Symmetrical Balance: A balance arrangement in which the parts of a composition are organized so that one side duplicates or mirrors the other.
Approximate (Modified) Symmetry: The use of forms that are similar yet different, on either side of a vertical axis.
Asymmetrical Balance: A feeling of balance attained when visual units on either side of a vertical axis are actually different but are placed in the composition to create a "felt" balance of the total artwork. We will be looking at three different types of asymmetrical balance: Golden Ratio, Rule of Thirds, and "Golden Triangle."
Space: An element of art that indicates areas between, around, above, below, or within something.

From Golden Ratio to Rule of Thirds:
The "Golden Triangle:" In art, the "golden triangle" describes a way that a diagonal
line can be used to create an interesting composition. The "golden triangle" is created by placing a diagonal line from one corner of a picture plane to another; then another line connects the diagonal line to a third corner at a ninety degree angle.
