Negative Space Reflection

A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)
Negative space is the intentional emptiness left in an image 

B. Explain how you found negative space in 
1. your cut out? By looking at the space that surrounded it and by looking at the opposite side of the page. 
2. in your stool drawing. By looking at the surrounding background to see what image the negative space creates. 

C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?
It helps an artist to see negative space because it allows them to freely create two images within one.

D. How is negative space useful in creating art?
Negative space is useful because it allows you to be able to imagine what you thinking the image is by looking at the negative space or surrounding background. For example an image might be one thing by looking at the surrounding background, and when looking at the negative space it may be something different.
