Negative Space Reflection:
A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it) - Negative space is showing the space between all different figures in reality.
B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing? I find negative by looking at the actual object.
C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space? It can be helpful because it shows what they need to add or decrease.
D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not? Not to me it makes things unclear and not able to understand the drawings.
Negative space is the space that is not apart of the object.This space is like the emptiness in a shape. Exp.In a chair there might be a whole in the chair, and that would be the space.
B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?
In my cutout I just chose what I wanted to be my negative space. It didn't really matter when I cut out the white and black shapes. In the stool drawing it was easy to find the negative space because it was basically just the empty space between the stool.
C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?
It helps the artist see all the details of the picture.
D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not
It does because it shows a different more interesting view of the picture.
The topic of conversation will be about the sports that are played in Argentina and how that relates to the culture of the country.
• What are 5 questions related to your conversation goal that you can think of ahead of time to ask your partner?
1. What is the most popular sport in Argentina?
2. What kinds of sports do you play?
3. What is your favorite football team?
4. Do most children like playing sports in Argentina?
5. Who is your favorite soccer player?
• What are you looking forward to about this conversation?
I am looking forward to learning about the sports of Argentina since I myself is a big sports fan who follows professional football and even play football on SLA's varsity football team.
• What are you nervous about?
I am only a little nervous about having a full conversation without using a translator. However, I have learned how to deal with this from my work on my first goal.
• Who did I speak with and why did I choose that person?
I spoke to Juan Vela and I spoke to this person because I wanted to know about sports in Argentina and he is a native of Argentina.
• What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?
I learned that Juan is a very passionate soccer fan. I learned that football is the most popular sport in Argentina but other popular sports include volleyball, tennis and basketball. I also found out that Juan plays football and tennis. His favorite football team in Argentina is Boca. Juan's favorite player is Carlos Tevez. Juan also learned that I also play football for my school and my favorite football team is Man City in the English Premier League.
• How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goal?
I am very passionate about soccer and I wanted to learn about soccer in foreign countries and Argentina has one of the best national soccer teams. I have learned a lot of sports vocabulary while at the same time learning about something that I enjoy doing. I also liked that my conversation with Juan included different tenses.
B. For my cut out, I found negative space in the outlining of the different parts. For the stool, I first focused on the outline of the stools and then looked at the space outside the outline, not inside.C. Seeing negative space can give an artist more insight into what they are drawing, and how the object affects the space around it.
D. I think that negative space enhances a drawing, because you become more aware of the environment that the object you are drawing is placed in.
A. The space between the objects and air. It helps you not get confuse on if the drawing is an item or just blank space.
B. Cut out:
The black paper helped me determine the negative space.
The dark area helped me determine the negative space.
C. It help an artist to see in negative space so the artist would get distracted by the empty space before the object itself.
D. Seeing in negative space enhance drawings because it make it seems more realistic.
Negative space is the opposite of an object that is drawn. It is all the space that is around your drawing. For example if you draw a lamp all the negative space is around the lamp.
In my stool drawing I found negative space where there wasn’t any stool. For example, I found negative space between the legs of the stool. The rest of the negative space was basically in the background of the stools. In my cut out, all the negative space was found in all the light areas of the picture.
Negative space helps artist draw the shapes for each drawing. I do think it enhances drawings because it makes positive space stand out. Also I think it looks cooler.
