Negative Space

A. What is negative space?

Negative space is the space around an object. It is like a silhouette but the other way around.


B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?

I found negative space in my cut out by cutting out all the different shapes out of a half sheet of paper and then I glued them on a full sheet and put all the negatives on one side and all the positives on the other side. I found negative space in my stool drawing by outlining the objects and the shading in the area outside of it.


C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

It helps an artist because it shows them the difference between light and dark.

D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not

I think that seeing negative space does enhance drawings because it shows contrast and it makes the drawings look more complicated and interesting.

Negative Space

What is negative space?
Negative Space is a drawing where you have to draw what you see the outline of the object not the whole thing then using your observations. Color or shade in the blank space or the negative space.

Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?

How I found negative space in my cut out is that by looking at the example on the wall and using that drawing I pointed out my negative space. Then on my stool drawing when I finished my outline I saw these space that I knew on the top of my head was negative space

Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

What helps an artist to see negative space is just drawing the outline of the art and then the details after that what you see is blank space is negative space

Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not?

Some of the enhance drawing does have negative space because all drawing has to have some blank space in the drawing that can become the negative space.

Negative space

1.     Negative space is the space in a drawing that is not the drawing. The negative space would be the space in between the lines of the drawing. If you were to draw a tree in a field, the negative space would be everything but the tree itself.

2.     In my drawing, I found negative space by looking in between the legs of the stool. In my cutout I found negative space by cutting out the shape, then cutting around the shape.

3.     It helps an artist to see in negative space, because it gives them an even better understanding of what they’re drawing, and helps them to visualize the end product.

4.     I think that seeing in negative space does enhance drawing, because it gives the artist a better understanding of what they’re doing.

Negative Space- Tang, Aaron


A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)?

Negative space is images that have no lines connecting. The picture shows that the outer piece of the drawing is going to be shaded which is the negative space. For example, there are white and blue and the white part of the drawing is positive space. The black is negative because of the background. When the image had no lines, it will call it a silhouette. 


B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. Your cut out? 2. In your stool drawing?

The cut out as shown below which is the owl. To find out the negative space it, will be the dark blue one. I noticed that the dark blue one is the background of the negative space. The light blue one shows the shape of the owl, and the two colors will show a picture of my image. For my second step of drawing, I drew stools by looking at the view. I drew all the stools with lines connected, but at the end I erase the lines so the picture can be a one unite. I shaded the remainder to make it negative space. The white part is showing the positive space of the image. 

C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

One reason why artist can see in the negative space is giving a visual of the image. The positive and the negative let people identify the picture. Without the details of the drawing, artists can see what it is. 

D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not

I think it is because people don't have to draw every little detail. With using the technique of negative space and positive space, it will show a better design. Also, people can visualize the image a lot faster.

Negative Space

A. What is negative space?
Negative space is essentially a reverse silhouette, where every part of an object is left white (or blank) and the surrounding space is coloured a different colour. 


B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?

I found the negative space in my cutout by first tracing over the positive portions of the stencil. By cutting the shape of the positive stencil out of a designated half-sheet of construction paper I created the negative and positive needed for my project. 

In my stool drawing I first had to draw the outline of the shape. Once it was fairly accurate I created the negative space by shading around the figure.

C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

It helps to see in negative space because by doing so a person can be more detailed and accurate in forming outlines. Also, it teaches balance of light and dark in a drawing. 

D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not?

Seeing in negative space enhances drawings because in using negative space, a person creates areas of rest for the eyes (that's the negative area) and interesting tension (positive).

    The person I talked to was very nice and they answered all my questions I needed to know about they're country and they also told me about themselves as well. They told me how the streets aren't really that safe and there's a lot of crimes/thefts. As for the education, neighboring countries come to learn in their country. They have a lot of public schools as well. The country of where he is from is where the "Tango" (dance)came from. This guy is also in a rock band  (He's the guitarist) and him and his band play at clubs and events. Overall, this was a nice person to chat with. 
  • How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goal?


    It help me learn a lot about the country then what I would learn in a text book or a website on the internet. 
  • What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations?

  • Who did I speak with and why did I choose that person?
    I spoke with Max. He is my friend and I knew that we were good at helping each other. 
  • What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?

    I learned some things from him. More about him though rather than any spanish. 
  • How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goal?

    This interaction helped me because it was a great starting place for me. 
  • What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations?

    I tried to talk more about him instead of myself. 
  • What specifically do you need to improve on? (Quote specific things you said or did and what you would have done or said if you could do it again)

    I need to talk more about myself and stop asking the other person questions.

A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)
In art, there are blank spaces( as in spaces where the air goes). This is called negative space.

B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?

In the cut out, I understood that the certain color was negative space. On one side i used that as orange, on the other side, it was highlighted in the brown. 

In the stool, I used  space where the air was, that's what negative space is.

C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

It helps artists to see negative space because it allows them to have a better composition of their pieces. 

D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not


Drawing showing Negative Space enhances the intensity of the the shape itself. However, for detail, I feel it takes away.

Wynn Geary N/P space

"What is negative space?" 
Q1) Negative space is essentially the opposite of what you are used to draw. It allows you to focus on the shape of the object you are drawing opposed to say, texture.

Q2) In my drawing I just drew as normal then I erased any lines inside my "positive space" then i colored in the background and any holes where you could see the background. In my cut  out, I found it really easy, I was shadowing last year at the same time they were doing this, so I found this really easy. 

Q3) negative space helps the artist see the shape of what they are drawing


Q4) I personally don't think that Negative space enhances drawings. I prefer texture in a drawing opposed to shape, so it doesn't really apply.
