Negative Space Drawing

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

Negitive space is drawing the background, of an object not the actual object.

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

I found negative space in my cut out when I pasted my turqouise pieces down on bright paper I could really see the negative space. I found negative space in my still life drawing, by shading in between the white space around my object.

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

It helps an artisit to see negative space because the object becomes clearer

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

It does enhance drawings because the object becomes more prominant. More frount and center.
