When lines meet to form enclosed areas, they are called shapes. Shapes are created through lines, textures, colors, or enclosed areas of other shapes such as triangles, circles, and squares. There are different types of shapes; these include Geometric and organic, positive and negative, and representation.

The geometric shapes are shapes with consistent mathematical curves; they include circles, squares, spirals, triangles, and so on, while organic shapes are shapes that have unpredictable forms. These shapes include plants, the sky, the sea, and the natural world.

Positive shapes are shapes that have details inside, such as an outline of a human body, while a negative shape is a shape without any details; it’s just an outline. The representation shapes are shapes created by flattening out three-dimensional objects.
