Negative Space drawings

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

Negative space is the space that is not apart of the object.This space is like the emptiness in a shape. Exp.In a chair there might be a whole in the chair, and that would be the space.

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

In my cutout I just chose what I wanted to be my negative space. It didn't really matter when I cut out the white and black shapes. In the stool drawing it was easy to find the negative space because it was basically just the empty space between the stool.

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

It helps the artist see all the details of the picture.

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

It does because it shows a different more interesting view of the picture.
