Negative and Positive space

A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)
Negative space is the space between and around the object. When you draw a picture the blank space around the picture is considered the negative space.

B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?
When I was finding the negative space in my cut out I just looked around the edge of the tree. When i was doing the drawling of my stool i just looked in the spaces where the stool wasn't drawn. 

C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?
It helps an artist to see negative space cause the can see where the lines stop in the drawling and you can see the detail in the picture.

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

Yes seeing negative space enhances the drawings cause you eyes will be more focused on the picture.
