“Using the elements and principles of design can turn the lay painter into an artist or the beginning home owner into an interior decorator. They are the concepts that make the world of art and living a more pleasant experience for the population as a whole. Not all of these pieces are used in every situation, but a combination of many are.” This is the last paragraph that Johns claims elements of design and principles makes possible. However, he has overlooked many issues. He says that a combination of pieces of art are used in almost every situation. I disagree and believe that many people do not enjoy art and will not turn into interior decorators or artists simply from using the elements and principles of design.
