Negative/ Positive space cut out

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

Negative space is the blank space on any canvas. If you draw a boat on the sea you could make the boat the positive space, that is colored in and the negative space could be the sea, which would not be colored in. Or vice Versa.

B. Explain how you found negative space in your cut out?

I found negative space in my cut out by mirroring the positive space. Whenever I cut something out in red I knew it would have to be mirror on the other side in orange. The red represents positive space and Orange represents the negative space. 

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

When an artist sees in negative space they are seeing other possibilities for their artwork.

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

Seeing in negative space adds an interesting effect on the drawing, in my opinion it adds perspective, it makes the viewer wonder what else is possible for a drawing. The contrast in the colors used does make the picture pop.
