A line is the space or time between
two points. Lines may be expressed or implied, but like points,
they are real.
- In visual art, a line is a shape that is longer than
it is wide. It may be thick or thin, straight or curved, solid or broken,
explicit or implied.
- In audible art, a line is a series of notes, phrases,
and/or measures. A line here is always explicit.
- In written art, a line is a phrase, a sentence,
a series of sentences, or a paragraph.
Three or more points define a shape, the subject of our next lesson.
