Negative Space

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

Negative space is the space an object does not occupy. It's also the outter shape of the object. 

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

In my drawing I drew the out line of each object and erased the lines where they intersected. In my cut out I cut out the different layers of the bird and then I put every other layer on oposite sides of the paper. 

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

It gives them an idea of how to start and portray their artwork. 

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

It enhances drawings because it gives you the basic shape of the drawing and it makes it easier for the viewer to identify what the picture is supposed to portray.
