, rectangles, triangles and ellipses.
Geometric forms include cones, cubes, cylinders, slabs, pyramids and spheres.

ORGANIC SHAPES are free-flowing shapes found in nature or are any shapes that are NOT geometric. These shapes cannot be measured.


What is a line?

A line is a continuous mark made on a surface. Line varies in width, direction and length.
If a line meets back up with itself it becomes a shape.

Curvalinear, zig-zag, straight, thin, thick, dark, light, soft, hard, vertical, horizontal, diagonal, parallel, short, long, broken, bent, tapered, free-hand.
